AMD Expands Embedded Product Family, Adds Design Wins and Customers, with New Ryzen™ Embedded R1000

—The AMD Ryzen™ Embedded R1000 SoC provides a new class of performance for the embedded industry with 3X performance per watt vs. previous AMD R-Series SoC 1 and 4X performance per dollar compared to the competition2

TAIPEI, Taiwan, April 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At the Taiwan Embedded Forum, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announced the Ryzen™ embedded product family is growing with the new AMD Ryzen™ Embedded R1000 SoC. Building upon the success of the Ryzen™ Embedded V1000 SoC, the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC provides embedded customers with dual core, quad-threaded performance, as well as the ability to run fanless, low power solutions for 4K displays; while providing leading-edge security features. The AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 is perfect for applications in digital displays, high-performance edge computing, networking, thin clients and more.

Customers like Advantech, ASRock Industrial, IBASE, Netronome, Quixant and others are already working on Ryzen Embedded R1000-based products. As well, Atari© is using the high-performance Vega 3 graphics and ‘Zen’ CPU architecture in the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC to power the upcoming Atari VCS game system.

“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.”

Growing the Ryzen Embedded Family
The AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 continues to provide the embedded industry with the high-performance, rich multimedia capabilities and advanced security features established with the Ryzen Embedded V1000.

Specifically, as the embedded industry demands more immersive and engaging visual experiences, customers need processors that can support high-resolution displays with demanding graphics. The AMD Ryzen Embedded 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 compelling visual experience.

As well, the Ryzen Embedded R1000 utilizes the same leading-edge security features of the AMD embedded family, including Secure Root of Trust and Secure Run Technology, giving customers the features for enabling secure solutions, whether they are connected into an edge computing network, or running a digital display.

New Customers Driving Early Adoption 
As an industry leader in customer facing marketing technology including digital signage, STRATACACHE picked the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 and Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors to power new multi-output digital signage players serving the STRATACACHE, Scala, X2O Media and Real Digital Media product families. The players take advantage of the Ryzen Embedded platform, as well as the outstanding GPU performance to enable premium 4K visual experiences.

“The benefit of the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 and V1000 is it allowed us drive down the cost of multi-output 4K experiences,” Chris Riegel, CEO of STRATACACHE. “Both the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 provided us the graphics performance we needed in a single system on a chip that would have previously required more costly CPU and discrete GPU pairs, thereby saving us system costs and providing a smaller, more power efficient footprint that’s powerful enough to run multiple 4K displays supporting our world class CMS platforms.”

Netronome, a leader in high-performance, intelligent server and storage networking solutions, is using the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC for new advancements in networking solutions, security appliances and edge cloud computing. “The benefit of the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 for us is to expand our product range using the same high performance ‘Zen’ CPU cores, providing enterprise-class security features and leading-edge connectivity, as demonstrated in the larger Ryzen and EPYC™ processors,” said Mike Benson, SVP of Systems and Platforms Engineering at Netronome. “Our customers want to make sure they have secure and performant devices that provide them a great value, and the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC combined with our Network Flow Processor does just that. We’re excited to see the AMD Embedded portfolio expand and add it into our family of products.”

Quixant is a global leader focusing exclusively on the design and manufacture of the most advanced PC-based computer systems and monitors for the global gaming industry. “As a highly-valued launch partner of the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC, we are excited to yet again bring high-performance embedded processing to the casino and gaming industry,” said John Malin, global sales director, Quixant. “Our customers demand high quality graphics and displays, and AMD Ryzen embedded processors allow us to deliver that experience. Now with the new AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC, we can continue to deliver that, but at a better price per performance, benefiting everybody. The first offering is the QXi-7000 LITE - our most versatile platform yet.”

“With the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 powering the Atari VCS, we can support the 4K 60fps HDR content that users expect from a modern, secure gaming and entertainment system,” said Michael Arzt, COO of Atari Connected Devices. “AMD’s new Ryzen Embedded SoC will also help protect the VCS’ environment and content as we support an unprecedented open-access model that allows Atari’s highly-creative community to install any other operating system side by side with the Atari OS.”

Availability
The AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 will be available this quarter to ODMs and OEMs worldwide and is already supported by numerous hardware and software companies including Advantech, Alphainfo, ASRock Industrial, Axiomtech, DFI, iBase, Kontron, MEN, Mentor, Sapphire, zSpace and more.

As well, continuing a great partnership between the two companies, the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC supports the Mentor® Embedded Linux® Flex OS, which is available now. You can read more here .
