Alien: Covenant's "Walter" Synthetic Is Powered by AMD

It turns out that not only is AMD alive and well 90 years from now (assuming my Alien timeline calculations are correct), the company is also the primary CPU supplier for Weyland-Wutani Corp.’s synthetics. Michael Fassbender plays an updated model of his Android character from Prometheus, now part of the "Walter" line and powered by Ryzen and Radeon. Maybe he’ll get killed by an alien when his software accidentally reverts to a lower resolution and his performance suffers.

Introducing Walter, the latest synthetic by Weyland-Yutani. Created to serve. Intelligence powered by AMD, Ryzen and Radeon. Discover yours at: Walter is the world’s most advanced synthetic companion, designed to help you achieve a better human experience. Each model is individually calibrated to serve its owner’s unique set of needs and preferences.
