DigiTimes spotted that AMD's new Temash and Richland APUs feature support for eyeSight's gesture control technology:
"Gesture recognition is becoming an important feature to be included in digital devices, the integration of our solution into AMD's APUs brings this game-changing technology to the masses," said eyeSight CEO Gideon Shmuel in a statement.

By running the video processing algorithms on the upcoming APUs, eyeSight was able to reach remarkably low CPU consumption compared to running on traditional X86 CPUs, the gesture recognition technology company noted. In some cases, the processing time has even been reduced by a factor of 20x, allowing eyeSight to introduce additional code and significantly increase recognition accuracy, the firm said.
