With a rich history of expertise in embedded solutions, AMD is taking a major leap forward by bringing together the powerful performance of the AMD “Zen” CPU and “Vega” GPU architectures to deliver powerful chip performance and stunning graphics capabilities.

 

RyzenBlog.jpgIntroducing the AMD Ryzen™ Embedded V1000. This next-generation embedded accelerated processing unit (APU) demonstrates the company’s commitment to highly scalable, integrated products with top security features and a dedication to long lifecycle support. With solutions built for the long haul, our latest family of processors will support end-user needs today and tomorrow.

 

Building on the success of AMD integrated embedded APUs, the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processor family delivers an up to 2X boost[i] in processing performance while reducing the design, form factor and thermal management challenges common in discrete CPU and GPU configurations. Not to mention the up to 3X increase in GPU performance over competitive solutionsiv. By coupling a high-performance CPU and GPU on a single die, this marks a new age of embedded processors in terms of performance and graphics capabilities.

 

The result? Users will benefit from significant space savings, smaller board designs and more efficient cooling architectures than what can be achieved with heterogeneous CPU and GPU chipsets. With these capabilities packaged in a small footprint, the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processor family can power up to four independent displays in 4K resolution with the additional ability to support 5K graphics for applications demanding extreme visual clarity, such as medical imaging in an ultrasound machine.
