AMD introduces new G-series embedded APUs

Written by Fudzilla staff


TDPs starting at just 5.5 watts
AMD has launched two new embedded G-series APUs, with impressive 5.5W and 6.4W TDPs. The processors have a 39 percent lower energy footprint than their predecessors and they are based on the Bobcat core.

The T40E is a dual-core clocked at 1GHz, with 1MB of L2 cache and HD 6250 graphics. It supports LVDDR3-1066 memory and has a 6.4W TDP. It loosely resembles a low-power variant of the C-50 APU used in Acer’s Iconia W500 tablet.

The T40R is a single core 1GHz part, with a 5.5W TDP. The graphics and memory controller are the same as in the dual-core T40E.

Thanks to the low TDPs, the new processors can be used without active cooling. Interestingly, Axiomtek has introduced a Pico-ITX motherboard based on T40 parts, which is quite impressive for a dual-core processor with DX11 capable graphics.
