DeviceGuru writes: AMD's long-anticipated competitor to Intel's popular Atom processor line has begun begun shipping to device makers. AMD's initial Embedded G-Series processor consumes less than 9W of power and crams dual 64-bit x86 CPU cores, an ATI Radeon GPU (graphics processing unit), system and DRAM controllers, PCI Express, and HD video interfaces onto a single piece of silicon in a package that occupies about half a square inch of board space. Is this the rumored 'Atom killer'? Unfortunately for AMD, the answer could only be 'yes' if parallel processing on GPUs catches on in a big way. But in that case, Intel won't be far behind.
