AMD today announced the immediate availability of the new AMD Embedded G-Series processor, which is the world’s first and currently only Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) for embedded systems according to the company.
The AMD Embedded G-Series, based on AMD Fusion technology, combines the company’s new low-power, x86 CPU based on the “Bobcat” core with a DirectX 11-capable graphics processing unit (GPU) and parallel processing engine on a single piece of silicon.
According to AMD this new class of processors “combines more compute capabilities on a single die than any processor in the history of computing and represents opportunity for major advancements in embedded systems.”
There are already a few embedded systems based on the AMD Embedded G-Series available as of today in the States from a range of manufacturers including Fujitsu. Manufacturers offer a variety of products such as internet-ready set top boxes, casino gaming machines, point-of-sale kiosks, as well as small form factor PCs.
“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.
“Today, we have a record number of embedded launch partners. They are using the unique advancements of the AMD Embedded G-Series APU to develop a brand new generation of highly differentiated, energy-efficient, small form-factor embedded systems that can deliver the vivid visual experience expected in our always-connected world.”
