AMD has been working towards APUs and processors that I have integrated graphics and CPUs for a long time now. The company has announced that it has launched its first embedded G-Series APU as of today. The Fusion tech inside the new APU uses a combination of a low-power x86CPU based on the Bobcat core and a GPU core.

Along with that Bobcat core comes a DirectX 11 enabled GPU as well that can deliver 3D and graphics processing without needing a separate GPU. The processor has power management features with C6 and power gating along with support for DDR 800 to 1066 memory. The APU can have a single or dual CPU cores inside and has a 9W or 18W TDP depending on the cores inside. It has a third gen unified decoder and has a physical footprint of 890mm square.

 

Those dimensions include the AMD Fusion I/O controller Hub. "AMD's commitment is to ensure the game-changing technologies we develop for consumers and the enterprise are also available for the vast and growing embedded market," said Patrick Patla, corporate vice president and general manager, Server and Embedded Division, AMD.
