MACAO, CHINA (Mar짯ket짯wired) 05/20/14 G2E

AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announ짯ced the 2nd gene짯ra짯ti짯on AMD Embedded R몊eries acce짯le짯ra짯ted pro짯ces짯sing unit (APU) and CPU fami짯ly (pre짯vious짯ly code짯na짯med 쏝ald Eagle) for embedded appli짯ca짯ti짯ons. The new solu짯ti짯ons are tar짯ge짯ted at gam짯ing machi짯nes, medi짯cal ima짯ging, digi짯tal signage, indus짯tri짯al con짯trol and auto짯ma짯ti짯on (IC&A), com짯mu짯ni짯ca짯ti짯ons and net짯wor짯king infra짯struc짯tu짯re that requi짯re indus짯try-lea짯ding com짯pu짯te and gra짯phics pro짯ces짯sing technology.

When it comes to com짯pu짯te per짯for짯mance, gra짯phics per짯for짯mance and per짯for짯mance-per-watt, the 2nd gene짯ra짯ti짯on AMD Embedded R몊eries fami짯ly is uni짯que in the embedded mar짯ket, said Scott Aylor, cor짯po짯ra짯te vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, AMD Embedded Solu짯ti짯ons. 쏷he addi짯ti짯on of HSA, GCN and power manage짯ment fea짯tures enables our cus짯to짯mers to crea짯te a new world of intel짯li짯gent, inter짯ac짯ti짯ve and immersi짯ve embedded devices.

The 2nd gene짯ra짯ti짯on AMD R몊eries APU and CPU solu짯ti짯ons are desi짯gned for mid- to high-end visu짯al and par짯al짯lel com짯pu짯te-inten짯si짯ve embedded appli짯ca짯ti짯ons with sup짯port for Linux, RTOS and Win짯dows ope짯ra짯ting sys짯tems. The new solu짯ti짯ons ran짯ge from 2.23.6 GHz CPU fre짯quen짯cy with max boost, based on AMD셲 latest CPU archi짯tec짯tu짯re (code짯na짯med: 쏶team짯rol짯ler) and 533686 MHz GPU fre짯quen짯cy based on AMD셲 latest Gra짯phics Core Next (GCN) archi짯tec짯tu짯re, desi짯gned to advan짯ce the visu짯al growth and par짯al짯lel pro짯ces짯sing capa짯bi짯li짯ties of embedded applications.
