As expected, AMD has now launched the Ryzen Embedded R2000 series processors that build up on the earlier Ryzen Embedded R1000 family, but doubles the number of cores to up to four, gets improved Radeon graphics, and adds support for Windows 11 operating system.
Performance and efficiency have also improved with the new Ryzen Embedded R2514 CPU exhibiting up to 81 percent higher CPU (Passmark v10) and graphics (3DMark) performance compared to Ryzen Embedded R1606G processor, as well as higher performance-per-watt efficiency thanks to the Zen+ core architecture.
The company has four Ryzen Embedded R2000 processors in its portfolio at launch.

- Enterprise-class security features through the AMD Secure Processor, as well as AMD Memory Guard for real-time DRAM memory encryption
AMD Ryzen R2000 processors support Microsoft Windows 11/10, and Linux Ubuntu LTS, and the company plans to make the processors available for 10 years. Industrial & robotics, thin client
machine vision, and IoT are the main sectors targetting by the new SoCs.
Advantech Innocore will use the new processor in the DPX-S451 platform for slot machines, casino games, and betting terminals, DFI will make small-size Ryzen R2000 computers and SBC’s (possibly an update to GHF51 Ryzen R1000 SBC), IBASE plans to launch SI-324-N2314 fanless digital signage player and INA1600 desktop uCPE/SD-WAN appliance, while Sapphire expects to launch/upgrade NUC, mini-STX and thin mini-ITX motherboards.
There’s no product page for now, so information is limited to what is shown in the press release, and the new Ryzen Embedded R2000 Series will be showcased at the AMD booth (Hall 3A, Stand 239) at Embedded World 2022, June 21-23, in Nuremberg, Germany.
