AMD unveils G-series embedded Jaguars

Written by Fudzilla staff

Promises ARM based embedded parts

AMD has announced five new embedded processors based on the new Jaguar core. The embedded SoCs feature two to four Jaguar cores and four of them sport HD 8000 graphics cores.

The GX-420CA is fastest of the lot and has a 25W TDP, four Jag cores clocked at 2.0GHz and Radeon HD 8400E graphics clocked at 600MHz. The GX415GA is a 1.5GHz quad-core clocked at 1.5GHz. It has Radeon HD 8330E graphics clocked at 500MHz. Two dual cores with 15W and 9W TDPs are also coming, as well as a 15W quad-core with no GPU. Prices range from $49 to $72.

However, perhaps the biggest bit of news has nothing to do with Jaguar. AMD is planning to introduce a range of ARM based embedded parts as well. The x86 SKUs cover TDPs ranging from 9W to 25W, while upcoming ARM parts should feature sub-3W TDPs.

This is not the first time AMD talked about ARM. It already said it will use new 64-bit ARM cores in some of its heterogeneous server chip designs, but this is the first time it talked about ARM embedded chips. We still don’t know whether AMD will try to enter the consumer ARM SoC market and we can only speculate, but it would be a rather interesting development.
