AMD's home-entertainment platform to go live in June

The first PCs based on AMD's Live home-entertainment platform will ship next month.

The first systems based on Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Live home-entertainment platform will go on sale next month, the chip maker said Wednesday.

AMD's Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor will feature in PCs manufactured by Acer, Dell's Alienware, Hewlett-Packard, and China's Tsinghua Tongfang, the company said. The new PCs, which are optimized for use with streaming media, will be available beginning in June.

The chip maker is looking to grab market share from Intel, whose Core Duo processor powers many PCs, including models of Lenovo Group's ThinkPad line and Apple Computer's MacBooks.

The AMD Live Entertainment Suite allows a PC to distribute content to other devices via a home network, such as music to a stereo system and video to a television. Some of the applications are available for free download at http://www.amdlive.com.

AMD debuted the Live brand at this year's International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
