AMD has unveiled an embedded discrete graphics processor which it says is the first of its kind to offer the combination of OpenCL support, as well as support for six independent displays.

The AMD Radeon E6760 GPU was unveiled at this year's Embedded Systems Conference, Silicon Valley and, has been designed to enable an 'immersive experience with desktop level 3d graphics and multimedia features. These include an advanced 3d graphics engine and programmable shader architecture that supports Microsoft DirectX 11 technology; an integrated frame buffer and small footprint thermal solution for designers of casino gaming, arcade and medical imaging systems; and support for OpenCL, providing an industry standard interface for general purpose graphics processing unit applications such as ultrasound, radar and video surveillance. Richard Jaenicke, director of Embedded Client Business for AMD, said: "Embedded system designers faced with power and density constraints now have a solution that delivers the advanced 3d graphics and multimedia features they require in this performance driven market." The gpu can be paired with AMD's upcoming A-Series Accelerated Processing Units codenamed "Llano" to offer additional graphics capability and additional parallel computing power.
