AMD announces the G-Series line of embedded APUs

AMD announces a new line of APUs for embedded applications that need a high-power GPU

| CPU, APU & Chipsets News | Posted: Jun 25, 2012 5:08 pm

AMD has announced a new line of APUs for use in embedded applications. The new APUs are the first to combine a low-power CPU and a discrete-level GPU into a single integrated circuit for use in embedded applications. The high performance graphics capabilities allow the APU to power a wide array of devices such as slot machines and airline schedule screens.

AMD bills the part as being perfect for Digital Signage, x86 Set-Top-Box (xSTB), IP-TV, Thin Client, Information Kiosk, Point-of-Sale, and Casino Gaming, media servers and industrial control systems. The APU comes in a BGA package featuring a new, power-optimized CPU processing core to provide more bang for the user's buck.

 

The features are as follows:

 

  • DirectX® 11 support lets you enjoy awesome graphics performance, stunning 3D visual effects and dynamic interactivity.
  • Advanced discrete-level GPU with OpenGL 4.0 and OpenCL™ 1.1 support in an integrated device provides support to build the designs of tomorrow, today.
  • Unprecedented graphics performance/watt thru advanced graphics and hardware acceleration delivering over 3X performance per watt of previous generation.
  • Selective models, T56N and T40N, have additional boost capability enabled by AMD Turbo Core technology without additional power draw.
  • The integration of the APU reduces the foot print of a traditional three-chip platform to two chips, the APU and its companion controller hub. This simplifies the design, requiring fewer board layers and a smaller power supply, further driving down system costs.
  • The AMD G-T16R APU with an average power of only 2.3 Watts, enables very small form factor, fan-less and portable applications.
