Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) has introduced its next-generation entry-level embedded graphics processor, the AMD Radeon E6460 discrete graphics processor. The Radeon E6460 complements the company's previously announced Radeon E6760.

With five years of planned supply availability and with the graphics memory included in the same package, the AMD Radeon E6460 GPU delivers the longevity, small footprint and ease of design demanded by embedded system designers, AMD said.

"With a footprint-compatible subset of the high-performance AMD E6760 GPU, the new AMD Radeon E6460 GPU enables broadly scalable graphics and multimedia performance in a single board design," said Richard Jaenicke, director of embedded client business for AMD.

The AMD Radeon E6460 GPU enables an immersive experience with desktop-level 3D graphics and multimedia features such as an advanced 3D graphics engine and programmable shader architecture that supports Microsoft DirectX 11 technology for superior graphics rendering.

The GPU's third generation unified video decoder enables dual HD decode of H.264, VC-1, MPEG4 and MPEG2 compressed video streams. Its 512MB GDDR5 frame buffer included in the BGA package provides high memory bandwidth while reducing the total footprint of the platform solution and the effort needed to design and maintain the system over time.

Targeted at casino gaming, digital signage, instrumentation and industrial control systems, the AMD Radeon E6460 GPU enables system designers to deliver products with a value-conscious mindset.

The GPU has one system design with multiple customer product categories. The BGA ballout of the AMD Radeon E6460 GPU is a subset of the higher performing AMD Radeon E6760 GPU enabling system designers to develop one system for both GPUs.

The AMD Radeon E6460 GPU features multidisplay support with AMD Eyefinity technology, and also supports up to four independent output displays2, HDMI 1.4 stereoscopic video and DisplayPort 1.2 for higher link speeds and simplified display connectivity.

AMD Radeon E6460 GPU can be paired with select models of AMD's next generation high-performance accelerated processing units (APU) to offer additional graphics capability and additional parallel computing power.
