Advanced Micro Devices on Tuesday announced new microprocessor offerings for the AMD embedded R-series high-performance computing platform, along with the introduction of a discrete GPU promotional program to provide embedded designers more choices for meeting demanding performance requirements.

The new options include quad-core and dual-core central processing units (CPUs) based on Piledriver micro-architecture scaling from 2.2GHz to 3.2GHz with thermal design power (TDP) ranging from 17W to 35W 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 industry-leading discrete graphics, AMD is introducing a new discrete GPU promotional program that provides customers with both a CPU and discrete GPU for savings of up to 20%. 

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. These new options are designed to provide cost-effective solutions for maximum compute and graphics capabilities. 

The new AMD embedded R-series CPU options are currently available, with products from Advantech, Advantech-Innocore, Aewin, DFI, MSC Embedded, Quixant and other leading original design manufacturers (ODMs). The new orderable part numbers (OPNs) are:

  • AMD embedded RE464X CPU: four cores, 35W TDP, 2.3GHz clock-rate with max boost frequency 3.2GHz;
  • AMD embedded RE272X CPU: two cores, 35W TDP, 2.7GHz clock-rate with max boost frequency 3.2GHz;
  • AMD embedded RE264X CPU: two cores, 17W TDP, 2.2GHz clock-rate with max boost frequency 2.8GHz;

“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. 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,” said Kamal Khouri, director of embedded products at AMD.
