The ‘Zen 2’ cores are built on a 7nm process technology and feature high-performance AMD Radeon graphics. The new processors offer excellent performance and power efficiency, as well as providing enterprise-class security features for embedded customers.

The AMD Embedded Ryzen V2000 family features up to eight CPU cores and seven GPU compute units. One AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 Series processor can provide 2×4 the multi-threaded performance-per-watt, up to 30 percent better single-thread CPU performance and up to 40 percent better graphics performance over the previous generation. The same processor can power up to four independent displays in 4K resolution.

“AMD is continuing to deliver high performance embedded processors for our customers with the new Ryzen Embedded V2000 series,” said Rajneesh Gaur, corporate vice president and general manager, Embedded Business, AMD. “Pairing the ‘Zen 2’ CPU cores with Radeon graphics, we’re now providing our customers with a new class of performance and power efficiency with 7nm technology that enables them to implement unique designs that target their applications. We continue the 10-year planned availability as with our other Ryzen Embedded processors and look forward to seeing partners and customers utilizing fast processing speeds, integrated graphics and outstanding power efficiency of the Ryzen Embedded V2000 processor for years to come.”

The new range offers advanced security features to assist in the defence against unauthorized access to memory or critical software. The processors support AMD Memory Guard, a suite of security features including Secure Boot and Secure Memory Encryption. Secure Memory Encryption encrypts stored memory to help prevent illicit data accessing. It also helps mitigate cold boot attacks.

Initial launch partners of the AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 series include Advantech, ASRock Industrial, iBase and Sapphire. Other ecosystem partners pledging their support.

As a current provider of AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 Series-based Mini PCs, ASRock Industrial is adding support for the new V2000 Series to its Mini PC lineup. “By working with AMD, we were able to deliver the first AMD Ryzen Embedded Mini PC system in the world, providing reliable, high-performance solutions. With the launch of the AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 Series, we are looking forward to implementing the new enhanced performance and security capabilities into our family of 4×4 products,” said James Lee, President of ASRock Industrial.

“The AMD Ryzen Embedded products have been an excellent choice for us building platforms with leading performance and features. The V2000 series sets a new standard for embedded designs and allows us to offer the performance to support four independent displays in 4 resolution, while maintaining a secure host connection. We are excited to bring the embedded industry the performance and features from the Ryzen Embedded V2000 series with our new 4×4 and 5×5 motherboards and the new Simply NUC Mini PC,” said Paul Smith, senior director of Business Development for Embedded Products at Sapphire.
