Breathtaking Graphics and Multidisplay Immersion

2nd Generation AMD Embedded R-Series APUs enable stunningly crisp 3D, 4K, and HD video content and offer support for up to four independent displays (4096 x 2160 resolution per display output). The AMD Dual Graphics1 configuration allows you to combine the power of the 2nd Generation AMD R-Series APU with an AMD Embedded Radeon™ E8860 discrete GPU to provide up to 64% more 3D graphics performance than a standalone 2nd Generation AMD R-Series APU.2 AMD Eyefinity technology allows the AMD R-Series APUs to drive multiple displays simultaneously as a single large surface.3

Sky High Performance at Low Power

2nd Generation AMD R-Series APUs deliver up to 66% more compute performance4 and up to 55% more 3D graphics performance than previous generation AMD Embedded R-Series APUs.5 Compared to Intel Haswell Core-i CPUs with 35W or lower thermal design power (TDP), the new AMD R-Series APUs provide up to 46% more compute performance6 , and up to 44% more 3D graphics performance.7

Additional Key Benefits

  • Available in dual-core and quad-core “Steamroller” CPU configurations with up to 4 MBytes of shared L2 cache. 
  • Includes support for DirectX® 11.1, OpenGL 4.2, and AMD’s Mantle for the latest game development advancements. Offers dual-channel DDR3 support and error-correction code (ECC) memory support for high integrity applications. 
  • Features a new audio coprocessor that enables low-latency audio signal processing for crisper sound and audio effects. 
  • Enables hardware accelerated video encode and decode using Unified Video Decode (UVD) 4.2 and Video Compression Engine (VCE) 2.0.

Footnotes
  1. AMD Dual Graphics technology combines the 3D graphics rendering resources of the APU’s discrete-class graphics processor with the discrete graphics processor to accelerate the Microsoft® Direct3D function for software applications using Microsoft DirectX® 10 or DirectX 11 technology. 
  2. The AMD RX-427BB scored 2,051, and the AMD Radeon™ E8860 paired with RX-427BB at dual-graphics mode scored 3,359 when running 3DMark®11P benchmark. The AMD Bald Eagle RX-427BB used an AMD Ballina motherboard with 8GB DDR3 SO-DIMM memory and 256GB SanDisk HDD. The AMD Radeon E8860 used an AMD DB-FS1r2 motherboard with 8GB DDR3 memory, 64GB Crucial M4 HDD, and RX-427BB. The system ran Windows® 7 Ultimate. EMB-97 
  3. AMD Eyefinity technology works with applications that support non-standard aspect ratios, which is required for panning across multiple displays. AMD Eyefinity technology can support up to 4 displays using a single enabled AMD R-Series APU or up to 6 displays using a single enabled AMD graphics card with Windows Vista or Windows 7 operating systems – the number and type of displays may vary by board design. Some implementations may require DisplayPort 1.2 multi-streaming technologies with compatible monitors and/or hubs. SLS (“Single Large Surface”) functionality requires an identical display resolution on all configured displays.
  4. The AMD RX-427BB scored 76.5 and AMD R-Series 464L scored 46.1, when running BasemarkCL 1.0 benchmark. The performance delta of 66% was calculated based on RX-427BB’s performance score of 76 and R-464L’s performance score of 46. The AMD Bald Eagle RX-427BB used an AMD Ballina motherboard with 8GB DDR3 SO-DIMM memory and 256GB SanDisk HDD. The R-464L used an AMD DB-FS1r2 development board with 8GB DDR3 memory and 160GB Hitachi HDD. Both systems ran Windows® 7 Ultimate. EMB-95 
  5. The AMD RX-427BB scored 2051 and AMD R-Series 464L scored 1326, when running 3DMark® 11P benchmark. The performance delta of 55% was calculated based on RX-427BB’s performance score of 2051 and R-464L’s performance score of 1326. The AMD Bald Eagle RX-427BB used an AMD Ballina motherboard with 8GB DDR3 SO-DIMM memory and 256GB SanDisk HDD. The R-464L used an AMD DB-FS1r2 development board with 8GB DDR3 memory and 160GB Hitachi HDD. Both systems ran Windows® 7 Ultimate. EMB-91
