AMD has launched its Ryzen Embedded R2000 Series processors, designed for use in entry-level devices. With the new generation, the number of CPU cores is doubled. In addition, the number of GPU computing units is up to eight, providing performance increases of up to 81% compared to the previous generation.
The chip designer planned to use these mid-range SoCs in “industrial and robotic systems, artificial vision, IoT and thin client equipment.” But existing Embedded chips, introduced in 2019, have spread from Atari consoles to mini PCs and SBCs (single board computers).
The second generation Ryzen Embedded R2000 Series offers up to four cores and up to eight threads, doubling the maximum CPU core count. In addition, the graphics performance has increased by up to 81% according to the company’s own tests. In the past the number of Vega Processing Units (CUs) was up to three, now it is up to 8 CUs.
One of the most important advantages of the Ryzen Embedded R2000 platform is its multimedia features. SoCs also support operating system like Windows 11, Windows 10 and Linux Ubuntu LTS. Additionally, the number of PCIe Gen 3 lanes has doubled to 16.
AMD is switching from Zen to Zen+ CPU cores with its new series. CPU clock speeds have increased, while TDPs have remained stable in the 12-25W range. The red team will continue to work with partners such as Advantech, DFI and Sapphire who have used the R1000 series in the past. Additionally, we expect SoCs to reach more portable devices, along with enhanced graphics.
