The first discrete graphics card based on Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture is designed specifically to advance the visual growth and parallel processing capabilities of embedded applications. With more than double the performance in the same power envelope as its predecessor, the AMD E8860 GPU delivers 3D and 4K graphics to embedded gaming machines, digital signage, medical imaging, commercial aerospace and conventional military, and other embedded applications. A 33 percent higher single precision floating point over the previous generation at 768 GFLOPS enables the AMD E8860 GPU to also blast through the most complex parallel applications like terrain and weather mapping, facial and gesture recognition, and biometric and DNA analysis.

The GPU, designed in multi-chip module packaging, comes with a seven-year longevity supply guarantee and is available as a mobile PCI Express module (MXM) and PCI Express add-in-board. It drives multiple independent displays with support for AMD Eyefinity Technology, and supports DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.2 and OpenCL 1.2 with support for Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Embedded 7 Standard, Windows 8/8.1, Windows Embedded 8 Standard, Linux and real-time and safety-critical operating systems supported by CoreAVI’s suite of embedded software drivers.

Additional features include 2 Gbyte of GDDR5 frame buffer, advanced GPGPU capabilities for parallel processing with up to 61 percent higher performance-per-watt than competing sub-50W category of discrete GPUs. The GPU incorporates 640 shader processors, AMD APP technology, OpenCL 1.2 and DirectCompute 11.1.

It is capable of 768 / 48 GFLOPS single / double precision peak (600e/4.5 Gbit/s), which amounts to improved performance with 92 percent higher 3D graphics performance-per-watt then the previous generation. The advanced platform power management results in 37W TDP.

AMD E8860 GPU-based solutions for digital signage, conventional military and commercial aerospace, medical imaging and embedded gaming machines will be available from Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions, Quixant, Sapphire, Tech Source Inc., TUL, WOLF Industrial Systems Inc. and other leading board manufacturers and solution providers beginning in Q1 2014.
