NORCROSS, GA / TAIPEI, TAIWAN: AMI, an industry leader in UEFI and BIOS, remote management, Android™ solutions and data storage innovations, sponsored the recently held Fall 2014 edition of the UEFI PlugFest in Taipei, Taiwan from October 13-17. The UEFI PlugFest is a semi-annual interoperability testing event hosted by Unified EFI Forum (UEFI) members for attendees to gather and conduct intensive testing, as well as network and listen to presentations on the latest developments in UEFI-related technologies from industry colleagues.
Attendees covered the entire industry ecosystem, including other independent BIOS vendors (IBVs) along with peripheral manufacturers Chelsio, Nvidia, Realtek and SanDisk, OS vendors Canonical, Microsoft and SUSE, system manufacturers ASUS, Dell and teams from HP’s Server and Workstation Divisions, plus representatives of silicon manufacturers including ASMEDIA and Intel’s SSG and Mobile groups.
Hardware tested at the event included some of the latest platforms from Intel Corporation, such as upcoming versions of the Intel® Core™ M, Core™ i3/i5/i7 and Xeon™ processor series. The majority of attendees held test sessions in the on-site testing suite and reported successful/passing results. Some vendors visited the event for the purpose of getting assistance with their own internally-reported test fail issues.
Underscoring the generally positive feedback received during the event, attendees from the locally-based team from SUSE commented on their satisfaction with the event and testing with AMI platforms – particularly ARM-based 64-bit server platforms – noting that “we experienced good results on AMI’s platforms. Our SUSE Taipei team is very thankful for the help from AMI’s engineers. We had a smooth testing experience at the PlugFest and hope we have more close collaboration in the UEFI server area in the future.”
