AMD announced the new AMD Embedded Radeon E9170 Series GPU, the first "Polaris" architecture-based AMD Embedded discrete GPU available in multi-chip module (MCM) format with integrated memory for smaller, power-efficient custom designs.
The new GPU is also available in PCI Express and MXM formats for standard form factor systems. AMD says that the Radeon E9173 GPU delivers up to 3X performance-per-watt over previous generations and drives up to five simultaneous displays in 4K format for low-power embedded applications in market segments including digital casino games, thin clients, medical displays, retail and digital signage, and industrial systems.
The AMD Embedded Radeon E9173 GPU leverages an optimized 14nm FinFET manufacturing process. By offering sub-40W TDP in a small package, AMD enables a broader range of products, adding scalability to the AMD Radeon Power-Efficient Embedded GPU portfolio.
Key Features of the E9170 Series GPU
- Up to 1.25 TFLOPS at sub-40W TDP board power, delivering up to 3X the performance-per-watt over previous generations.
- 4K optimization and flexible multi-display configurability
- Features include 4K HEVC/H.265iii and AVC/H.264 decode and encode, and up to five display outputs using HDMI 2.0 and/or DisplayPort 1.4.
- Available in compact MCM, standard MXM and PCI Express card form factors.
- 4GB memory (128bit GDDR5) for high-performance needs.
The AMD Embedded Radeon E9170 Series GPU in PCI Express and MXM module configurations are planned to be available in October 2017, and the E9170 Series GPU MCM module configuration is planned for November 2017.
