The latest E9170 embedded GPUs target thin IoT devices and the smart applications market. Based on the Polaris architecture, and matching the desktop Radeon RX 550 specs, the E9170 GPU will come in MCM, MXM and PCIe form-factors, with support for up to five 4K displays.

AMD’s embedded GPU family will soon be expanded with the addition of the new Radeon E9170 models. These are designed for markets such as digital signage, casino electronic games, medical imaging, and industrial or military/aerospace applications.

The E9170 chips will be available in MCM, MXM and PCIe form-factors. Based on AMD’s Polaris architecture, the new embedded GPUs match the desktop RX 550 variant in terms of specs. AMD intends to market these GPUs for the power-efficient sector, while last year’s E9260 and E9550 models were released for the performance sector. Main features include:
•    512 stream processors (8 CU)
•    1124/1219 MHz base clock
•    64/128-bit memory bus width
•    2/4 GB GDDR5 6 Gbps VRAM
•    support for up to five 4K displays
•    HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 connectors
•    4K HEVC/H.265 decoding and encoding

There will be 5 variants that differ in form-factor, power consumption, display outputs, video memory size and cooling solutions. The MXM and PCIe form-factor variants will be released this month, whereas the MCM variant is planned for a November release.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
