SimplyNUC, a maker of ultra-compact form-factor (UCFF) PCs, has introduced its first PCs that use AMD’s Ryzen Embedded processors. The Sequoia units are rugged commercial systems designed for applications like edge data analytics, electronic kiosks, and digital signage that can withstand up to 95% of relative humidity as well as temperatures as high as 60°C.

SimplyNUC will offer two versions of its Sequoia UCFF systems: the Sequoia v6 equipped with AMD’s quad-core Ryzen V1605B processor with AMD Radeon Vega 8 graphics, 4 GB of memory, and a 128 GB SSD. Meanwhile the Sequoia v8 is powered by AMD’s quad-core Ryzen V1807B processor with AMD Radeon Vega 11 graphics, 4 GB of DDR4 RAM, and 128 GB SSD. As always with SimplyNUC PCs, the Sequoia computers can be tailor-made in accordance with requirements of a particular client.

UPDATE 11/15: AMD's Ryzen V1605B is a quad-core processor that was incorrectly called a dual-core CPU by the PC maker.

Being flexible systems aimed at a wide range of applications, all SimplyNUC Sequoia UCFF PCs feature very extensive connectivity, which includes Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5, optional 4G/LTE modem, two GbE ports (controlled using Intel’s i210-LM), two Mini DisplayPort outputs, Serial RS-232/Serial RS-485 video outputs, an optional microSD card reader, and several USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports.


When sold in default configurations, SimplyNUC’s Sequoia v6 will cost £445, whereas the Sequoia v8 is to be priced at £560. Since we are talking about embedded systems, the manufacturer guarantees a seven-year supply for the computers (starting from November 2019) and will offer them with warranty options of up to five years.

    ASRock desk mini a300w. Drop in a 3000 series ryzen and go.

    The 3xxx APUs are Zen+, not Zen2. Thanks for the confusing naming, AMD.

    But yes, I just put together a system using the A300w and it's a beast for what it is. It's surprisingly quiet even under heavy load and it seems to be more tolerant of RAM not on the QVL than other AM4 systems I've built.

    Thanks, Oh650r and kaidenshi, for pointing me to ASRock. says that the A300 series supports the 3400G and 3400GE. Those are Zen 2 chips, right? I know they're not the highest-performance chips in the lineup, but still.

    Those are Zen+ cpu's. Like mentioned above AMD really screwed the pooch with the naming conventions.

    that thing is MASSIVE compared to a NUC Like

    There are no APU's with Zen 2 yet, so I doubt it.
  • Foeketijn - Friday, November 15, 2019 - link

    I guess AMD is really throwing everything they can at producing enough zen2 chips to put in the higher margin products. And don't have time to make Zen 2 APU's or embedded procs. I just sold a asrock AM4 server because I can't wait any longer for a Zen 2 embedded Epyc. I would go for AMD NUC's if they where Zen 2. And I sell quite some Intel NUC's in a year.

    Zen2 APU's are scheduled to be released Q1 2020 under the 4000 series naming convention.

    There's a 512gb ssd limitation? What?
  • 1_rick - Thursday, November 14, 2019 - link

    At a guess, it's due to the M.2 only taking 2242. (If there are any 2242 drives bigger than 512GB I don't think I've heard of them.)
