Ryzen Embedded V2000 Processors have up to eight CPU cores
The latest processors offered by AMD, the Ryzen Embedded V2000 series, deliver double the cores, up to two times performance/W and an estimated 15 per cent IPC uplift, compared with the previous generation, says the company.
The high performance Embedded processor family is built on 7nm process technology, Zen 2 cores and high-performance AMD Radeon graphics. It is designed to deliver power efficiency and enterprise-class security features for embedded designs, such as thin client, MiniPC and edge systems.
It is equipped with up to eight CPU cores and seven GPU compute units, which means that a single AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 series processor provides 2×4 the multi-threaded performance/W, up to 30 per cent better single-thread CPU performance and up to 40 per cent better graphics performance, compared with the previous generation. For high performance display capabilities, the Ryzen Embedded V2000 series can power up to four independent displays in 4K resolution.
AMD is continuing its 10-year planned availability as with its other Ryzen Embedded processors.
Security features, helping to defend against unauthorised access to memory or critical software, includes AMD Memory Guard and secure boot. Another feature, secure memory encryption helps prevent an attacker from accessing the data, as well as mitigating cold boot attacks.
There is also support for rich multimedia capabilities, with an ecosystem that includes key customers and partners. Initial launch partners include Advantech, ASRock Industrial, iBase and Sapphire.
There are four models in the AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 Series, operating at 1.5GHZ (V2546 and V2516) and 1.6GHz (V2748 and V2718).
AMD was founded in 1969 as a Silicon Valley start-up. It began with dozens of employees focused on leading-edge semiconductor products. Today it is a global company with a vision for high performance computing to transform lives.
AMD has achieved many important industry firsts and today develops high-performance computing and visualisation products to solve some of the world’s toughest and most interesting challenges.
AMD believes: “There has never been a better time to be in the semiconductor industry, and we are ready to tackle the next 50 years with high-performance computing and graphics solutions that transform all of our lives“.
