    Eurocom Corporation, the leading mobile technology developer launches the AMD HD 6970M MXM 3.0b graphics module for embedded systems. The AMD HD 6970M graphics module is ideal for Eurocom embedded customers that require the absolute best in terms of graphical performance and processing. The module is also ideal for hardware designers developing small form factor PCs, embedded workstations and notebooks.

    The industry standard MXM 3.0 specification for graphics subsystems allows for improved cooling capability, reduced power and height, enabling engineers to create smaller, more efficient embedded systems, reduce development time and costs and introduce new designs faster to market.

    The HD 6970M graphics card is currently the highest performing card for embedded designs. Making it ideal for applications that require the highest possible graphics processing available, such as satellite imaging, mapping, surveillance, medical imaging, digital signage, image recognition, robotics, small form-factor computers, and notebook designs.

    The graphics processor unit also supports 3D stereoscopic and BD-3D technologies with hardware MVC decode support. With the addition of the new security processor feature, DRM support can be off loaded from the CPU to GPU.

    HD 6970M supports DX 11 with Shader Model 5.0, PCI E Revision 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2, and integrated HDMI 1.4a technologies. The unified Video Decoder 3 enables support for dual stream decode of high definition contents, along with the decode support of H.264 and VC-1, and entropy decode support of MPEG-2 HD and MPEG-4 part 2 (DivX and xVid).

    Nice!

    I wouldn't be surprised to see at least one of these make it into my work. We also have at least one smeg'ead that wants the latest & greatest in a notebook.

    960 shaders in case anyone was wondering. It seems to be based on the 68xx series.

    It is just a Barts HD6850 downclocked.

    I can only assume from the way the report is written that the GTX485m is not available in embedded systems.

    The actual TDP will be higher as AMD only quote the TDP for the GPU itself and not the module (unlike Nvidia who quote the entire module).

    Given the relative performance though ~75-100w is very good.

    How's a 70-80W/h battery supposed to power that?

    One hour at a time :)

    Seriously though, for heavy gaming you'd probably need a plug nearby. Hopefully, the idle 2D and video playback draw is more like 15 -20w

    lol nice, laptops with this caliber of graphics card arent meant for gaming away from a power socket, more like an ultra portable gaming rig.

    Wow, my whole laptop takes 75w. :eek:

    However, this card probably kicks ass in those "mobile servers" that weigh >10 lbs. :rockout:

    How does this device compare to a desktop card? What desktop card would it be equivalent to in terms of performance? Any benchmarks? Anand only compares it with other laptop mobile cards... but I'd like to know what kind of desktop card it can square up to.

    In mobile graphic card market, you always take one class lower and minus some.

    So, since this one's called 6970m, you gotta take one class lower to compare it with desktop.

    So, 6870. Then I did say "minus some", so it should be a little slower than desktop 6850.

    Which is pretty awesome for a laptop. Definitely agree with the ultra-portable gaming rig instead of an actual mobile device. That thing is going to drain battery like a hot knife through butter.

    And then we'll see more recalled batteries as the li-ion cells burst into flames from overcurrent? :laugh:

    Seriously, though; I'd love to get my hands on a laptop with one of these in it. Sadly I'll have to make due with my desktop for any gaming use. "Gaming" laptops are just prohibitively expensive :(

    The GPU goes into powerplay mode when you're on battery so hopefully o burnt lap tops ;)
