AMD has plans to support a little known chip for at least another 16 years — and no, it is neither a Ryzen, nor a Threadripper or an Epyc CPU

Spartan UltraScale+ is the latest addition to AMD’s extensive portfolio of cost-optimized Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and adaptive SoCs. It has been introduced to replace the Xilinx Spartan 6 and Spartan 7 lines.

The new Spartan UltraScale+ devices are designed for a wide range of I/O-intensive applications at the edge. AMD says its latest FPGAs can deliver up to 30 percent lower total power consumption compared to the previous generation – energy efficiency is a hot topic right now – while boasting the most robust set of security features in the AMD’s cost-optimized portfolio.
