On last Wednesday AMD announced what it claims the world’s first accelerated processing unit for embedded systems – the Embedded G-Series.
The G-Series is the embedded version of Fusion APUs which had been announced by the company earlier this month. It consists of a low-power x86 CPU combined with a DirectX 11 graphics processing unit and a parallel processing engine. All of them are being together on one piece of silicon.
G-Series processors will target graphics-intensive products such as digital signs, Internet-ready set-top boxes, mobile and desktop thin clients and point of sale kiosks.
