AMD’s High-performance ATI Radeon E2400 GPU Now Shipping

ATI Radeon E2400 GPU AMD has come out with the high-performance ATI Radeon E2400 GPU that has the ability to deliver the latest 2D, 3D and multimedia graphics performance. This graphic card is expected to be showcased at Embedded World 2008 in February this year in Germany, where embedded designers will get a chance to see it.

The ATI Radeon E2400 graphics processing unit is perfect for applications that demand speedy embedded graphics such as test and instrumentation, human machine interfaces like kiosks and ATMs, display walls, casino and arcade gaming.

AMD’s ATI Radeon E2400 GPU offers an exceptional level of performance and flexibility. Moreover, it is very compact.

Built on 65nm process technology, the ATI Radeon E2400 also includes AMD’s Unified Shader Architecture with support for Microsoft DirectX 10. This will allow embedded designers to develop advanced content for a number of applications.

The GPU on the whole incorporates 128MB of on-chip GDDR3 memory especially for graphic-intensive applications, eliminating space and cost of external memory designs.

And it doesn’t end here, because AMD also offers the ATI Radeon E2400 MXM-II module based on the open standard MXM-II specification for designs that require a low profile solution in space constrained environments.

According to Richard Jaenicke, Director of Embedded Graphics for AMD, “Embedded designers don’t have to be satisfied with the performance of low-end graphics devices just because their designs are space constrained or require extended availability and support. With the input of major original equipment manufacturers and platform developers, we have designed the ATI Radeon E2400 from the start to deliver high graphics performance while meeting the unique requirements of the embedded market.”

The ATI Radeon E2400 GPU is slated to begin shipping this month itself.
