Soon we will have among us the first products with the new SoC from AMD Ryzen V1000 a product intended to compete with the Intel Gemini Lake, this type of soldered on board processors are intended for tablets, 2 in 1, ultrabooks and low consumption boards. An interesting product because it is basically identical to the latest Ryzen APUs but in a more compact package.
For now these new AMD Ryzen V1000 SoC They have been seen in different leaks and in the specifications of some boards for servers. We have support for DDR4 memory up to 3200 MHz, PCI-E 8x connector, mini PCI-E, mSATA disk connector and also M.2. A board that is focused on an industrial environment but that could have a version for miniPCs or mobile devices without any problem.
The data of these products coincide with the leaks of the AMD R-series SoCs known as great horned owl, a miniature version of the current AMD Ryzen APUs that maintain many of their interesting specifications. Inside this SoC we have a GPU Vega with 11 Compute Units with H.265 support that enables DisplayPort 1.3 video outputs and HDMI 2.0 4K@60fps. Also we can see support USB 3.1 up to 10Gbps, eMMC 5.1 support in addition to SATA and NVMe connections. The consumption of these SoCs would be between 12 and 45W Depending on the configuration, these SoCs are expected to be presented at the Embedded World 2018 fair at the end of this month of February, without a doubt a very good rival for the Intel Gemini Lake.
We expand information with the different variables of this family of processors, their TPD consumption, as we see there are two clearly different ranges depending on the memory that they can mount.
At the performance level, without a doubt, the quad-core models have a very interesting performance compared to the processors of the same Intel range, we will be attentive to this product in the future.
