AMD Ryzen V2000 Embedded Processors Launched: Up to 2x More Performance Per Watt

AMD has launched the next-gen lineup of its Embedded processors in the form of the V2000 chips. Based on the 7nm Zen 2 core architecture and an enhanced form of Vega graphics on the same node, AMD is promising up to 2x more performance per watt, compared to the existing Zen+ based embedded parts.

This increase comes in two forms: a ~15% increase in the IPC (+20 ST performance) and twice as many cores. The equation is pretty simplte. The higher density and efficiency of the 7nm process allow for a higher core count at roughly the same TDP, while the IPC and frequency gains improve the single-threaded performance.

Model TDP CPU Cores / Threads CPU Base Freq CPU Boost Freq (single-threaded) Radeon Graphics CUs Graphics Max Freq L2 Cache
V2748 35-54W 8 / 16 2.9 GHz 4.25 GHz 7 1.6 GHz 4MB
V2546 35-54W 6 / 12 3.0 GHz 3.95 GHz 6 1.5 GHz 3MB
V2718 10-25W 8 / 16 1.7 GHz 4.15 GHz 7 1.6 GHz 4MB
V2516 10-25W 6 / 12 2.1 GHz 3.95 GHz 6 1.5 GHz 3MB

As per AMD’s own figures, compared to the Zen-based V1000 processors, the V2000 CPUs offer:

  • 30-percent better single-threaded performance
  • 100-percent better multi-threaded performance
  • 40-percent better graphics performance

At launch, only four parts will be available, all capable of running up to four displays, with support for DDR4-3200 ECC memory. The lower-end parts have an operating frequency as low as 1.7GHz and a TDP of 10-25W, while the higher-end offering top out at 3GHz with a TDP of 54W.

With the launch of the V2000 embedded processors, we can expect to see more NUC-competitors in the near future. AMD’s launch partners for these chips include ASRock, UDOO and SimplyNUC.
