AMD Launches Ryzen Embedded V3000 Series Based On Zen3 With DDR5-4800 Memory Support

AMD Launches Ryzen Embedded V3000 Series Processors Delivering New Levels of Performance and Energy Efficiency for “Always On” Storage and Networking

The new processors offer up to 124% faster CPU performance1, 50% faster memory transfer2, 2x the number of CPU cores3, and improved I / O connectivity for 24/7 storage and network workloads

SANTA CLARA, California, 09/27/2022 – AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today unveiled the Ryzen ™ Embedded V3000 Series processors, adding the high-performance “Zen 3” core to the V-Series portfolio to provide reliable, scalable processing performance for a wide range of storage and networking applications. With greater CPU1 performance, DRAM2 transfer speed, CPU core count3 and I / O connectivity compared to the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 series, the new AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processors provide the performance and low power options required by some of the most demanding 24/7 operating environments and loads.

AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processors, now shipped to leading embedded ODM and OEM manufacturers, meet the growing demands for enterprise and cloud data storage, as well as routing, switching, and data center firewall features. AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processors can support a wide variety of applications, from hyper-converged virtual infrastructure to advanced systems at the edge of the network.

“We designed AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processors for customers looking for a balance between high performance and energy efficiency for a wide variety of applications in a compact BGA package. AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processors provide a robust feature set with the advanced benefits required for superior performance for enterprise workloads, cloud storage and networking products. ”

Said Rajneesh Gaur, vice president and general manager of Embedded Solutions Group, AMD.

AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processors are available in four, six, and eight-core configurations with low thermal power (TDP) profiles from 10W to 54W for storage and networking systems to provide a precise balance between performance and energy efficiency in a compact design. The new AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processor family enables system designers to use a single-board design for a wide variety of system configurations, with a ball grid (BGA) layout and low heat dissipation to create more versatile, flexible designs that facilitate system integration.

“Storage and networking require a different balance between computing performance, data movement, power management, and thermal management than traditional computing systems. Processors for storage and networking require computing, memory, and I / O capabilities balanced for rack space utilization, energy efficiency, and low heat dissipation in environments with limited space. The storage and networking market will require x86-compatible processors optimized for core datacenter and edge infrastructure systems, and their processor vendors will help OEM customers expand TAM significantly while leveraging existing investments in the x86 ecosystem. ”

Said Shane Rau, vice president of research, Computing Semiconductors, IDC.
