AMD Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series is a new “Zen 4” processor with integrated Radeon RDNA 2 graphics designed for high-performance embedded systems targetting industrial automation, machine vision, robotics, and edge servers.
The last two Ryzen Embedded families from AMD, namely the Ryzen Embedded V3000 and Ryzen Embedded 5000, mostly targeted headless networking and storage applications since the processors lacked any 3D GPU. But the new Ryzen Embedded 7000 processors bring back graphics with a Radeon RDNA 2 GPU clocked at up to 2.2 GHz and also come with up to 12 Zen4 cores clocked at up to 5.4 GHz, and feature up to 28 lanes of PCIe 5 connectivity.
Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series specifications:
- CPU – Up to 12-core/24-thread “Zen 4” processor
- GPU – Radeon RDNA 2 graphics 1WGP @ 2.2GHz max with support for AV1/VP9 decode, H.264/HEVC decode/cncode
- Cache – Up to 1MB L2 cache/Core, up to 32MB L3 cache/CCD
- System Memory – Dual-Channel ECC DDR5 memory at speeds up to 5200MT/s; 2x UDIMMs / 1x SO-DIMM per channel
- Video Output – Up to 4x display interfaces including 3x USB-C with DP-Alt mode
- High-speed Interfaces
- Up to 28 lanes of PCIe 5 connectivity on-chip
- Optional B650 or X670 chipset using 4 lanes of the PCIe 5
- Up to 12 lanes of PCIe Gen4
- Up to 8 lanes of PCIe Gen3 and/or SATA
- Up to 12x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.2 Gen2 x2, 8x USB 3.2 Gen2 x1
- Security – Onboard AMD Secure Processor (ASP) complemented with Microsoft Pluton trusted processor module (TPM)
- Package – 1718-pin LGA package (40x40mm) for AM5 socket
- TDP – 65W to 105W
- Manufacturing process – 5 nm
AMD provides support for Microsoft Windows 11/10/Server 2022, and Ubuntu Linux, and plans product availability for up to 7 years for customers requiring a a long-lifecycle support roadmap. Five parts are available at launch with the Ryzen Embedded 7700X, Ryzen Embedded 7600X, Ryzen Embedded 7945, Ryzen Embedded 7745, and Ryzen Embedded 7645 as shown in the table below. All models come with Radeon RDNA 2 graphics 1WGP clocked at up to 2.2GHz and support DDR5 memory up to 5,200 MT/s. The differences are in the number of cores and threads, Base and Turbo frequencies, and the size of the L2/L3 cache.
|Model||Nomimal TDP (W)||CPU Core/Threads||CPU Base Freq. (GHz)||CPU Boost Freq (GHz)||L2 cache (MB)||L3 cache (MB)|
|Ryzen Embedded 7700X||105||8/16||4.5||5.4||8||32|
|Ryzen Embedded 7600X||105||6/12||4.7||5.3||6||32|
|Ryzen Embedded 7945||65||12/24||3.7||5.4||12||64|
|Ryzen Embedded 7745||65||8/16||3.8||5.3||8||32|
|Ryzen Embedded 7645||65||6/12||3.8||5.1||6||32|
AMD says the Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series processors are currently in production. Some of the first boards based on the new Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series processors are Advantech’s AIMB-723 ATX motherboard and ASRock’s IMB-A1002 Mini-ITX motherboard both coming with the AMD B650 chipset. More details may be found in the press release and on the product page. The new Ryzen Embedded processors are also showcased at SPS in Nuremburg, Germany until November 16.
