Design for use in NAS devices, PoS devices and your friendly neighbourhood slot machine AMD's new R-series chips top out at a TDP of 35W for the 3.2GHz Boost Frequency quad core RE464X and dual core RE272X.  The dual core RE264X has a mere 17W TDP at a boost of 2.8GHz and all three models can be paired with a Radeon E6460 or E6760 GPU to support up to six independent displays.  AMD told DigiTimes these processors will provide 2.5 times the performance-per-dollar of an Intel Core-i3 though without benchmarks that cannot yet be confirmed.  They have not quite lowered the TDP enough to be considered for phones but are certainly poised right to take market share in some specific market segments if the price to performance expectations are met.

"The new options include quad-core and dual-core CPUs scaling from 2.2GHz to 3.2GHz with TDP ranging from 17-35W for applications that require high performance x86 compute such as network attached storage (NAS). To address high-end visual needs for applications like digital gaming and signage that require high-performance x86 compute coupled with discrete graphics, AMD is introducing a new discrete GPU promotional program that provides customers with both a CPU and discrete GPU for savings of up to 20%."

Hopefully there's enough power to enable real-time transcoding of 1080p video. I'd love that in my Synology NAS so I don't have to use my Mac Mini anymore for that purpose.
