AMD to use Coreboot on All upcoming platforms

👤by Tony Le Bourne Comments 📅10.05.2011 15:38:35



AMD are one of Coreboot's largest contributors and are now adding support for the consumer market. Coreboot aims to replace the aging BIOS system and is effectively a stripped down Linux kernal that should allow more flexibility to vendors as well as new power saving options.





"AMD has come to realize that coreboot is useful in a myriad of applications and markets, even beyond what was originally considered." Kevin Tanguay,senior product marketing manager for AMD Embedded Solutions.


With AMD now offering Coreboot to the mainstream, along with OpenBIOS and EFI, there is growing pressure on OEMs to drop the older BIOS system.
