On August 5, AMD announced a strategic cooperation with ECARX. The two parties will work together to build an in-vehicle computing platform for next-generation electric vehicles (EV), which is expected to be mass-produced in the global market by the end of 2023. This digital cockpit from ECARX will be the first in-vehicle platform that uses AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 processors and AMD Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs, combined with ECARX hardware and software.
The two parties will combine ECARX ‘s rich experience in automotive digital cockpit design with AMD’s advanced computing power and excellent visual graphics rendering capabilities to provide an innovative in-vehicle experience. The digital cockpit will feature a variety of advanced features, including a driver information module, head-up display system, rear-seat entertainment, multi-screen display, multi-zone voice recognition, high-end gaming and a full 3D user experience.
The Ryzen Embedded V2000 series processors are the second generation of products designed for automotive in-vehicle infotainment and instrumentation, industrial edge, thin clients and mini computer systems. For customers and applications that require high-performance display capabilities, the Ryzen Embedded V2000 series can simultaneously support up to 4 independent displays with 4K resolution because it is equipped with up to 8 CPU cores and 7 GPU computing units. Compared with the previous generation products, a single AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 series processor provides 2×1 multi-threaded performance per unit power consumption, single-threaded CPU performance increases by up to 30%, and graphics performance increases by up to 40%.
ECARX was jointly funded and established by Li Shufu and Shen Ziyu, the chairman of Geely Holding Group. Since its registration in 2017, the company has provided millions of sets of IoV systems for Geely’s brands and models, becoming the largest IoV in mass production. one of the suppliers.
