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.
