The original Smach Z and its Ultra and Pro versions have been slated to use AMD’s Ryzen Embedded V1605B chip, which combines four Zen cores with eight Vega Cores. Nonetheless, the plans have modified as the Smach Crew has recently declared that the handheld system will feature the flagship V1807B part instead.
Though V1605B and V1807B are four-core, eight-thread processors, the latter claims significantly higher operating clocks, the V1605B has a 2 GHz base clock and 3.6 GHz boost clock. The V1807B, alternatively, features a 3.35 GHz base clock and 3.8 GHz boost clock. Nonetheless, the most useful improvement resides in the graphics area.
The V1605B comes geared up with Radeon Vega 8 graphics, which means it has eight Compute Units (CUs) operating at 1,100 MHz. The V1807B has a stringer Radeon RX Vega 11 graphics solution. The 11 CUs operate at 1,300 MHz. The two extra CUs and 200 MHz clocks enhance ought to considerably help improve graphics efficiency on Smach Z.
The only hint with having a more powerful processor is the warmth and power consumption. The V1605B has a configurable TDP (thermal design power) between 12W to 25W. Naturally, the V1807B comes with higher values, 35W to 54W to be precise.
With the processor aside, the Smach Z may also be receiving memory and storage upgrades. The brand new and enhanced version can house as much as 32GB of DDR4-2133 memory and 480GB of solid-state storage.
The Smach Group did not specify in the media release how much.
