AMD today announced immediate availability of the new AMD Embedded G-Series processor, the world's first and only Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) for embedded systems. The AMD Embedded G-Series, based on AMD Fusion technology, delivers a complete, full-featured embedded platform and incorporates the new low-power, x86 CPU based on the "Bobcat" core with a world-class DirectX 11-capable GPU and parallel processing engine on a single piece of silicon.

I'm desperately waiting for 28nm Bobcat CPU with say 4 cores, 2-2.4GHz speed and 160-240 shader GPU....

These are embedded parts. If you want regular consumer parts, Brazos is the same thing. These are typically going into commercial platforms for embedded applications.

It competes in the embedded space with other embedded processors like atom, arm via and proprietary solutions.

AMD server guys should take this a step further and release an Opteron based on this die, for NAS servers, home servers, and embedded devices. I'm talking about branded devices, such as QNAP NAS, HP home servers, etc.

This IS an embedded processor based on that die. You will see these in NAS products and embedded devices. Not sure if we are in any home servers, those tend to be too "consumerish" for embedded parts.

The server and embedded products all roll up to the same organization.

Why a fan at 18W, one case fan is enough to move air, or at least the cost of a increased size heatsink instead of a fan.

That market is not about benchmarks. It's about cost, size, board size, power/heat and the level of component integration.

In those areas we rock.
If the performance of this would be less than an old single core Atom and the GPU worse then intel's 945 GMA, There would be no real point to this now would there? Performance does matter a little at least.

The AMD Fusion thing looks promising, hopefully we'll see it with this, hope you blow our socks off AMD ;) I desperately wanted an AMD netbook or 11~12" laptop, but nothing had the battery life I wanted and ran too hot. Once fusion gets into netbooks or ultra-portables, I'm jumping on them for sure.

Now I am anxious to know any specifics about this. :p

Passive cooling should be an option. Maybe the fan is a just in case they want to fit it in something small with no or almost no airflow?

Pre-release numbers seem to suggest the CPU portion blows Atom out of the water. In heavy CPU task at the same TDP and power consumption, nothing came close. I can't say for sure, but this is why Intel and Nvidia decided to put their boxing gloves away for now; so they can work together "so to speak" on a single chip solution to compete here quickly.

Passive cooling is not only possible, but we have already seen an ITX mobo with this chip and a passive heatsink. I guess you have not been on TPU for the last few days. You idea for a netbook around that size with this chip is very very likely.

Here are some links to give you an idea of what to expect as far as products for this chip:

How about against intel's ULVs? Would it beat an SU2300?

That is why this is such a great product. If you are building a digital signage solution, for example, you have a single APU vs. a CPU and a discrete card in a slot. Lower power, no card in a socket (better reliability), smaller form factor, lower cost - everything that you would want.

Looking at current AMD roadmaps, that's coming somewhere in 2012.
The GPU probably won't have those many shader ALUs, but it will use vec4 shaders and thus become a bit faster even if they maintain the shader amount.

And atom does not have a DX-11 GPU in it. That is where we are getting all of the design wins - people are seeing that atom does not have the features that they need
