AMD announced the arrival of a wave of high-performance Mini-PCs thanks to the use of its AMD Ryzen V1000 and R1000 embedded processors and the first partners to begin supplying these devices are ASRock Industrial, EEPD, OnLogic and Simply NUC (which had anticipated the announcement of embeded processors few weeks ago), which will offer fully customizable systems with high-performance CPUs / GPUs, the possibility of improving peripheral support or security.
“The demand for high-performance computing is not limited to servers or desktop PCs. Integrated system customers want to have access to compact-format PCs that can support open software standards, demanding workloads and even display 4K content, all this with integrated processors that have a planned availability of 10 years, “said Rajneesh Gaur, corporate vice president and CEO of AMD Integrated Solutions.
“This is why many of our technology partners have chosen AMD Ryzen Embedded processors to power their Mini-PCs. We are delighted to work together to provide the industry with a new open ecosystem for compact format computing.”
These devices, in the best of configurations will offer an AMD Ryzen V1807B with 4 cores and 8 threads of processing under the Zen @ 14nm microarchitecture at a Base / Turbo frequency of 3.35 / 3.80 GHz and significantly increasing the graphic power with an AMD Radeon Vega 11 with 704 Stream Processors @ 1.30 GHz. Obviously, it is not Zen2, but it offers enormous performance compared to what Intel is able to offer in that segment.
