Ryzen Embedded R2000 Chips With Up to 81% More Performance for Robotics Announced

AMD has announced the “Ryzen Embedded R2000”, its second generation of processors dedicated to corporate and industrial applications. As their own announcement explains, these processors target “industrial and robotic systems, machine vision , IoT and thin client computers”.

The new lineup advances to the Zen+ architecture — succeeding the “R1000” family with the Zen architecture — and doubles the core count to a maximum of 4 drives and 8 threads. The platform also integrates 8 Radeon Vega GPU cores which, together with the other improvements, promises an increase of up to 81% in GPU and CPU performance.

If numbers attract, the manufacturer claims that the four models announced — R2544, R2514, R2314 and R2312 — are capable of delivering 50% higher memory bandwidth and supporting twice the data flow on their input and output connectivity. The Ryzen Embedded R2000 supports up to 3,200 MT/s with two channels of DDR4 RAM.

Other I/O improvements include twice the PCI Express 3.0 lanes supported for 16 lanes , plus two SATA 3.0 ports and 6 USB 3.2 and 2.0 ports. Ryzen Embedded R2544 is capable of supporting up to 4 external displays with 4K resolution. To ensure a smooth multimedia experience, the processors have a total of up to 6 MB of cache memory.

“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.”

The line has high flexibility so that it can be incorporated into different types of systems — after all, that’s where its name “Embedded” comes from — with Windows 11, Windows 10 and LTS versions of Linux Ubuntu. The hardware works at low power — the most advanced of the range can have a power profile configured between 35 and 54 watts.
