AMD announces new R-series CPUs and discrete AMD Radeon GPU bundle
Press release, August 21; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 21 August 2013]

AMD has announced new CPU offerings for the AMD Embedded R-series high-performance computing platform, along with the introduction of a discrete GPU promotional program.

The new options include quad-core and dual-core CPUs scaling from 2.2GHz to 3.2GHz with TDP ranging from 17-35W for applications that require high performance x86 compute such as network attached storage (NAS). To address high-end visual needs for applications like digital gaming and signage that require high-performance x86 compute coupled with discrete graphics, AMD is introducing a new discrete GPU promotional program that provides customers with both a CPU and discrete GPU for savings of up to 20%.

The new AMD R-series CPUs offer up to 2.5X greater performance-per-dollar compared to Intel i3 processors, AMD claimed. The discrete graphics promotional program combines new AMD R-series CPUs with discrete AMD Radeon E6460 or E6760 graphics for driving up to six independent displays. These new options are designed to provide cost-effective solutions for maximum compute and graphics capabilities.

The new AMD Embedded R-series CPU options are currently available, with products from Advantech, Advantech-Innocore, Aewin, DFI, MSC Embedded, Quixant and other ODMs.
