AMD Announces New Discrete Graphics Chipsets for Embedded Systems
AMD today announced an array of new discrete AMD Embedded Radeon™ graphics options suitable for multiple form factors. The new offerings are specifically designed to enhance the visual and parallel processing capabilities of embedded applications.
According to the U.S.-based semiconductor company, the new set of discrete embedded graphics chipsets is aimed at providing on-screen graphics for arcades, electronic signs, sales terminals, medical and industrial equipment, surveillance camera systems, financial and education terminals, and so on.
“The demand for rich, vibrant graphics in embedded systems is greater than ever before, and that demand is growing,” said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Embedded Solutions.
“Our latest additions to the embedded product lineup help designers build mesmerizing user experiences with 4K multi-screen installations and 3-D and interactive displays. In addition, the powerful capabilities of our GPUs can address the toughest parallel compute challenges.”
The suite of products addresses to a broad range of needs, from 192 GFLOPS to 3 TFLOPS of single precision performance, and from 20 to less than 95 watts of thermal design power.
The products are offered as a Multi-Chip Module (MCM), Mobile PCI Express® Module (MXM) and PCIe® options, with AMD offering the only MCM solutions. All of these products deliver extended support and longevity, with the right balance of performance, power and graphics memory size.
The new discrete graphics cards span three levels of performance within the embedded market: Ultra-High Performance, High Performance and Power Efficient. These offerings are as follows:
- Ultra-High Performance: The AMD Embedded Radeon™ E8950MXM Module, the highest performing embedded graphics processing unit (GPU) from AMD.
- High Performance: The AMD Embedded Radeon™ E8870 Series (MXM and PCIe), offering high performance solutions for virtually any embedded application.
- Power Efficient: The AMD Embedded Radeon™ E6465 Series (MCM, MXM and PCIe) providing excellent processing performance at low levels of power consumption.
