New AMD Processors Drive High-Performance Computing for Embedded Industry

  AMD Ryzen꽓 Embedded Pro짯ces짯sors add low-power opti짯ons for designs of 10W or less 

 New plat짯forms from cus짯to짯mers expand use of AMD Embedded Pro짯ces짯sors 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)   AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ짯ced the expan짯si짯on of the AMD Ryzen꽓 Embedded eco짯sys짯tem with two new AMD Ryzen꽓 Embedded R1000 low-power pro짯ces짯sors that pro짯vi짯de cus짯to짯mers with a new TDP ran짯ge of 6 up to 10 watts. AMD also announ짯ced new cus짯to짯mers offe짯ring Mini PCs based on the AMD Ryzen Embedded pro짯ces짯sors from Sap짯phi짯re, SECO, Sim짯ply NUC and others.

AMD is ushe짯ring in a new age of high-per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting for the embedded indus짯try, said Raj짯nee짯sh Gaur, cor짯po짯ra짯te vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Embedded Solu짯ti짯ons, AMD. 쏻e are doing this with cut짯ting-edge tech짯no짯lo짯gy to dis짯play immersi짯ve gra짯phics in 4K reso짯lu짯ti짯on with AMD Ryzen Embedded pro짯ces짯sors, and we are now offe짯ring access to high per짯for짯mance in power-effi짯ci짯ent solu짯ti짯ons with the짯se new low-power Ryzen Embedded R1000 processors.

New AMD Ryzen Embedded Processors
In April 2019, AMD laun짯ched an expan짯si짯on to the Ryzen Embedded pro짯ces짯sor lin짯e짯up with the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC. Built on 쏾en CPU and Rade짯on꽓 쏺ega gra짯phics cores, the Ryzen Embedded R1000 pro짯ces짯sor deli짯vers 3X bet짯ter CPU per짯for짯mance per watt1 com짯pared to the pre짯vious gene짯ra짯ti짯on AMD R몊eries Embedded pro짯ces짯sor, and 4X bet짯ter CPU and gra짯phics per짯for짯mance per dol짯lar than the com짯pe짯ti짯ti짯on2.

The AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 fami짯ly now includes two new pro짯ces짯sors desi짯gned for effi짯ci짯ent power enve짯lo짯pes, the Ryzen꽓 Embedded R1102G and R1305G pro짯ces짯sors. The new pro짯ces짯sors sca짯le from 6 up to 10 watts of TDP respec짯tively, while also giving cus짯to짯mers the abili짯ty to redu짯ce sys짯tem cos짯ts with less memo짯ry DIMMS and lower power requi짯re짯ments. With this low power enve짯lo짯pe, the짯se embedded pro짯ces짯sors give cus짯to짯mers the abili짯ty to crea짯te fan짯less sys짯tems, ope짯ning new mar짯kets that can levera짯ge the high-per짯for짯mance Ryzen Embedded pro짯ces짯sors. The짯se two new pro짯ces짯sors are expec짯ted to be available for order at the end of March.

Cus짯to짯mers adop짯ting the Ryzen Embedded R1102G and R1305G include Kon짯tron with a sca짯lable mini-ITX plat짯form and Sim짯ply NUC with a new mini PC unit cal짯led Red Oak, which offers afforda짯ble main짯stream per짯for짯mance solu짯ti짯ons with a cost opti짯mi짯zed fea짯ture set to its lin짯e짯up of Ryzen Embedded based Mini PCs.

A Gro짯wing Ryzen Embedded Mini PC Ecosystem
In Decem짯ber 2019, AMD, along with OEM part짯ners, announ짯ced that it was enab짯ling an open eco짯sys짯tem for AMD Ryzen Embedded based Mini PCs, sup짯port짯ing indus짯tries inclu짯ding display/signage, enter짯pri짯se and indus짯tri짯al com짯pu짯ting. That list is expan짯ding to include:

  • Sapphire셲 new 4x4 plat짯forms based on AMD Ryzen Embedded Pro짯ces짯sors: the BP-FP5 and NP-FP5 embedded boards,
  • Sim짯ply NUC with the new Post Oak and Red Oak Mini PCs, based on the Ryzen Embedded R1000 and V1000 processors,
  • SECO and its AMD Ryzen Embedded Pro짯ces짯sor based Mini PC KIT, the UDOO BOLT GEAR, that can dri짯ve up to 4 screens in 4K reso짯lu짯ti짯on at 60fps at the same time.

As well, OnLo짯gic announ짯ced the avai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty of pre짯vious짯ly announ짯ced Mini PCs based on AMD Ryzen Embedded processors.
