AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000: Dual 10 Gbit/s Ethernet directly in the processor

The Ryzen embedded CPUs get a big upgrade with the V3000 series. However, it is curious that the integrated graphics unit is no longer available.

 

AMD is renewing its range of processors for embedded systems: Five models from the Ryzen Embedded V3000 series are replacing the V2000 predecessors. Instead of Zen 2, there is Zen 3 technology, and AMD now integrates the logic for NBase-T Ethernet directly in the CPU – manufacturers can run two times 10 Gbit/s.

As usual, there are models with four to eight CPU cores, whose configurable thermal design power (TDP) ranges from 10 to 54 watts. The level 3 cache is 8 or 16 MB depending on the CPU. Two memory channels are based on DDR5-4800 RAM, and there are also 20 PCI Express 4.0 lanes for additional controllers or expansion cards.

Unlike all other Ryzen Embedded series, however, the V3000 does not have an integrated graphics unit. An independent graphics chip is therefore absolutely necessary for the operation of such systems. This can be a simple 2D GPU for displaying images, such as Aspeed’s AST2600, or a full-fledged graphics card.

V3C14 4 / 8 2.3GHz 3.8GHz 8 MB DDR5-4800 10-25W

The data most likely speaks for a secondary use of the Rembrandt dies that AMD uses for the mobile processors Ryzen 6000H and Ryzen 6000U. With a deactivation of the GPU and low CPU clock frequencies, the company can sell the scrap that is not suitable for use in notebooks. A die designed specifically for embedded systems would be atypical for AMD.

Rembrandt combines eight CPU cores (called Zen 3+ in marketing, but without any profound changes from Zen 3), DDR5 controller and PCIe 4.0. Previous leaks to the processor also talked about dual 10 Gbit/s Ethernet, which would simply be switched off in the notebook CPUs.
