AMD announced today that their Versal HBM adaptive SoCs have entered production for these newest wares with high bandwidth memory.

The Versal adaptive SoCs are designed for roles from AI to edge and cloud applications. These newest SoCs now in production sport HBM2e DRAM to provide a reported 6x more memory bandwidth at up to 65% lower power per bit compared to existing Versal Premium SoCs. AMD is promoting the new SoCs in addition to their performance benefits as offering better power conservation, more PCB flexibility without having to worry about traditional DDR memory, and simpler designs.

Now that the Versal HBM Adaptive SoCs have entered production, AMD has started selling the VHK158 Evaluation Kit for engineers to begin experimenting with the new SoCs. The evaluation kit features 32GB of HBM memory, 112G PAM4 transceivers, PCIe Gen5x8 and PCIe Gen4x16, two DDR4-3200 DIMM slots, and a dual core Arm Cortex-A72 as its application processors. This evaluation kit will set you back though $14,995 USD and there is a current 19 week lead time.
