Sunnyvale, Calif. - Chipmaker AMD has developed a new
that will debut this weekend in select TigerDirect stores.
The Vision Experience Center (VEC) is a 6-foot-tall visual merchandising display featuring an
touchscreen interface and cloud-based services to help customers select the best AMD desktop and notebook components or platforms based on their computing needs rather than on technical specs alone.
By providing crucial product information available online while shopping in-store, the VEC extends TigerDirect's and sister chain CompUSA's Internet-based Retail 2.0 store concept, which allows shoppers to access price and product information -- and even browse competitors' Web sites -- from in-store display screens adjacent to the product.
AMD and TigerDirect will discuss the VEC and the future of Retail 2.0 during a webcast on Saturday, Aug. 28, at 2:00 p.m. EST at
