AMD EPYC 3000 and Ryzen V1000 Embedded Processors Introduced To “Enter A New Age”

AMD has been making quite a splash in the CPU and APU market with it’s with Ryzen CPUs and now the company has announced the AMD EPYC 3000 and Ryzen V1000 embedded processors to “enter a new age for high-performance embedded processors”.

AMD EPYC 3000 is powered by the “Zen” architecture and is targeted towards “networking, storage and edge computing” devices. On the other hand, AMD Ryzen V1000 is targeted towards “medical imaging, industrial systems, digital gaming and thin clients”.

As for the performance comparison compared to the competition, AMD EPYC 3000 brings 2.7X performance boost while AMD Ryzen V1000 brings 2X increase in performance compared to the previous iterations.

AMD EPYC Embedded 3000:

  • Up to 2.7X more performance-per dollar than the competition
  • Up to 2X more connectivity than the competition
  • Enterprise-grade reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features

AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000:

  • Up to 2X uplift in performance over previous generations
  • Up to 3X more GPU performance than the competition
  • Up to 46 percent more multi-threaded performance than the competition
  • Up to 26 percent smaller footprint than the competition for optimized board design

In terms of specs, AMD EPYC 3000 brings up to 16 cores, up to 32 MB shared L3 Cache, boost frequency of 3.1 GHz, up to 4 independent Memory channels, up to 64 Lanes of PCIe Gen-3. Check out the full specs.

  • Highly scalable processor family with designs ranging from four cores to 16 cores, available in single-thread and multi-threaded configurations.
  • Support for thermal design power (TDP) ranges from 30W to 100W.
  • Expansive, integrated I/O with support for up to 64 PCIe lanes and up to eight channels of 10 GbE.
  • Up to 32MB shared L3 cache with up to four independent memory channels.
  • Unparalleled enterprise-grade RAS to address data detection, correction, recovery and containment, helping ensure that systems are continuously running even under the most stringent enterprise environments.
  • On-board secure processor for crypto co-processing, SME to defend against unauthorized physical memory access, and SEV for encrypting VM memory to help protect against various administrator attacks without disrupting application codes.
  • Product availability for up to 10 years, offering customers a long lifecycle support roadmap.

As for the specs for AMD Ryzen V1000, it features “up to four CPU cores/eight threads and up to 11 GPU compute units” and is capable of achieving 3.6 TFLOPS of computational power.
