AMD technology used for production in Star Wars: Episode II

June 27, 2002 – Sunnyvale, CA – AMD has announced its collaboration with JAK Films and Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), a division of Lucas Digital Ltd. LLC, in the production of “Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones”.

JAK Films used AMD Athlon MP processor-based workstations in its labs to advance the art of cinema storyboarding through digital pre-visualization. ILM used a high-performance cluster of AMD Athlon MP processor-based servers designed and manufactured by RackSaver.

“Our goal was to paint an accurate picture of what `Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones’ would look like long before filming was even started,” said Dan Gregoire, director of the pre-visualization lab, JAK Films. “Our AMD Athlon MP processor-based systems are ideal for running the software we rely upon.”
