AMD has announced its 3rd-generation AMD Embedded G-Series SoCs and the Embedded G-Series LX SoC, providing customers a broadened portfolio of performance options.
The latest offerings expand developers? ability to scale x86 platforms, starting with the entry-level AMD Embedded G-Series LX SoC, which is pin compatible to the previous generation G-Series SoC devices.
Also announced are two new 3rd-generation AMD Embedded G-Series SoCs, codenamed ?Prairie Falcon? and ?Brown Falcon,? which introduce for the first time pin compatibility for G-Series processors with the higher performance AMD Embedded R-Series SoC.
The new products expand upon the low-power capabilities of the AMD Embedded G-Series SoC platform, bringing scalable performance, power, and price across the CPU, GPU, multimedia, and I/O controller hardware.
?The latest AMD Embedded G-Series SoC additions offer our customers a broad range of mainstream embedded solutions, including two that are in the same package as the higher-performance R-Series,? said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager at AMD Enterprise Solutions.
?The new SoCs further our commitment to provide embedded design engineers with an evolutionary path toward the highest levels of power efficient compute and graphics capabilities, and a strong value proposition for a broad range of embedded applications.?
With impressive gains in compute and graphics performance compared to the prior generation embedded G-Series, the new additions to the lineup are ideal for thin clients, IP set-top boxes, and TVs, casino gaming, industrial control and automation, digital signage, and communications networks.
The new models include ?Excavator? x86 CPU cores and 3rd-generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) graphics with support for OpenGL ES, OpenCL, DirectX 12, and EGL.
For greater design flexibility, the new 3rd-Generation Embedded G-Series SoCs, and the AMD Embedded R-Series SoC announced last fall are also all pin compatible.
