Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD) has announced upgrades for its Embedded G-Series LX SoC, and AMD Embedded G-Series SoCs to scale up their performance, power and price.
The company claims that the new upgrades will provide more options for customers while at the same time allowing developers to boost the X86 platforms beginning with the base level AMD Embedded G-Series LX SoC. The latter is also pin compatible with the second generation G-Series SoC devices.
The company also introduced two new third generation AMD Embedded G-Series SoCs also known as “Brown Falcon” and “Prairie Falcon.” The two processors feature pin compatibility for the G-Series processors that feature the higher performance AMD Embedded R-Series SoC.
The new processors build upon the low-powered award-winning AMD Embedded G-Series SoC platform, thus bringing price, power and performance options across the GPU and CPU multimedia as well as the I/O controller hardware. All these features allow the firm to lower development costs for customers. To sum up the features of the new G-Series processors, they are geared towards offering higher computing power including better graphics quality at more efficient power consumption levels. They are therefore applicable to different platforms from hardcore gaming to industrial control and heavy video processing.
AMD’s Enterprise Solutions vice president and general manager Scott Aylor described the products as the best offering from the company that aims to offer the best to embedded design engineers.
The company believes that the new processors will attract a wide range of customers including firms that manufacture smart TVs, IP set-top boxes, casinos, communication networks and industrial control among others. AMD is also yet to release the shipping and pricing details of its new offerings.
