AMD Announces Ryzen Embedded R2000 Series with Optimized Performance and Power Efficiency for Industrial, Machine Vision, IoT and Thin-Client Solutions

New Ryzen Embedded R-Series system-on-chips provide up to 2X more cores, enhanced Radeon graphics, Windows 11 support, and versatile, multi-display configurability

NUREMBURG, Germany, June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  (Embedded World 2022) AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announced the Ryzen™ Embedded R2000 Series, second-generation mid-range system-on-chip (SoC) processors optimized for a wide range of industrial and robotics systems, machine vision, IoT and thin-client equipment. Ryzen Embedded R2000 Series doubles the core count1 and delivers a significant performance uplift compared to the prior generation, with the new R2515 model exhibiting up to 81 percent higher CPU2 and graphics3 performance than the comparable R1000 series processor. Performance-per-watt efficiency is also optimized using “Zen+” core architecture with AMD Radeon™ graphics for rich and versatile multimedia capabilities. Ryzen Embedded R2000 processors can power up to four independent displays in brilliant 4K resolution.

Embedded R2000 Series processors are scalable up to four “Zen+” CPU cores with eight threads, 2MB of L2 cache and 4MB of shared L3 cache. This gives embedded system designers great flexibility to scale performance and power efficiencies with a single processing platform.

With support for up to 3200 MT/s DDR4 dual-channel memory and expanded I/O connectivity, the Ryzen Embedded R2000 Series processors deliver 50 percent higher memory bandwidth4 and up to 2X greater I/O connectivity5 compared to R1000 series processors.

“For industrial applications like robotics and machine vision as well as thin clients and mini-PCs, the Ryzen Embedded R2000 Series raises the bar on performance and functionality,” said Rajneesh Gaur, corporate vice president and general manager, Adaptive & Embedded Computing Group at AMD. “The Embedded R2000 Series provides system designers with more performance, optimized power and better graphics, all with a seamless upgrade path.”
