Once a GPU architecture on the Polaris were in professional and desktop graphics cards, is not far away was their appearance in embedded solutions. Finally, AMD introduced models E9260 and E9550, which uses a new generation GPU.
Daylight Polaris chips plays an important role in embedded solutions, as new GPU open up new possibilities. This includes support for HDMI 2.0b, and DiplayPort 1.3 / 1.4. The new standards will be used to display products of the long diagonal. No less important is also an opportunity to decode 4K-content codec H.265. Finally, the feasibility of using the new GPU can be attributed to increased efficiency and reduced power consumption.
AMD Embedded Radeon E9550 replaces the E8950. It uses a full chip Polaris 10 with 36 CU and 2,304 stream processors. Performance calculations of single precision of 5,8 TFLOPS. By the GPU on a 256-bit bus connected to 8 GB GDDR5 video memory. Maximum capacity of new items should be 95 watts. An important factor in the market of embedded solutions is support for the manufacturer of products. In the case of Embedded Radeon E9550 the company promises support for three years.
The second novelty is the Embedded Radeon E9260. This model is available in two versions: version of PCI Express, and the MXM. Both versions are based on the Polaris 11 14 CU and 896 shaders. Both models use 4 GB of graphics memory, connected by a 128-bit interface. TDP should not exceed 50 watts.
All three models of embedded graphics cards should be coming soon. Unfortunately, AMD did not name the price of new products. Thin clients are the main devices range of applications, casino equipment, medicine, industry, and various automated solutions.
