AMD releases Ryzen Embedded R2000 series SoC

AMD announced the launch of the Ryzen Embedded R2000 series, its second-generation mid-range system-on-chip (SoC) targeting a wide range of industrial and robotics systems, machine vision, IoT and thin client devices, and more. Compared with the previous generation, AMD doubled the number of cores, bringing significant performance improvements. For example, the CPU and GPU parts of the R2515 have an 81% increase in performance compared to the R1000 series.

The Ryzen Embedded R2000 series uses the Zen+ architecture, which can be configured with up to 4 cores and 8 threads, with 2MB of L2 cache and 4MB of shared L3 cache. This provides embedded system designers with great flexibility, resulting in better platform scalability and energy efficiency. It supports DDR4 dual-channel memory of 3200MT/s and has extended I/O connections, offering 16 PCIe 3.0 lanes, 2 SATA 3.0, and 6 USB ports (USB 3.2 Gen2 and USB 2.0), memory bandwidth has been increased by 50% and I/O connectivity has been doubled compared to the previous generation.

The Radeon graphics built into the Ryzen Embedded R2000 series can utilize DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, or eDP 1.3 interfaces to provide 4K resolution output for up to four independent monitors. Enterprise-grade security features powered by AMD Secure Processor help protect sensitive data and validate code before execution, while AMD Memory Guard can be used for real-time DRAM memory encryption.

The operating systems supported by the Ryzen Embedded R2000 series include Microsoft Windows 10/11 and Linux Ubuntu LTS, and product availability can be extended to ten years, providing customers with long-life support.
