The AMD Embedded R-Series SOC (formerly codenamed “Merlin Falcon”) delivers astonishing graphics and HD multimedia processing performance – with true 4K decode and encode – via a sophisticated SOC architecture that integrates up to four of AMD’s latest high-performance “Excavator” x86 CPU cores with the latest AMD Radeon™ graphics and an I/O controller all on a single die. Building on AMD’s established leadership in high-end graphics, the AMD Embedded R-Series SOC is the highest performance AMD embedded processor to-date, outperforming select competing processors by more than 50% when running industry-standard graphics benchmarks.1 For compute-intensive workloads and complex algorithm processing, the AMD Embedded R-Series SOC enables system designers to leverage the benefits of 1.0-compliant Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) technology to boost parallel processing performance to new heights. These performance attributes are complemented with dynamic power management capabilities and other key benefits, which, together, distinguish the AMD Embedded R-Series SOC as an ideal fit for the most exacting embedded applications, spanning electronic gaming machines, medical imaging, interactive digital signage, media storage, communications/networking, and beyond.
For more than 47 years, AMD has driven innovation in high-performance computing, graphics, and visualization technologies -- the building blocks for gaming, immersive platforms, and the datacenter. Hundreds of millions of consumers, leading Fortune 500 businesses, and cutting-edge scientific research facilities around the world rely on AMD technology daily to improve how they live, work, and play.
