Quixant, supplier of PC-based gaming platform and display solutions, have introduced a portfolio of products which bring AMD’s Ryzen Embedded APU technology to the global gaming market for the first time.
Combining a multi-core, multi-threaded CPU and a console-level GPU “capable of driving up to four 4K screens in a single chip”, the company has selected the new Ryzen Embedded APUs as the heart of three new products: the Quixant X, QMax-2 and QXi-7000.
The Quixant X aims to drive the most demanding games by combining the Ryzen Embedded APU with the Radeon E9550.
Its second offering, the QMax-2, provides an “ultra-high performance backplane-compatible solution” which also incorporates the Ryzen Embedded APU, with an optional discrete GPU to boost the integrated graphics.
The final product in the new portfolio is the QXi-7000.
Described as an “all-in-one solution” capable of driving up to four 4K screens, it utilises the firm’s patented fanless enclosure technology to enable passive cooling and claims to operate “without compromising on performance from the Ryzen Embedded APU”.
“The launch of these new products based on AMD’s latest Ryzen Embedded processors represents a milestone in Quixant’s technology roadmap, not to mention that of gaming as a whole,” said Jon Jayal, chief operating officer of Quixant.
“Thanks to our strong partnership with AMD, we are proud to be bringing our purpose-built Zen-based gaming platforms to the gaming market on the same day as AMD launch their chips. This maximises customer production lifetime, and enables our customers to leverage the latest chip technology today. We are excited to share the huge benefits of this cutting-edge technology with our customers.”
