AMD and Microsoft present AI Developer Tools for Ryzen 7040 processors
AMD touts its new Ryzen 7040 series as the best processors to make the 'AI-enhanced' laptops of the near future. Now, Windows developers can work on their potential for "unique experiences" with early access to the software rated to offer optimal support and accelerator integration. It is available for "select" Ryzen AI-enabled processors from now.
AMD introduced the Ryzen 7040 series as "the vanguard of a new generation of silicon" superior to other, more conventional x86 processors in terms of handling AI-specific workloads thanks to tweaks such as their Ryzen AI NPUs. Accordingly, the chips are touted to help build compact, ultra-portable devices capable of the most "cutting-edge" features out there.
They apparently include Windows Studio Effects such as Eye Contact (in which one's gaze is auto-corrected for direction at a screen rather than a camera), Automatic Framing and background blur in conferences and video-calls.
Now, developers who want to put the 7040 series' "sophisticated" hardware-based potential to other uses can do so for the first time with a preview of AMD's Developer Tools for Ryzen AI. They confer the ability to run workloads on the open-source Vitis AI Execution Provider framework via ONNX Runtime (with Microsoft Olive support) with XDNA AI Engine acceleration.
Interested developers with a machine based on Ryzen 7040HS (thus far) processors can get started by visting the Ryzen AI Cloud to Client Demo Github from now.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
