AMD is launching two new versions of the AMD Embedded Radeon GPUs, the E9560 and the E9390.
Both are based on AMD’s Polaris 10 GPU, and are designed to fit in to AMD’s existing E9000 family of embedded video cards, as part of what AMD calls its “ultra-high performance” band. The E9560 is a 36 CU part with a max TDP of 130 Watts, and up to 5.7 theoretical TFLOPS of performance. Meanwhile the E9390 is a 28 CU part with a lower TDP of 75W, allowing it to work in systems without an auxiliary PCIe power connector. It provides up to 3.9 theoretical TFLOPS of performance.
AMD says that the E9560 delivers up to 11% more performance compared to the existing E9550.
These two new cards are in the PCIe form factor, use 8GB of GDDR5 memory and support 4K high-speed video, 3D visualizations and other compute-intensive graphics applications seen in the casino and arcade gaming.
The memory used by graphics cards, GDDR5, is being phased out across the industry for an updated standard, GDDR6. To help its customers manage this transition, the E9560 and E9390, as well as the company's existing ‘Polaris’ architecture E-Series GPUs will have planned availability until 2022.
