CES 2012 Las Vegas, Nevada – Just when you thought our CES coverage was over we bring you our coverage of AMD and a few of the products that they wanted to show off during CES. AMD’s booth this year was somewhat out of the way. Although many companies choose to be on the main floor of the show AMD was up in what almost seemed like a back corner in the meeting room area. This did not mean that they did not bring out some cool stuff. It just seemed like they really were not looking to deal with the madness of the show floor.
According to market research company Gartner, nearly 85% of televisions manufactured in 2016 will have integrated capabilities for Internet access. Principal research analyst at Gartner, Paul O'Donovan said “In the end, the choice may be all about the extra content that one TV brand offers over another. Consumers will be asking questions such as, which Internet TV services can the TV access? Are these the sites I think are valuable? Can I use my smartphone or tablet with this TV?”
At CES in Las Vegas a flood of smart televisions showed up, they are special because of their characteristics that combine the TV and a computer inside of the same device.

Additionally they found that of all the services and applications they are offered they use only those that allow streaming of video, film and TV.
At the moment, LG is offering two TVs based on the Google TV platform.
