AMD announced it is enabling an open ecosystem for OEMs to create and customize high performance Mini PCs, powered by Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 processors. ASRock, EEPD, OnLogic and Simply NUC are the first OEMs to offer and sell these new Mini PC platforms for the industrial, media, communications and enterprise markets.

“The demand for high performance computing isn’t limited to servers or desktop PCs. Embedded customers want access to small form factor PCs that can support open software standards, demanding workloads at the edge, and even display 4K content, all with embedded processors that have a planned availability of 10 years,” said Rajneesh Gaur, corporate vice president and general manager, Embedded Solutions, AMD.

These new Mini PCs have access to an existing embedded processor ecosystem that supports open software standards, while providing OEMs the capability to create unique, customizable platforms. They support a growing list of software partners with pre-validated packages based on open source software. These Mini PCs can run software for machine vision, object detection, edge inference, and analytics from AMD software ecosystem partners, creating a platform that’s well suited for applications that require fast deployment.

The AMD Ryzen Embedded processors bring together “Zen” CPU and “Vega” GPU architectures in a seamlessly integrated SoC solution to support the modern computing needs of industrial, media, and enterprise applications. The V1000 and R1000 processors provide scalable solutions from 6 watts to 54 watts in a pin compatible package that powers high resolution, 4K multi-display configurability and high-performance 3D graphics.
