Ryzen Embedded V2000

On November 11th AMD announced on their new generation series of high-performance embedded processor – the AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 series processor. The processor is based on AMD’s Zen 2 cores with production of 7nm process and high-performance AMD Radeon™ graphics, which offer x2 better performance then Embedded V1000. The Embedded V2000 is designed for embedded applications such as Thin Client, MiniPC and Edge systems.

The Embedded V2000 series comes with 4 different processors that equipped with up to 8 CPU cores. Although, AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors was announced a month ago, the Embedded V2000 will be based on the old and familiar Zen 2 cores with production of 7nm process (we first encounter Zen 2 by Ryzen 3000 series processor). The V2000 series along with the Zen 2 cores will be equipped with a built in GPU cores by AMD Radeon graphics.

The New processors will come with production of 10-25 and 35-54 watt for different usages that they were designed for. More then that, the processors will offer up to x2 improvements per watt, 15% IPC improvements, 30% improvement performance per core and 40% graphic improvements compare to the previous generation the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000. The Embedded V2000 will come with 20 PCIe channels and support for up to 4 monitors with 4k display resolution simultaneously with encoding and processing video with resolution of 4k 60 fps.

On October 28th at AMD’s 2nd event , “Where Gaming Begins Ep. 2”, the company announced on their new graphic card generation series – the Radeon RX 6000. Radeon RX 6000 join to the Ryzen 5000 processors that was announced earlier this month. AMD announced 3 graphic cards and one of them is considered the flag ship model – the Radeon RX 6900 XT, which managed to offer the same and even better performance than its competitor – The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3900.

The new graphic card generation is equipped with new technology that improve the performance by 54% to 65% with the new RDNA 2 core, compared to the original RDNA from Radeon RX 5000. One of the important changes is the Radeon RX 6000 comes with built-in support of Microsoft’s DirectX 12 Ultimate and RayTracing technologic.

The new Series include 128mb “Infinity Cache”, 16GB Max Memory Size, GDDR6 Memory Type and:

  • Radeon RX 6800 – 3840 Stream Processors ,60 Compute Units, 60 Ray Accelerators, up to 1815 MHz Game Frequency, 250W GPU Power.
  • Radeon RX 6800 XT – 4608 Stream Processors ,72 Compute Units, 72 Ray Accelerators, up to 2015 MHz Game Frequency, 300W GPU Power.
  • Radeon RX 6900 XT – 5120 Stream Processors ,80 Compute Units, 80 Ray Accelerators, up to 2015 MHz Game Frequency, 300W GPU Power.

Among the new upgrades that AMD done to the new generation is adding new cache technologic – the Infinite Cache with size of 128mb, which allows the 16GB RAM type GDDR6 and memory interface of 256-bit to reach memory bandwidth of up to 512Gb/s which is 2.17 times more then memory interface of 385-bit and 10% less GPU Power needed.

According to the performance tests that AMD presented during the event, the company succeeded to go head to head with Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3000 series.

AMD Announced their new Processors – The Ryzen 5000 series.

On October 8th, AMD Announced on their new generation processors series – the Ryzen 5000 that is based on Zen 3 cores and according to AMD, the new generation processors will be 19% better.

The new series includes 4 new processors. Among them you can find the Ryzen 9 5950X which has 16 cores and 32 threads. All the processors will be available on November.

The Ryzen 5000 line come as the 4th generation of AMD’s Ryzen processors and will replace the Ryzen 3000 series for desktop. The jump between 3000 to 5000
stems from the fact that the Ryzen 4000 series is a mobile/laptop processors line. The Ryzen 5000, according to AMD, is made for gamers.

The New Zen 3 Cores come with 7mm manufacturing process and show improvements of 19% performance then the last generation. We can find in the new processors uses of CCX (Core Complex) with 8 cores and 32mb memory of CacheL3 that is available to all the cores with CCX.

During the announcements, as we said, there are 4 new processors for Ryzen 5000 series.

  • Ryzen 5 5600X with 6 cores
  • Ryzen 7 5800X with 8 cores
  • Ryzen 9 5900X with 12 cores
  • Ryzen 9 5950X with 16 cores.

According to AMD the improvement of IPC in the new processors will increase the game average performances by 26% that run on 1080p compare to the previous generation.

Prices and Specs

  • AMD Ryzen 9 5950X: 16-core, 32 thread, 4.9GHz boost, 72 MB L2+L3 cache, 105W TDP for $799
  • AMD Ryzen 9 5900X: 12-core, 24 thread, 4.8GHz boost, 70MB L2+L3 cache, 105W TDP for $549
  • AMD Ryzen 7 5800X: 8-core, 16 thread, 4.7GHz boost, 36MB cache, 105W TDP for $499
  • AMD Ryzen 5 5600X: 6-core, 12-thread, 4.6GHz boost, 35MB cache, 65W TDP for $299

The new processors will be available to purchase starting November 5th.

Although AMD’s new graphic card generation series, the Radeon RX 6000, will be announce on October 28th, AMD shared its shape before the announcement.
