E8860 is first embedded GPU to be designed on GCN architecture

AMD announces new Radeon E8860 embedded GPU

AMD has announced the first embedded GPU to run on its GCN architecture – the E8860.

The E8860 is said to provide up to double the graphics performance of the E6760 GPU, alongside support for DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.2 and OpenCL 1.2.

The GPU supports up to five 3840×2160 30Hz displays, as well as AMD’s Eyefinity technology to spread a HD display across multiple screens.

Alternatively, one 4096×2160 60Hz display over HDMI or DP1.2 can be output.

The card features 2GB of GDDR5 frame buffer and a clock speed of 625MHz.

Based on a thermal design power of 37 watts, the E8860 is said to provide up to 92 per cent higher graphics performance per watt than the E6760 GPU – or 61 per cent higher performance than “power-comparable Nvidia GeForce GPUs”, claims AMD.

The GPU also has a PCIe 3.0 interface.

When paired with the AMD R-464L APU, the E8860’s performance in benchmarking utility 3DMark-11 is listed as P2689.

Further details regarding price and availability are yet to be released.
