Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has launched a AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 Series processor — built on the innovative 7nm process technology – targeting OEMs of embedded applications such as Thin Client, MiniPC and Edge systems.
“We continue the 10-year planned availability as with our other Ryzen Embedded processors and look forward to seeing partners and customers utilizing fast processing speeds, integrated graphics and outstanding power efficiency of the Ryzen Embedded V2000 processor for years to come,” said Rajneesh Gaur, corporate VP and GM Embedded Business, AMD.
Equipped with up to eight CPU cores and seven GPU compute units, a single AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 Series processor provides 2x the multi-threaded performance-per-watt, up to 30 per cent better single-thread CPU performance and up to 40 per cent better graphics performance over the previous generation.
For customers and applications that need high-performance display capabilities, the Ryzen Embedded V2000 series can power up to four independent displays in 4K resolution.
Similar to the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 Series, the AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 will support AMD Memory Guard, a suite of security features including Secure Boot and Secure Memory Encryption, in which stored memory is encrypted to help prevent an attacker from accessing the data, as well as helps to mitigate cold boot attacks.
AMD Ryzen Embedded processor ecosystem includes key customers and partners who rely on the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 Series processors. Initial launch partners of the AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 series include Advantech, ASRock Industrial, iBase and Sapphire.
ASRock Industrial is adding support for the new V2000 Series to its Mini PC lineup.
“With the launch of the AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 Series, we are looking forward to implementing the new enhanced performance and security capabilities into our family of 4×4 products,” said James Lee, president of ASRock Industrial.
Advantech is supporting the new V2000 Series in its Mini-ITX and COM Express solutions by Embedded IoT Group.
“The planned longevity with CPU and GPU integration of the V2000 Series from AMD will help us continue to offer leading performance to the embedded market,” said Rex Lee, director at Advantech.
Sapphire is utilizing the AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 Series to target the Mini PC and other segments.
“The V2000 series sets a new standard for embedded designs and allows us to offer the performance to support four independent displays in 4 resolution, while maintaining a secure host connection,” said Paul Smith, senior director of Business Development for Embedded Products at Sapphire.
