AMD has introduced the Ryzen Embedded R2000 processors for embedded systems. They are based on the Zen+ architecture. The series includes four models that have two or four cores.
The manufacturer notes that compared to the Ryzen Embedded R1000, the performance of new products has increased by 81%. The processors offer frequencies from 2.1 to 3.35 MHz, have 2 or 4 MB L3 cache and 1 or 2 MB cache in the second level and also have a declared power consumption of 12 to 54 watts. The new processor series supports dual-channel DDR4-3200 memory. In addition, the number of PCI Express 3.0 lanes has doubled to 16. A number of Ryzen Embedded R2000 models offer support for multi-threading technology.
New processors allow you to connect not three, but four displays with a resolution of 4K, but HDMI support is still limited to version 2.0b. There is support for USB 3.2 Gen2. It can also be noted that the new products have a security co-processor AMD Secure Processor that allows you to encrypt the contents of the RAM in real time. Ryzen Embedded R2000 chips belong to the industrial series, so their support period is 10 years.
Support for the Windows 10/11 and Ubuntu LTS operating systems is announced for new chips. AMD points out that partners who have already presented or are about to present their solutions based on the Ryzen Embedded R2000 include Advantech, DFI, IBASE and Sapphire Technology. The chips are used in arcade platforms, digital kiosks, thin clients, industrial motherboards, SD-WAN platforms and other products.
The company states that the lower models of the Ryzen Embedded R2000 series processors are in production. Senior chips will be available this October.
