Source: DFIThe Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Ryzen microprocessor has been around for a few years and has been a staple in PCs for gaming and other applications but now it has been ported to the venerable Raspberry Pi from Taiwanese manufacturer DFI.

The DFI GHF51 board features the AMD Ryzen embedded R1000 series with single channel DDR4 memory down up to four or eight GB. Other features include two HDMI 1.4 ports, one mini PCIe, one SMBus, one Intel GbE and one USB 3.1 Gen 2.

The on-board graphics include an AMD Vega GPU with up to three computing units and H.2651 decode/encode support.

Measuring just 84 mm x 55 mm, the tiny Raspberry Pi board could apply to a number of use cases from tinkerers looking to get more power in their designs to engineers looking to develop internet of things (IoT) applications.
