SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2013) - AMD (NYSE: AMD) today disclosed its roadmap for the fast-growing embedded computing market, as it becomes the first company to offer both ARM and x86 processor solutions for low-power and high-performance embedded compute designs. The new lineup includes two best-in-class x86 accelerated processing units (APUs) and central processing units (CPUs), a first look at a high-performance ARM system-on-chip (SoC) and a new family of discrete AMD Embedded Radeon™ graphics processing units (GPUs) expected to launch in 2014. These additions provide the embedded industry's engineering community with more choices to match their exact design needs, and are designed to offer improvements in performance-per-watt and performance-per-dollar. Together with the recent launch of the award-winning AMD Embedded G-Series SoC family that set a superior bar for performance-per-watt low-power multicore APUs, these latest additions to the embedded product roadmap further signify a strategic push by AMD to focus on the high-growth embedded market.

so, what would these be used for?
microservers and/or industrial equipment that could get by throwing menial calculations on the arm for lower power, then use the x86 cores when its needed?

Some of these embedded technologies will probably go to use in hospital equipment, and commercial design. There definitely is a huge market for these embedded techs.

I would love to play with these at my company... super small form factor w/ < 10W TDP... FANLESS BABY.

The G-series A4-5000 (Kabini - Jaguar cores) is already impressive compared to the R-series A10-4600 (Trinity - Bulldozer cores)... I benchmarked them clock for clock with near identical hardware (well, 1.4Ghz trinity vs 1.5ghz Kabini), and the results were great, and at a much lower total platform power consumption. You can PM me for details, I cannot post the whole results online though.

I'm not surprised that jaguar has very similar performance clock-for-clock as bulldozer/piledriver in many situations.
I've done a small test with cinebench single core:

FX 6100 @ 1.5 ghz | A4-5000m @ 1.5 ghz
0.38 | 0.39 (Anandtech test)

Maybe you can post some of your results so we can have clearer picture of INT and FP perf.

I did the whole Aida/Everest benchmark suite, as well as the full "cache and memory" benchmark. Again, I can't post the results, but here is a summary.

The only non-surprising benchmark was memcopy/read/latency, as the G-series is single-channel vs trinity dual channel.. both systems had CL11 4GB DDR3-1600 ram with all 4 cores enabled.

Some of the CPU benchmarks were +- 10%, AES was 50% faster. FPU on average 30% faster. (in favour of G)

OpenGL/OpenCL/Shader performance on the other hand... the trinity GPU will win, hands down... 8330 vs 7660G

This is the greatest resource of specifications in regards to AMD APUs... (I contribute to it as well).. I advise you to do the same smile.gif

Bobcat core was approximately half a bulldozer module
- 2 ALUs and 2 AGUs per core (ALUs handle majority of instructions)
- 2 64 bit MMX/FP pipes => bulldozers 2 128-bit FMACs (FP) and 2 MMX pipes

Now jaguar is theoretically equal or superior for FPU/SIMD vs. even steamroller

MMX:

Jaguar - 2 128-bit pipes per core
Steamroller - 1 128-bit pipe per core (FPU pipe 1 or MMX/FPSTO pipe)

FP:

Jaguar - 2 128-bit pipes per core (1 pipe is ADD other is MUL though)
Steamroller - 1 128-bit pipes per core

Jaguar+ or Enhanced Jaguar APU G-Series, named "Steppe Eagle" it will have a very important improvement in the form of "TurboCore" very likely 500MHz on a single CPU Core. wink.gif
