SolidRun 1st Fanless IPC with AMD Ryzen Embedded 8000 – Bedrock R8000 Edge AI

Apr 8, 2024 — by Giorgio Mendoza 338 views

SolidRun has just announced the release of the Bedrock R8000. This new fanless Industrial PC is notable for being the first to integrate AMD’s Ryzen Embedded 8000 series processor, targeting applications in Generative AI and AI Inferencing at the edge due to its compatibility with Hailo AI accelerators. 

At its core, the Bedrock R8000 features the robust AMD Ryzen Embedded 8000 processor. This powerful component includes an 8-core, 16-thread Zen4 CPU that can reach speeds of up to 5.1 GHz. Enhancing its performance is the Radeon 780M GPU, composed of 6 Work Group Processors and 12 Compute Units.


An additional highlight is the unit’s 16 TOPS Neural Processing Unit, further enhancing its AI processing capabilities.

Offering versatile performance, the AMD Ryzen Embedded 8000 series APUs in the Bedrock R8000 allow for CPU power adjustments from 8W to 54W in the BIOS. This flexibility is complemented by support for up to three AI accelerators, including both the Generative-AI optimized Hailo-10 and AI-Inferencing optimized Hailo-8.

The device boasts up to 96 GB of DDR5-5600 ECC RAM, 20 PCIe Gen 4 lanes, four 4K display outputs, and dual USB4 ports capable of 40 Gbps bandwidth. This modular approach extends to compatibility with the Bedrock family’s ecosystem, supporting various Networking & I/O boards, Storage & Extension boards, and Power Modules.
