Submission + - Cooler AMD APUs Target A/V-streaming Gadgets (

DeviceGuru writes: AMD has just added a pair of lower-power processors to the Embedded G-Series APU (accelerated processing unit) line that debuted earlier this year. The new single- and dual-core parts integrate 64-bit x86 CPU cores along with a DirectX 11-capable GPU (graphics processor unit) core on a single die, and offer total (CPU+GPU) power consumptions down to 5.5W. Given their fanless capabilities, you can expect to these new APUs to start popping up in A/V-streaming consumer devices such as the Boxee Box, Google TV boxes, Roku players, connected TVs, and Blu-ray players.
