AMD officially announced AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 Zen2 processor family yesterday, with claims of twice the multi-threaded performance-per-watt, up to 30 percent better single-thread CPU performance, and up to 40 percent better graphics performance over Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors.
We’ve already covered ADLINK cExpress-AR COM Express module featuring the new AMD embedded processor, but we should expect more Ryzen V2000 hardware announcements over the next few days and weeks, and ASRock Industrial has announced the iBOX-V2000 fanless mini PC with lower power parts, namely Ryzen Embedded V2516 & V2718, and targets embedded, industrial, and Edge applications such as retail, automation, automotive, entertainment, and smart cities.

ASRock IBOX-V2000 mini PC supports both VESA and wall-mounting, and the company only lists Windows 10 operating system, but hopefully, Linux distributions will also work. The embedded box PC ships with a 19V/90W power adapter, a screw package, a product DVD, a VESA mounting bracket, and a bracket for M.2 2280 SSD.
The mini PC is based on two AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 SBC’s, namely 4X4-V2000M and 4X4-V2000V that the company also sells separately to customers aiming to integrate those into their own chassis. Again the only difference is the choice of processor.
More details about ASRock iBOX-V2000 mini PC and corresponding 4×4-V2000 SBC can be found on ASRock website and the press release. The earlier ASRock industrial 4×4 BOX mini PC based on Ryzen Embedded V1000 is sold on Amazon, so contrary to many other industrial computers, iBOX-V2000 mini PC may eventually be sold to individuals.
