Ryzen Embedded R2000 has 2x cores for IoT, says AMD

Equipped with up to two times as many cores as the previous generation of Ryzen Embedded SoC processors, the Ryzen Embedded R2000 series targets industrial and robotics systems, machine vision, the IoT and thin client equipment, said AMD.

The R2514, for example has up to 81 per cent higher CPU and graphics performance than the comparable R1000 series processor, confirmed AMD. Performance-per-watt efficiency is also optimised using Zen+ core architecture with AMD Radeon graphics for multimedia capabilities. Ryzen Embedded R2000 processors can power up to four independent displays in 4K resolution.

Embedded R2000 Series processors are scalable up to four Zen+ CPU cores with eight threads, 2Mbyte of L2 cache and 4Mbyte of shared L3 cache, allowing embedded system designers can scale performance and power efficiencies with a single processing platform, said the company. The Ryzen Embedded R2000 also supports up to 3200Mtransfer per second DDR4 dual channel memory and expanded I/O connectivity, to deliver 33 per cent higher memory bandwidth and up to two times greater I/O connectivity compared to R1000 series processors. 

The series is suitable for industrial applications like robotics and machine vision as well as thin clients and mini-PCs, which require performance, optimised power and graphics, commented the company. 

They can power up to four independent displays in 4K resolution leveraging DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b or eDP 1.3 interfaces. They also feature peripherals and interfaces with up to 16 lanes of PCIe Gen3, two SATA 3.0 and six USB ports (USB 3.2 Gen2 and 2.0).

OS support includes Microsoft Windows 11/10, and Linux Ubuntu LTS.

 The series consists of the R2324 and R2312 SoC processors which are in production now and the R2544 andR2541 which are expected to be available in October 2022. Planned product availability extends up to 10 years, providing customers with a long-lifecycle support roadmap
