Performance & Features
Have a look at this youtube video to get an overview of the performace of the am3517 with the NEON coprocessor and the SGX 530 Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) included.
- The NEON coprocessor implements the Advanced SIMD media processing architecture. Single instruction, multiple data (SIMD), is a class of parallel computers with multiple processing elements that perform the same operation on multiple data simultaneously. E. g. NEON is used for video encoding.
- The SGX 530 Graphics Processing Unit includes the Universal Scalable Shader Engine (USSE™), with a feature set that exceeds the requirements of OpenGL 2.0 and Microsoft Shader Model 3, enabling 2D, 3D and general purpose (GP-GPU) processing in a single core. This GPU is not included in the AM3505.
