AMD introduces two families of high-performance embedded processors

By eeNews Europe

The AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 range is intended for applications that include networking, storage and edge computing devices, while the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 series focuses on video-intensive applications, such as medical imaging, industrial systems, digital gaming and thin clients. Both new ranges feature high-processing performance, a high level of integration and on-chip security.

The x86-based EPYC Embedded 3000 processors extend AMD’s EPYC family and bring the ZEN architecture to the embedded market. The devices feature expansive I/O options, allow simultaneous multithreading, have a high-level of built-in security features and offer a scalable path from the embedded processors up to datacentre class products. The EPYC Embedded 3000 processors use the Zen architecture and are fabbed on a 14nm FinFET process to deliver a 52% improvement in instructions per clock (IPC). Developers can choose between high-speed single-thread processing performance and/ or multithread processing leveraging up to 16 cores.

The Ryzen Embedded V1000 processor family pairs the Zen CPU architecture with the Vega GPU architecture in a single SoC. The series is intended for graphically intensive applications and multimedia processing. The range offers a compute performance of up to 3.6 TFLOPS. Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors also offer integrated security features and a wide range of I/O options. They are intended to simplify the form factor and thermal management design challenges found when developing graphical applications. A single AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 SoC has the ability to power four independent displays in 4K resolution.

Several customers have already announced products based on the two new processors.
