It’s not just AMD’s notebook chips that are getting a refresh. The company also launched a new series of embedded chips aimed at low power machines such as thin clients, retail point-of-sales machines, industrial applications, or other environments where you might not need a traditional PC to do some computing.

The new AMD G-Series chips were formerly code-named Steppe Eagle and Crowned Eagle, and while they’re pin-compatible with earlier G-Series chips (making it easier for device makers to upgrade), they offer significant performance boosts, more performance-per-watt to help keep power consumption low, and enhanced security.
