The ATI Radeon is the first Integrated GPU in the world to support Dx 10.1 and OpenGL 3.0. The GPU has a memory of 512Mb running at 700 MHz GDDR3 and the memory interface is 128bit along with 320 shader processors. The GPU is built on the 55nm fabrication process and has inbuilt support for Display Port, and also supports Shader model v4.0 and UVD 2.0.
ATI Radeon E4690 when publically available will be the fastest ever Integrated GPU which nearly matches the performance of a discrete GPU. The ATI Radeon E4690 sets a new bar for embedded graphics performance. Blazingly fast graphics and HD video capabilities enhance the appeal of applications âˆ’ such as arcade, casino, digital signage and more. With the industry’s only embedded graphics chip that offers DirectX 10.1 and UVD 2.0 support, the ATI Radeon E4690 enables competitive advantages for AMD’s embedded customers,said Richard Jaenicke, director of integrated graphics at Advanced Micro Devices a.k.a AMD.
