DTF 2010: AMD introduces new graphics module for embedded systems
Press release, January 22; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Friday 22 January 2010]

AMD has introduced the ATI Radeon E4690 Mobile PCI Express module (MXM) for the graphics-intensive embedded systems at the Digitimes Tech Forum (DTF) 2010 in Taiwan.

The ATI Radeon E4690 MXM features more than triple the 3D graphics performance of previously available solutions with low CPU utilization and enhanced picture quality. With its massively parallel, programmable architecture, the ATI Radeon E4690 MXM is designed for compute intensive, embedded applications such as digital signage, image recognition, signal processing and surveillance, arcade and casino games, and medical imaging, the company detailed.

Working in collaboration with ALT Software, AMD is able to offer customers an alternative to custom programming by developing a standards-based parallel processing API, helping them to improve performance in embedded computing systems by leveraging the power of the GPU, the company said.

The E4690 MXM features 512MB of on-board GDDR3 memory, 320 shader processors, a set of display output options and adjustable system clocks for exacting power and performance requirements.

As the industry's only embedded graphics chip to offer support for both Microsoft DirectX 10.1 and AMD's Unified Video Decoder 2 (UVD 2), the E4690 MXM enables competitive advantages for AMD's embedded customers by providing graphics support coupled with high quality video playback performance, AMD pointed out.

Incorporating ATI PowerPlay intelligent power management technology, the E4690 MXM is designed to optimize power consumption and enable exceptional performance per watt for power sensitive embedded applications.

System designers have flexibility with a comprehensive selection of outputs including dual-independent display controllers, integrated DisplayPort, integrated single- and dual-link LVDS, integrated single- and dual-link DVI /TMDS/HDMI and analogue outputs.

Supported by ATI Stream technology, the E4690 MXM can replace numerous system hardware components, helping to reduce overall system power, size, and cost, AMD added.
