AMD has announced the latest iteration of its Ryzen Embedded processors, introducing the new V2000 lineup. This is a pretty major upgrade for the Ryzen Embedded family, bringing AMD's Zen 2 cores, and newer Radeon graphics to the table. The new processors use a 7nm process, instead of the 14nm process of Ryzen Embedded V1000, and they also feature up to eight cores and 16 threads, whereas the V1000 lineup was completely made up of quad-core models. In fact, even the lower-end models introduced today have at least six cores.
In more practical terms, AMD claims that the Ryzen Embedded V2000 processors can deliver up to two times the multi-threaded performance of its predecessors, 30% more single-threaded performance, and 40% better GPU performance. Additionally, the new processors support up to four 4K displays and support 4K 10-bit video decode and encode. This is despite having the same TDP range as their predecessors.
Here's a rundown of all the models launching today:
|Model||TDP||Cores/Threads||CPU Frequency (Boost)||Radeon Graphics Compute Units||Graphics Frequency||L2 Cache|
Ryzen Embedded processors are meant for small form factor PCs, such as NUCs, and you can't buy them directly from AMD, you'll need to look for board partners integrating them in their offerings. At launch, partners including ASRock Industrial, Advantech, and Sapphire (owner of SimplyNUC) are planning to release new mini PCs, motherboards, and other embedded products.
