AMD expands Ryzen Embedded range

Two new R1000 low-power processors

AMD has expected its Ryzen Embedded range with two new R1000 low-power processors that provide customers with a new TDP range of 6-0 watts.

 AMD also announced new customers offering Mini PCs based on the AMD Ryzen Embedded processors from Sapphire, SECO, Simply NUC and others.

AMD's Embedded boss Rajneesh Gaur said AMD is ushering in a new age of high-performance computing for the embedded industry.

“We are doing this with cutting-edge technology to display immersive graphics in 4K resolution with AMD Ryzen Embedded processors, and we are now offering access to high performance in power-efficient solutions with these new low-power Ryzen Embedded R1000 processors.”

In April 2019, AMD expanded the Ryzen Embedded processor lineup with the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC. AMD claimed at the time that the chip, which was built on “Zen” CPU and Radeon“Vega” graphics cores, the Ryzen Embedded R1000 processor delivered three times better CPU performance per watt compared to the previous generation AMD R-series Embedded processor, and four times better CPU and graphics performance per dollar than the "unnamed" competition, AMD claims

The AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 family now includes two new processors designed for efficient power envelopes, the Ryzen™ Embedded R1102G and R1305G processors. The new processors scale from six up to 10 watts of TDP respectively, while also giving customers the ability to reduce system costs with less memory DIMMS and lower power requirements. With this low power envelope, these embedded processors give customers the ability to create fanless systems, opening new markets that can use the high-performance Ryzen Embedded processors. AMD claimed. These two new processors are expected to be available for order at the end of March.

Customers adopting the Ryzen Embedded R1102G and R1305G include KontronRed Oak

In December 2019, AMD, along with OEM partners, announced that it was enabling an open ecosystem for AMD Ryzen Embedded based Mini PCs, supporting industries including display/signage, enterprise and industrial computing. That list is expanding to include:

  • Sapphire’s new 4x4 platforms based on AMD Ryzen Embedded Processors: the BP-FP5 and NP-FP5 embedded boards,
  • Simply 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 Processor based Mini PC KIT, the UDOO BOLT GEAR, that can drive up to 4 screens in 4K resolution at 60fps at the same time.

OnLogic announced the availability of previously announced Mini PCs based on AMD Ryzen Embedded processors.
