AMD today announced new CPU offerings for the AMD Embedded R-Series computing platform, along with the introduction of a discrete GPU promotional program to provide embedded designers more choices for meeting performance requirements.
The new options include quad-core and dual-core CPUs scaling from 2.2 GHz to 3.2 GHz with Thermal Design Power (TDP) ranging from 17 to 35 watts for applications that require high performance x86 compute such as network attached storage (NAS). To address high-end visual needs for applications like digital gaming and signage that require high-performance x86 compute coupled with discrete graphics, AMD is introducing a new discrete GPU promotional program that provides its customers with both a CPU and discrete GPU for savings of up to 20 percent.
AMD claims that the new AMD R-Series CPUs offer up to 2.5X greater performance-per-dollar compared to Intel i3 processors. The discrete graphics promotional program combines new AMD R-Series CPUs with discrete AMD Radeon E6460 or E6760 graphics for driving up to six independent displays.
The new AMD Embedded R-Series CPU options are currently available, with products from Advantech, Advantech-Innocore, Aewin, DFI, MSC Embedded, Quixant and other original design manufacturers (ODMs). The new orderable part numbers (OPNs) are:
- AMD Embedded R-Series RE464X CPU - Quad-core, 35W TDP, CPU freq. 2.3GHz, Max boost freq. 3.2GHz
- AMD Embedded R-Series RE272X CPU - Dual-core, 35W TDP, CPU freq. 2.70GHz, Max boost freq. 3.2GHz
- AMD Embedded R-Series RE264X CPU - Dual-core, 17W TDP, CPU freq. 2.2GHz, Max boost freq. 2.8GHz
