AMD's New, 4K, 3D, Embedded Radeon E8860 GPU




25th February 2014
AMD have announced the release of its new Embedded Radeon E8860 GPU (codenamed “Adelaar”). The new GPU is built on the Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture and is capable of delivering 3D and 4K graphics to a whole host of devices including embedded gaming machines.

Key Specifications
We could probably cover several articles on this GPU, with most people being asleep before the end, so we figured it would be easier to present the key points in a list instead.
  • 128-bit wide, 2GB GDDR5, 72GB/s frame buffer
  • 80% higher memory bandwidth than NVIDIA's sub-50W GPUs
  • 640 Shader processors
  • 768 / 48 GFLOPS single / double precision peak (600e/4.5Gbps)
  • Supports DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.2, APP technology, OpenCL 1.2 and DirectCompute 11.1
  • Supports DP1.2, HDMI 1.4, Wireless Display, Stereo 3D
  • Windows 7, 8/8.1 and Linux Compatible
Surround Computing Era
Commenting on the new release Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Embedded Solutions said “The demand for rich, vibrant graphics and enhanced parallel compute capabilities in embedded systems is greater than ever before, and is expected to continue to grow as we enter the Surround Computing era. Legacy graphics no longer meet the needs of embedded solutions for today and tomorrow. With unprecedented performance-per-watt, the AMD E8860 GPU addresses the need to drive multi-displays, 3D and 4K content and GPGPU compute across small form factors, harsh environments and mission critical applications.”

Defence Solutions
AMD have outlined multiple uses for this new GPU, which include everything from Gaming and Digital Signage Systems through to Aerospace and Military use emphasizing its digital terrain mapping capabilities. A number of leading manufacturers including Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions, Quixant, SAPPHIRE, Tech Source Inc., TUL, WOLF Industrial Systems Inc will be producing hardware using this GPU before the end of March 2014.


AMD
AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) are a Processor Design and Manufacturing company, they are most well known for their ranges of Desktop PC Processors but also supply Mobile and Server Processors. The latter being primarily for cloud computing and virtualization environments. AMD devices are used everywhere from the smallest PC to state of the art Super Computers. Their purchase of ATI in 2006 has led to AMD developing CPU's that not only do normal processing functions but also graphics processing functions within a single chip.
