The company claims an average 3 watts power consumption in typical application, and mention AMD G-series SoC has been designed to consume 33% less power than previous AMD G-Series (APUs). Most modules are destined to be used in the commercial temperature range, but those based on GX-209HD support industrial temperature range (40°C to +85°C). The Radeon GPU in G-Series SoC are compliant with DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.2 OpenCL 1.2, and a Universal Video Decoder 4.2 dedicated hardware can decode H.264, MPEG4, VC-1, MPEG-2 video streams. These modules target cost-sensitive applications in the control and automation industry, digital gaming, communications infrastructures, and graphics-rich devices such as thin clients, digital information boards and medical-imaging equipment.
