AMD G-Series APUs

AMD introduced today two new Embedded G-Series APUs with an amazing TDP rating of 5.5 and 6.4 watts, up to 39 percent power saving compared to earlier designs. These new APU's support one or two low-power x86 "Bobcat" CPU cores with a discreet DirectX-11 capable GPU on a single die.

This ultra low APU can be used on systems with a fanless design like, mobile industrial devices, kiosks, digital signage and many other small form factor devices.

 “We have seen many of our embedded customers deploy fanless systems even with our 15W TDP processors in the past. Today we take the ground-breaking AMD Fusion APU well below 7W TDP and shatter the accepted traditional threshold for across-the-board fanless enablement,” said Buddy Broeker, director, Embedded Solutions, AMD.

Systems based on the new low power AMD Embedded G-Series platform include an industrial mobile device from Amtek, a Pico-ITX single board computer from Axiomtek, a Qseven form factor computer-on-module from datakamp, and a fanless digital signage platform from iBASE. Additional customers are expected to bring new products to market in the coming quarters.
