AMD unveils Radeon E4690 MXM graphics for embedded market

You might recall that ATI Radeon E4690 GPU that we talked about in June of 2009. The little GPU was aimed at the embedded market and supports hardware acceleration for HD video. Today ATI has announced a new addition to the E4690 family called the E4690 MXM.

The new E4690 MXM is a PCI Express module designed to be used in graphics intensive embedded markets. The new GPU uses the MXM 3.0 specification with reduced power needs, improved cooling, and a lower z-height than its predecessors. These features allow the designers of embedded systems to design smaller machines and speed time to market.

The GPU has triple the 3D graphics performance of previously available solutions according to ATI. The GPU is designed for embedded applications like digital signage, image recognition, signal processing, surveillance, arcade games, and casino games. The device has 512MB of on-board GDDR3 RAM, 320 shader processors, and adjustable system clocks. It supports UVD 2 and DirectX 10.1.
