AMD announces Ryzen Embedded V3000 processors with Zen 3 cores and support for DDR5-4800 RAM
Rumors about the Ryzen Embedded V3000 started popping online as early as mid-2021 suggesting that the V2000 successor would launch late last year, but it looks like the embedded market is not really a priority for AMD, and the launch actually came one year later. Most of the rumored specs turned out to be accurate, as well. According to internal tests, AMD estimates that the new Zen 3 cores and platform upgrades brought with the Ryzen Embedded V3000 lineup offer up to 124% greater CPU performance, 50% improved memory transfer rate, 2X CPU core count and superior I/O connectivity over the V2000 models, especially when it comes to storage and networking system applications.
Feature highlights for the new Ryzen Embedded V3000 series include:
- Up to 8x Zen 3 cores and 16 threads + up to 4 MB L2 cache and 16 MB L3 cache
- Dual 64-bit DDR5-4800 RAM w/ ECC support
- Up to 20x PCIe Gen 4 lanes (x8 + three x4)
- 2x SATA III / Sata Express / 2x4 NVMe
- 2x 10 GbE NICs
- 2x USB4 ports
- 2x USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 ports
- 4x USB 2.0
- UART, Secure I2C, SMBus, Secure SPI / eSPI. GPIO
The new Ryzen Embedded V3000 lineup consists of three 10-25 W processors and an additional two 35-45 (max 54) W models. For the 10-25 W segment, AMD provides the V3C14 quad-core, the V3C16 hexa-core and the V3C18 octa-core, while the increased TDP models include the V3C44 quad-core and the V3C48 octa-core. All processors can boost up to 3.8 GHz and do not integrate a graphics accelerator.
