This week AMD announced a host of new multi-core CPUs for its R-series embedded line as well as a new discrete GPU promotional program. The program combines one of AMD's new R-series CPUs with discrete Radeon E6460 or E6760 graphics and is designed to offer more choices and savings of up to 20 percent to embedded designers with high performance requirements.
"There is a need for a greater variety of processor and graphics options in several market segments ranging from storage to digital signage and gaming to meet ever growing performance requirements," said Kamal Khouri, director of Embedded Products, AMD.
"The AMD Embedded R-Series CPU platform targets performance-intensive embedded applications with a new discrete graphics program to meet the diverse, high-performance requirements of the embedded engineering community. These new choices offer higher compute and graphics throughput plus compelling TCO for the embedded market."
AMD's new CPUs include the quad-core 2.3 GHz RE464X (3.2 GHz max boost frequency, 35W TDP) as well as two dual-core offerings. These are the 2.7 GHz RE272X (3.2 GHz max boost frequency, 35W TDP), and the 2.2 GHz RE264X (2.8 GHz max boost frequency, 17W TDP). All three are already available from ODMs.
