Besides cybersecurity, multitasking capability is one of the most important features of edge computers. AMD Ryzen V2000 processor modules offer the best thread performance per euro for this today. Detailed benchmark data are available from congatec on request.
AMD V2000 modules deliver best performance per euro
AMD Ryzen V2000 processors have a clear edge: They deliver about 10% more performance yet costs are approximately 20% lower.
Previously, x86 embedded systems would typically only consolidate control and HMI functions on one system – if any at all. Today’s edge computing designs must be capable to perform many additional tasks, from displaying and analyzing all the various data to transcoding logs and sending alerts. Another task that needs managing is access control to multiple instances, from devices and users to customer and OEM administrators, both locally as well as remotely. With VPN, encryption, firewall, whitelisting and intrusion detection and other security functions.
All this adds to the list of ever-increasing requirements for embedded systems. So the more cores and threads a processor supports, the better. And the higher the performance per core or thread per euro, the more cost-efficient it becomes to achieve the specific performance target. For client systems with graphics support – something that is increasingly needed besides GUI functionality to provide situational awareness with image recognition and artificial intelligence – Computer-on-Modules with AMD Ryzen V2000 processors set a new benchmark. And not just in terms of pure performance ratings – such as Cinebench – but also in terms of thread performance per euro, because they offer around 10% more performance at around 20% lower cost. Adding up to a potential advantage of 30%, this is a compelling sales argument in favor of AMD.
Delivering up to twice the computing power per watt and twice the number of cores compared to the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000, the modules based on the V2000 processors also offer outstanding parallel computing performance with up to 16 threads. The modules further set a new performance-per-watt benchmark that unleashes maximum performance gains in 15-watt TDP designs and scales to high-performance system designs with 54-watt TDP. The exceptional performance of this platform within its processor class has been validated with the Cinebench R15 nt cross-platform test suite  by simulating real-world application scenarios. Compared to modules with AMD Ryzen Embedded V1608B processors, conga-TCV2 modules deliver a performance increase of 97% (V2516) to 140% (V2718) with up to 8 cores.

Long-term 24/7 operation

Thanks to the 7nm Zen 2 cores, single-core performance increased between 25% and 35%. This makes the modules perfect candidates to enhance the performance in 24/7 connected applications and embedded systems deployed at a wide variety of industrial edges. Typical applications include multifunctional industrial edge gateways, digital signage systems, gaming terminals, and infotainment platforms for digital signage or at the POS. With up to 40% more GPU performance for up to 4x 4k60 graphics and comprehensive GPGPU support, further target markets  include multi-display medical imaging systems in hospital operating rooms as well as machine vision and machine learning systems.
