AMD has lifted the lid on variants of its 4th generation Epyc processors optimized for embedded applications, delivering greater performance and scalability – although device engineers may look askance at the power envelope ranging up to 400W.

Announced at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany, the Epyc Embedded 9004 Series consists of 10 processor models with 16 up to 96 cores in single-socket and dual-socket versions, designed to meet the performance and efficiency requirements of applications such as networking, security/firewall devices, storage and industrial systems, AMD says.

Although the chipmaker reckons it is bringing "world-class performance and energy efficiency" to embedded systems, the Epyc Embedded 9004 Series appears to have a thermal design power (TDP) profile of 200W up to 400W for the top-end chips, which is in line with that of the chipmaker's mainstream 4th gen Epyc family, which launched late last year.

However, engineers will be more pleased by the seven-year planned availability for the chips, given that embedded chips tend to be used in hardware and appliances that will be around for longer than the average PC or server lifecycle.
