    That's a writing mistake on my part (remnants of sentences I rephrased). It was supposed to be a "what you think is embedded stuff".

    Which does not really make me think it's really supposed to compete with true embedded stuff (that has whole-SoC power envelopes of like 5w), more with very small x86 stuff, that is still "embedded" in many products, although it's not the first thing most think about when they hear "embedded".

    MCM is "placing multiple silicon dies inside the same physical chip" (also with images) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-chip_module

    Which is probably interesting for OEMs that like asking semi-custom stuff, this is one of the areas AMD does sell decently in.

    There should be a survey, how many people actually believe in Atari.

    Atari are going to need to customize the MESA driver and squeeze all the power they can out of the GPU. At least it will be released well after AMD DC drivers are out so performance on their console might actually be quite good at 1080p. If they released it this year it would be a disaster, good thing they aren't...

    AMD announced a Polaris based embedded GPU a year ago, the elusive E9260. That too was available in MXM and PCIe variants, but not MCM.

    HBN2?

    basically the same as rx 550
