AMD embedded processor targets storage and networking

New Products |
By Nick Flaherty


AMD has launched its V3000 series of embedded x86 processors, aiming at always-on storage and networking applications where power consumption is key.

The Ryzen Embedded V3000 Series uses the Zen 3 core to boost the CPU performance, DRAM memory transfer rates, core counts and I/O over the Embedded V1000 series and comes with 10 years of support.

The V3000 series has four-, six- and eight-core configurations with a thermal design power (TDP) from 10W to 54W and PCI Express 4.0 for storage and networking systems. This enables a single board design for a wide range of system configurations around ball grid array (BGA) packaging and a wiser temperature range, rather than the sockets used in consumer designs.

“We designed AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processors for customers seeking a balance of high-performance and power-efficiency for a wide range of applications in a compact BGA package,” said Rajneesh Gaur, corporate vice president and general manager, Embedded Solutions Group, AMD. “AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processors deliver a robust suite of features with advanced benefits required for superior workload performance in enterprise and cloud storage and networking products.”

“Storage and networking require a different balance of data processing performance, data movement, power management and thermal management than traditional compute. Processors for storage and networking require compute, memory and I/O capabilities balanced for rack space utilization, power efficiency and low heat dissipation in space-constrained environments,” said Shane Rau, research vice president, Computing Semiconductors at market researcher IDC.

“The market for storage and networking will demand x86-compatible processors optimized for core data center and edge infrastructure systems and processor vendors offering them will help their OEM customers significantly expand their system TAM while leveraging their existing investments in the x86 ecosystem.”
