AMD announced today their newest entry level discrete graphics processor: the Radeon E6460. This new processor brings support for up to 4 monitors as well as almost double the 3D processing power of the E2400 GPU. Richard Jaenicke, director of Embedded Client Business for AMD, said, "The AMD Radeon E6460 GPU provides the high value, small footprint, and long supply demanded by embedded customers. 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." Highlights from the press release follow:

  • An advanced 3D graphics engine and programmable shader architecture supports Microsoft DirectX® 11 technology for superior graphics rendering.
  • The third generation unified video decoder enables dual HD decode of H.264, VC-1, MPEG4 and MPEG2 compressed video streams.
  • The 512 MB 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 value-conscious mindset.
  • One system design, 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.
  • Featuring multi-display support with AMD Eyefinity technology, the AMD Radeon E6460 GPU supports up to four independent output displays2, HDMI 1.4 stereoscopic video and DisplayPort 1.2 for higher link speeds and simplified display connectivity.
  • The AMD Radeon E6460 GPU comes with five years of planned supply availability. Technical support is provided by a dedicated team of application engineering experts.
  • 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.
