AMD Intros EPYC Embedded and Ryzen Embedded Processors

Published

on

AMD today introduced two new product families – the AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 processor and AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processor – to enter a new age for high-performance embedded processors. AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 brings the power of “Zen” to a variety of new markets including networking, storage and edge computing devices, while AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 targets medical imaging, industrial systems, digital gaming and thin clients. These new AMD Embedded processors deliver breakthrough performance, exceptional integration and on-chip security.

“Today we extend the high-performance x86 ‘Zen’ architecture from PCs, laptops and the datacenter to networking, storage and industrial solutions with the AMD EPYC Embedded and AMD Ryzen Embedded product families, delivering transformative performance from the core to the edge,” said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Business Group, AMD. “AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 raises the bar in performance for next-generation network functions virtualization, software-defined networking and networked storage applications. AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 brings together the ‘Zen’ core architecture and ‘Vega’ graphics architecture to deliver brilliant graphics in a single chip that provides space and power savings for medical imaging, gaming and industrial systems. With these high-performance products, AMD is ushering in a new age for embedded processors.”

Several customers announced products based on AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 and AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000, including:

  • The Esaote ultra-performance MyLab 9 eXP ultrasound system for general medical imaging, women’s healthcare and cardiovascular diagnostics, based on the Ryzen Embedded V1000 and targeting Q3 availability.
  • The Quixant QX-70 4K Ultra HD casino gaming platform, based on the Ryzen Embedded V1000 and available today.
  • Four products from Advantech based on the Ryzen Embedded V1000, including an integrated casino gaming platform and multimedia gaming engine, high-performance Com-E module for medical, automation and gaming applications, and a mini-ITX embedded motherboard.

Also, with support from more than 16 major ecosystem partners, companies can purchase boards and access software with AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 and AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 technology. These include:

  • The new IBASE MI988 Mini-ITX motherboard, SI-324 4x HDMI 2.0 digital signage player and FWA8800 1U rackmount network appliance that deliver datacenter class dependability, advanced integration and superior performance for a wide number of embedded applications.
  • The Mentor Embedded Linux and Codesourcery software tools from Mentor Graphics that provide developers with improved performance and features to grow the embedded ecosystem, available today.
  • The excitement and momentum around today’s announcement from AMD is supported by several significant proof points.

AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 processor portfolio delivers:

  • Up to 2.7X more performance-per dollar than the competition
  • Up to 2X more connectivity than the competition
  • Enterprise-grade reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features

AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processor portfolio delivers:

  • Up to 2X uplift in performance over previous generations
  • Up to 3X more GPU performance than the competition
  • Up to 46 percent more multi-threaded performance than the competition
  • Up to 26 percent smaller footprint than the competition for optimized board design

In addition to performance, security remains a top concern for enterprise customers, whether they are designing top-of-rack switches, thin client devices or anything in between. AMD EPYC Embedded and AMD Ryzen Embedded processors help protect data at the hardware level with an on-chip secure processor, complemented by hardware validated boot capabilities to help ensure systems are booted up from trusted software. Additionally, Secure Memory Encryption (SME) deters unauthorized physical memory access while Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV) offers further deterrence by encrypting virtual machine (VM) memory, without the need to make changes at the application level.

CORSAIR Intros 30mm Thick RS MAX Series PC Fans

Published

on

CORSAIR has announced the launch of its first 30mm-thick PC cooling fans, the RS MAX Series. By combining extremely durable Liquid Crystal Polymer material with a larger fan blade bolstered by AirGuide technology, CORSAIR’s expert engineers have created its best-performing fan with zero compromises.

The RS MAX Series connects with a simple 4-pin PWM header, enabling precise adjustment over fan speeds without the need for a separate controller.

With a 20% increase in thickness over standard fans, the RS MAX Series can spin at a lower speed to generate the same airflow as its thinner counterparts – translating into lower overall fan noise.

For enthusiasts who push their systems to the limit, the high static pressure created by the RS MAX’s larger fan blade helps power airflow through obstructions and dense radiators, making it an ideal choice for high-performance liquid cooling setups.

CORSAIR Magnetic Dome bearings – an evolution of the acclaimed magnetic levitation bearing – significantly reduce friction for both enhanced longevity and quieter operation. For PC builders looking to boost performance without boosting noise, the RS MAX Series will help push your system to the max.

The CORSAIR RS MAX Series is available in 120mm and 140mm sizes from the CORSAIR webstore and the CORSAIR worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors.

Gigabyte Unveils Limited Edition “Ice” Themed Motherboard and GPU

Published

on

Gigabyte has officially launched its long-awaited XTREME Prestige Limited Edition lineup, featuring a visually stunning and overclocked RTX 4080 SUPER graphics card and a feature-packed Z790 motherboard. Both components boast a luxurious titanium and gold design, complete with unique engraved serial numbers, hinting at the limited production run – estimated between 300 and 500 units.

The centrepiece, the Aorus GeForce RTX 4080 Super Xtreme Ice 16G, boasts a factory overclock of 150 MHz and improved performance over the stock model. Gigabyte claims it delivers 885 AI TOPs compared to the stock card’s 836. Cooling this beast are three massive “bionic shark” fans and a large vapour chamber. For those seeking ultimate customization, the fans feature addressable RGB rings, and the card itself sports an LCD monitor displaying customizable GIFs.

The Z790 Aorus Xtreme X Ice motherboard complements the graphics card perfectly. It boasts a unique crystalized titanium finish, a golden CPU socket, and a removable M.2 heatsink. Feature-wise, it supports DDR5 memory with speeds exceeding XMP-8266 and offers AI-powered CPU overclocking, promising speeds exceeding 6.3 GHz on an i9-14900KS. An included external DAC further boosts audio quality.

While pricing remains a mystery (promised on the Gigabyte website but currently unavailable), expect a hefty price tag, likely exceeding $1,299 for the graphics card alone. Both products will be sold separately, but a future bundle with additional Xtreme Ice components is a possibility.

Gigabyte promises a luxurious “unboxing experience” for each component, complete with premium packaging, high-end tools, and even anti-static gloves. We’ll update this story with confirmed pricing when available.
