AMD debuts ultra-low power chip

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has announced a new SoC system that comes with maximum TDP of just 6 watts. The new chip will be used in various electronic devices that require low power consumption.

The chip is known as GX-210JA and belongs to the company’s G-line of ultra-low power processors. Inside the GX-210JA features two x86-compatible computational cores at 1 GHz, a built-in Radeon HD 8180 GPU that works at 225 MHz, a built-in memory controller with support for ECC memory and I/O hardware. The chip is capable of functioning at extreme environmental temperatures that span from -40°C to +85°C and does not require active cooling. Furthermore its TDP when working on simple tasks is just 3 watts!

“The advance of APU processor design, the Surround Computing era, and The Internet of Things has created the demand for embedded devices that are low power but also offer excellent compute and graphics performance,” said Arun Iyengar, vice president and general manager, AMD Embedded Systems. “AMD Embedded G-Series SOC products offer unparalleled compute, graphics and I/O integration, resulting in fewer board components, low-power use, and reduced complexity and overhead cost. The new GX-210JA operates at an average of approximately 3 watts, enabling a new generation of fanless designs for content-rich, multimedia and traditional workload processing.”

The GX-210JA is the sixth member of AMD’s G-line. Earlier the US chip company unveiled five SoC chips of the same product line that feature two or four computational cores and TDP that ranges from 9 watts to 25 watts.

The pricing of the new chip is unknown.
