AMD Announces Zen 4 EPYC Embedded 9004 Series: Up to 96 Cores With 1P and 2P Solutions
While AMD’s portfolio of embedded products doesn’t receive quite as much attention as it should, it’s not a product lineup to be underestimated. AMD’s “fourth platform” covers a surprisingly wide range of chips for embedded devices and applications, ranging from miniscule chips for industrial computers and edge devices, all the way up to mighty EPYC processors designed for high throughput workloads. It’s the latter that AMD is focusing on today, as Embedded World 2023 kicks off. A key fixture in the global trade show season for highlighting and releasing embedded and IoT solutions, AMD is using the show to unveil its EPYC Embedded 9004 series, its next generation of embedded processors based on its highly efficient Zen 4 microarchitecture.
Derived from AMD’s standard EPYC 9004 chips for servers, the AMD EPYC Embedded 9004 processors are aimed at embedded applications such as automation, telecommunications, the Internet of Things (IoT), and edge computing; use cases where high power efficiency is a strict technical requirement. Coming with options in both 1P and 2P configurations, AMD’s EPYC Embedded 9004 series processors feature up to 96 cores (192 threads) per chip, with up to 384 MB of L3 Cache and duodenary (12) channel memory controllers, which are capable of supporting DDR5-4800 ECC memory in RDIMM, NVDIMM-N, and 3DS RDIMMs flavors.
