Splashtop Optimized for AMD GPU and APU, Enabling Remote 3D Gaming & Professional Graphics
By Integrating AMD Media SDK with AMF-DEM Library, Splashtop Can Deliver Remote 3D Experience at Low Latency and High Framerate
SAN JOSE, Calif. — March 24, 2014— Splashtop Inc., the worldwide leader in cross-device computing, announced optimization of Splashtop Streamer on select AMD discrete GPUs and APUs. Users can now enjoy remote HD video streaming, 3D professional graphics, and gaming experience, with super low latency.
“Splashtop turns every PC with AMD APU or GPU into fully interactive, remote gaming engine, streaming 3D games to any mobile device,” said Mark Lee, CEO and co-founder of Splashtop, “Businesses, designers, doctors, or financial analysts can now get remote access to professional 3D apps and data, anytime, anywhere.”
By integrating the AMF-DEM library in the Media SDK, Splashtop Streamer can achieve 60 frames per second of encoding 1080P HD experience, at sub 100ms latency. This is 3-4X the performance of Splashtop Streamer without AMF-DEM optimization. Furthermore, by leveraging the hardware acceleration, there is a significant reduction in CPU utilization, enabling the CPU to focus on executing other complex applications.
With Splashtop’s innovative Configurable Shortcuts and Gamepad, Splashtop users enjoy the best remote desktop experience from any mobile touch screen. Overlay a virtual joystick (gamepad) on a mobile device to support an interactive remote 3D game or overlay a scroll bar and shortcut keys to support popular 3D AutoCAD or Adobe ® Premier ® Pro video editing tools to easily bring your desktop PC experience with you on-the-go.
