AMD has announced the Embedded Radeon E9170 graphics processor, which is quite an interesting petite GPU.

Making this embedded GPU interesting is that it's Polaris powered. This Embedded Radeon E9170 will be available in a MCM package with integrated memory as well as in PCI-E and MXM formats for small form factor PCs. The E9170 package will be sub-40 Watts with 4GB video memory and up to 1.25 TFLOPS of compute power and can drive up to five 4K displays simultaneously while delivering up to 3x performance-per-Watt over previous embedded GPUs.

The E9170 will be available beginning this month while the MCM module will be released in November. AMD is advertising this embedded Radeon GPU as use-cases within thin clients, medical displays, digital signage, casino games, and industrial purposes.
