1 min read

AMD has announced that the Ryzen embedded product family is growing, with the addition of the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC.

The R1000 SoC looks to provide embedded customers with dual core, quadthreaded performance, as well as the ability to run fanless, low power solutions for 4K displays, according to the company, while providing leading-edge security features.

The R1000 is intended for applications in digital displays, high-performance edge computing, networking and thin clients.

“The AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 builds out the Ryzen Embedded family and provides a compelling option for customers that want access to the powerful ‘Zen’ and ‘Vega’ architecture and are looking for a highly competitive power/performance solution,” said Stephen Turnbull, director of product management and business development, Embedded Solutions, AMD. “The Ryzen Embedded R1000 can support rich multimedia environments for digital displays and casino gaming, enterprise class security features for edge computing, networking and thin clients, and, most importantly introduces a new class of performance while providing customers with software and hardware compatibility with the extended Ryzen Embedded family.”

The Ryzen Embedded R1000 looks to build on the success of the company's V1000, and has been developed to support more immersive and engaging visual experiences - customers need processors that are able to support high-resolution displays with demanding graphics.

The R1000 supports up to three 4K displays at up to 60 FPS, while providing H.265 Encode/Decode(10b) and VP9 decode3 capabilities. This enables OEMs and ODMs to deliver a much improved visual experience.

The Ryzen Embedded R1000 uses the same security features as the AMD embedded family, including Secure Root of Trust and Secure Run Technology, giving customers the features necessary to secure their solutions, whether they are connected into an edge computing network, or running a digital display.
