Chip designer AMD has unveiled the embedded Radeon E9170 series graphics processing unit (GPU).

According to the vendor, the new processor is 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, as well as PCI Express and MXM formats for standard form factor systems.

The E9170 Series GPU is ideal for devices that require premium graphics and expanded display capabilities while meeting exacting power and thermal efficiency demands.

"Developers are continuing to push the boundaries on what's possible for embedded systems, demanding more performance, more features and more design options, all while significantly reducing power consumption. At the GPU level, it is critical to provide versatile solutions that do not compromise on graphics performance or 4K multi-display capabilities," said Colin Cureton, director of product management, AMD Enterprise Solutions.

Cureton added that: "The new AMD embedded Radeon E9170 series GPU not only achieves up to 3X the performance-per-watt over previous solutions, but is the first ‘Polaris'-based embedded GPU available in the MCM form factor to enable sleek designs in a variety of sizes, striking the optimal balance of performance and power efficiency."
