The demos promise to feature full HD streaming online video; immersive online gaming with high image-quality settings and accelerated Internet browsing side-by-side against currently available AMD- and Intel processor-based notebooks .

Throughout the week, AMD executives will post frequent blog entries on AMD's official blog on the company's demonstrations as well as commentary on new developments in the CPU, GPU and APU markets. The first two updates discuss the consumer PC market and the software developer ecosystem.
