The AMD M690 Chipset for Embedded Designs features the same goodies as its notebook-bound counterpart. However, AMD has added an extra DVO (Digital Video Out) port that can be used to add support for a secondary display. AMD says dual-head functionality makes the chipset ideal for embedded applications like thin clients, digital signage, and point-of sale systems that might need to drive more than one display. The chipset also supports "side-port" memory (memory dedicated to the integrated graphics core,) although AMD tells us embedded system designers won't be able to use both the extra DVO port and side-port memory.
