ASUS PN50 – The World’s First AMD Ryzen 4000U Mini PC

AMD Ryzen 4000-U Series family was announced in January with the 15W processors targetting ultra-thin laptops. It’s already been found in laptops and the first reviews of Acer Swift 3 were positive with the laptop being slim, fast, and offering long battery life. But I had yet to see an AMD Ryzen 4000U mini PC until today, with ASUS PN50 mini PC shipping with a choice of five processors from AMD Ryzen 3 4300U to Ryzen 7 4800U, and a design identical to the company’s PN60 mini PC powered by Intel Kaby Lake Refresh processors.

DFI Ryzen Embedded R1606G SBC Review – Part 2: Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC

DFI GHF51 is an AMD Ryzen Embedded R1606G SBC for industrial application that’s about the size of the Raspberry Pi Model B boar, and after checking out the hardware in the first of part of the review “DFI GHF51 AMD Ryzen Embedded SBC Review – Part 1: Unboxing and Assembly“, I’ve now had time to play with the board running the pre-installed Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC operating system. DFI GHF51 Hardware Connections Since there aren’t any full-sized USB ports, you’ll need a USB-C hub to get started as you’ll probably want to connect a USB keyboard and mouse for development and testing, as well as a Micro HDMI cable to connect to a TV or display. I tried both MINIX NEO C Plus and Dodocool DC30S USB Type-C hubs, and the former did not work at all, while the latter mostly worked. I also connected an HDMI cable to the USB-C hub, but it’s not working, so the board only …

AMD Ryzen C7, an Arm Cortex-X1/A78/A55 Processor with MediaTek 5G Modem? (Leak)

Arm just announced Cortex-A78 and Cortex-X1 CPU cores last week, and we should expect several silicon vendors to announce new SoCs based on the new cores by the end of the year.  But AMD? Yes, according to a now-deleted leak from Slashleaks that lives on Twitter. AMD Ryzen C7 mobile processor would come with two Cortex-X1 based Gaugin_Pro mobile cores, two Cortex-A78 based Gaugin_Mobile cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores, AMD Radeon RDNA 2 mobile GPU, and somehow a MediaTek 5G UltraSave modem joined the party… AMD Ryzen C7 specifications: CPU 2x Gaugin_Pro Mobile Core @ 3.0 GHz (Cortex-X1 based) 2x Gaugin_Mobile Core @ 2.6 GHz (Cortex-A78 based) 4x Arm Cortex-A55 clocked @ 2.0 GHz GPU – AMD Radeon RDNA 2 Mobile with 4x compute units @ 700 Mhz that claims to be 45% faster than Adreno 650 GPU found in Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, and supports real-time hardware ray-tracing and variable rate shading.

Ryzen Embedded SBC is Made for Real-time AI Vision, Conveyor Belt Tracking

Axiomtek just recently introduced CAPA13R AMD Ryzen Embedded V1605B/V1807B SBC in 3.5″ embedded SBC form factor, and the company is now back with another, larger Ryzen Embedded SBC: Axiomtek MIRU130. Why would they launch yet another Ryzne Embedded board two weeks later? Different applications. While CAPA13R targets various graphics-intensive applications ranging from medical imaging to smart digital signage, MIRU130 appears to be especially focused on real-time vision-based AI applications with PoE and USB ports for cameras, and integrated “real-time vision I/Os” such as trigger inputs, LED lighting controllers, camera trigger outputs and an encoder input designed for conveyor tracking. MIRU130 SBC specifications: SoC (One or the other) – AMD Ryzen Embedded V1807B or V1605B quad-core processor with Radeon Vega 8 graphics; V1807B: 35-54W TDP; V1605B: 12-25W TDP System Memory – 2x 240-pin DDR4-2400 SO-DIMM, up to 16GB RAM Storage 1x SATA-600 1x M.2 Key B (SATA, USB 2.0, PCIe x2 optional) in 22×42, 22×80 or 30×42 BIOS AMI Display – …

DFI GHF51 AMD Ryzen Embedded SBC Review – Part 1: Unboxing and Assembly

Earlier this year, Taiwan based DFI launched GHF51 Ryzen Embedded R1000 SBC offering some similarities with Raspberry Pi 4 SBC, including a business card form factor, two Micro HDMI ports, and Gigabit Ethernet. But the comparison stopped there, as DFI GHF51 board will vastly outperform the Raspberry Pi 4 boards both in terms of CPU and graphics performance due to AMD Ryzen processor, and DFI embedded board does not target hobbyists nor students, but instead business and industrial customers. The company recently contacted CNX Software, and send GHF51 board with all accessories for review. I was pretty excited since it’s the first AMD Ryzen Embedded SBC that I’ll review, so it should be particularly interesting.  I’ve just received the sample and will do a two-part review starting with unboxing and kit assembly, before publishing the second part of the review reporting on my experience with Windows 10 and/or Ubuntu 20.04. DFI GHF51 Unboxing That’s quite a big package for a …
