AMD has just announced a new integrated GPU for the embedded market. Dubbed ATI Radeon E4690, the graphics set is said to triple the performance of the company’s prior offerings in this segment, bringing with it 512MB of 700MHz GDDR3 RAM, DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.0 support, as well as UVD 2.0 for decoding H.264 and VC-1 high-definition video and CrossFireX support.
AMD promises discrete GPU levels of performance with a maximum frequency of 600MHz, 320 shader processing units and a 128-bit memory interface; all while consuming between 8 and 25 watts of power. Rather than targeting the consumer market, the company expects their ATI Radeon E4690 to find a place in arcade, casino and digital signage applications, and has pledged to support the GPU for the next five years.
