AMD is revamping the Ryzen Embedded CPU line-up with four new chips, increasing the core count, improving graphics performance and bringing multi-display compatibility to IoT and edge computing devices.
Now with up to four Zen+ cores, eight threads, 2MB of L2 cache, 4MB of L3 cache, and 8x Vega CUs, you can expect up to 81% better CPU and graphics performance compared to the R1000 series. Moreover, the chips support DDR4-3200 dual-channel memory, allowing the monitor to deliver 50% more memory bandwidth and up to twice the I/O connectivity of the R1000 processors.
The full AMD Ryzen R2000 Embedded CPU line-up can be found in this table:
|Model||TDP Range||Core / Thread Count||GPU CUs||Base CPU Freq. (GHz)||L2 Cache||L3 Cache||Expected Availability|
|R2544||35-54W||4 / 8||8||3.35||2 MB||4 MB||October 2022|
|R2514||12-35W||4 / 8||8||2.1||2 MB||4 MB||October 2022|
|R2314||12-35W||4 / 4||6||2.1||2 MB||4 MB||In Production|
|R2312||12-25W||2 / 4||3||2.7||1 MB||2 MB||In Production|
The new R2000 chips support multi-display configurations, allowing users to connect up to four 4K displays using DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI™2.0b, or eDP 1.3 ports. Other features include up to 16x PCIe 3.0 lanes, 2x SATA 3.0 ports and 6x USB interfaces (USB 3.2 Gen2 and 2.0).
For additional security, AMD also implemented various security features supported by the AMD Secure Processor to help protect data and validate code before executing it. Additionally, the new chips feature AMD Memory Guard to encrypt DRAM memory in real-time. Planned product availability goes up to 10 years, which should be enough to ensure continuous support for customers.
The first AMD R2000 Embedded CPUs (R2544 and R2514) will be available in October 2022. The other two (R2314 and R2312) will come at a later date.
KitGuru says: Do you have any personal IoT projects where you would like more CPU/GPU power? Maybe something equipped with one of these new R2000 chips can fulfil your needs.
