AMD has announced its intention to create an “open ecosystem” for OEMs to build mini PCs based on its Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 systems on a chip (SoCs).

The AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 SoC combines 14nm Zen CPU cores and Vega GPU architecture on a single chip package. There are four models of the Ryzen Embedded V1000 SoC series, with the Ryzen Embedded V1807B with Radeon RX Vega 11 Graphics positioned as the highest end of the product range. It sports four Zen cores that support up to eight processing threads, with a base clock speed of 3.35GHGz that can be boosted up to 3.8GHz.

The Ryzen R1000 family is a rung below the V1000 series, and there are two SKUs, with the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1807B with Radeon RX Vega 11 Graphics as the most powerful of the series. It has a pair of Zen CPU cores with multi-threading support, a base clock speed of 2.6GHz that can be boosted up to 3.5GHz.

ASRock Industrial, EEPD, OnLogic and Simply NUC are the first manufacturer to take advantage of this open ecosystem. They will create mini PCs or SFF PCs that are able to handle computing workloads at the edge for the “industrial, media, communications and enterprise markets.”

These PCs are able to power 4K displays and have the necessary graphics processing grunt from Vega graphics to render 3D graphics as well.
