USA: AMD announced the arrival of AMD Embedded Radeon E8860 GPU (codenamed “Adelaar”), making it the industry’s first discrete graphics card based on Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture designed specifically to advance the visual growth and parallel processing capabilities of embedded applications.
Braced with more than double the performance in the same power envelope as its predecessor1, the AMD E8860 GPU delivers 3D and 4K graphics to embedded gaming machines, digital signage, medical imaging, commercial aerospace and conventional military, and other embedded applications.
A 33 percent higher single precision floating point over the previous generation at 768 GFLOPS empowers the AMD E8860 GPU to also blast through the most complex parallel applications like terrain and weather mapping, facial and gesture recognition and biometric and DNA analysis.
“The demand for rich, vibrant graphics and enhanced parallel compute capabilities in embedded systems is greater than ever before, and is expected to continue to grow as we enter the Surround Computing era,” alleged Scott Aylor, corporate VP and GM, AMD Embedded Solutions.
Supplementing that – “Legacy graphics no longer meet the needs of embedded solutions for today and tomorrow. With unprecedented performance-per-watt, the AMD E8860 GPU addresses the need to drive multi-displays, 3D and 4K content and GPGPU compute across small form factors, harsh environments and mission critical applications.”
