MSC announced support for the new low-power AMD G-T16R with AMD Radeon HD6250 APU for cost-sensitive applications on its Qseven module MSC Q7-A50M. Samples of the MSC Q7-A50M are available featuring the AMD G-T16R (single core, 615MHz), G-T40E (dual core, 1GHz) and G-T40R (single core, 1GHz). The module version using the AMD G-T16R APU comes at a particularly economic price despite the sizeable computing performance and excellent graphics capability available from the integrated AMD Radeon HD6250 Graphics Processing Unit. This newly-introduced processor version is targeting price-sensitive applications not requiring Gigahertz CPUs but still leaning on fast and high-resolution graphics.
The AMD Embedded G-Series APUs combine a low-power CPU and a discrete-level GPU in a single processor chip. The APUs used on the MSC module feature very low power dissipation allowing fanless system designs and highly integrated solutions. All three versions come with the built-in AMD Radeon HD6250 GPU which delivers very high graphics performance and supports OpenGL 4.0, DirectX 11 and OpenCL 1.1. Single or dual independent high-resolution displays can be connected via HDMI/DVI, DisplayPort 1.1a and dual-channel LVDS and may reach up to Full-HD resolution. Equipped with the AMD Embedded A50M Controller Hub, the module features four PCI Express x1 lanes, two high-speed SATA-II interfaces, eight USB 2.0 host ports, LPC, High-Definition Audio (HDA) and a GBit Ethernet interface. Some module versions provide a SATA-connected Flash Disk (e.g. 8GB) usable as system boot device.
