The E8950MXM module is intended for power users, where the E8870 series (MXM and PCIe) is for those a little less so, and then there's the balanced, power-conscious option in the E6465 series (MCM, MXM and PCIe). The full breakdown of each from AMD is below.those a little less so, and then there's the balanced, power-conscious option in the E6465 series (MCM, MXM and PCIe). The full breakdown of each from AMD is below.

E8950MXM

The new AMD Embedded Radeon E8950MXM Module is an incredibly powerful discrete GPU that is well-suited for GPGPU compute and built for 4K applications with support for 4K decode, 4K encode, and up to six 4K displays. This product is ideal for high-end casino and arcade gaming machines, medical imaging devices and military/aerospace applications. The MXM module is a smaller form factor solution than standard commercial GPUs, making it ideal for systems with small space requirements, such as airplane cockpit controls and ultrasound machines.

Key features include:

  • Type B Mobile PCI-Express Module (MXM)
  • 32 Compute Units1; 3 TFLOPS single precision (Peak)
  • 8GB GDDR5 Memory; 256-bit wide
  • <95W Thermal Design Power
  • Support for 4K hardware-accelerated decode and encode
  • AMD Eyefinity technology for up to 6 display outputs2
  • Support for DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.5, and OpenCL 2.0

AMD Embedded Radeon E8870MXM Module and E8870PCIe Board options provide a balance of performance, power, capabilities and price to meet the needs of most customers. These options are well-suited for casino and arcade gaming machines, many medical imaging devices, and digital signage installations.

E8870MXM and E8870PCIe

  • 12 Compute Units; 1.5 TFLOPS single precision (Peak)
  • 4GB GDDR5 Memory; 128-bit wide
  • <75W Thermal Design Power
  • Dual HD decode of H.264, VC-1, MPEG-4 and MPEG-2
  • AMD Eyefinity technology for up to 6 display outputs
  • Support for DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.5, and OpenCL 2.0

E6465MCM, E6465MXM and E6465PCIe

The power-efficient AMD Embedded Radeon E6465MCM GPU, E6465MXM Module and E6465PCIe Board all provide excellent processing performance at low power in a small form factor, making them well-suited for mobile signage, retail and kiosks, factory human-machine interface systems, heads-up conventional military/aerospace displays, and thin client computers.

  • 2 Compute Units; 192 GFLOPS single precision (Peak
  • 2GB GDDR5 Memory; 64-bit wid
  • <20W Thermal Design Power
  • Dual HD decode of H.264, VC-1, MPEG-4 and MPEG-2
  • AMD Eyefinity technology for up to 4 display outputs
  • Support for Direct X11.1, OpenGL 4.5, and OpenCL 1.2
