Ryzen Embedded V1000 is an impressive chip and here we have the Udoo Bolt small form factor PC that has the Ryzen chip embedded into the board. The product is on Kickstarter and has gained a lot of attention. The campaign will end in July but we have already seen the official benchmarks and they seem very promising indeed.
The Smach Z handheld console is also powered by an embedded AMD chip and you can check out the details of the device here. Here we have some benchmarks of the Ryzen Embedded V1000 that will give you an idea of the kind of performance that you can expect. The benchmarks are included as follows:
We can see that the performance is better as compared to the previous version as well as other competing products on the market. There are gaming bechmarks as well which might not seem like much as compared to other PCs on the market but keeping in mind the size of the thing, it is pretty impressive. It might not be enough for gaming at 1080p but gaming at 720 is doable.
