AMD has introduced its second-generation Ryzen Pro and Athlon Pro mobile processors for notebooks. Both mobile processors include Radeon Vega Graphics.
The second-gen Ryzen Pro processors succeed AMD's previous Ryzen Pro mobile processors which were installed in HP's EliteBook 705 G5 and ProBook 645 G4 series of laptops, unveiled early last year. AMD claims the 12nm-based Ryzen PRO 3000 series offers an up to 16% boost in terms of multi-threading processor performance compared to Intel's chipsets.
Here's the full lineup of the new mobile processors from AMD:
|Thermal design power||Boost/Base Freq.||GPU Cores||Max GPU Freq.||L2+L3 Cache|
|Ryzen 7 PRO 3700U||4C/8T||15W||4.0/2.3GHz||10||1400MHz||6MB|
|Ryzen 5 PRO 3500U||4C/8T||15W||3.7/2.1GHz||8||1200MHz||6MB|
|Ryzen 3 PRO 3300U||4C/4T||15W||3.5/2.1GHz||6||1200MHz||6MB|
|Athlon PRO 300U||2C/4T||15W||3.3/2.4GHz||3||1000MHz||5MB|
Saeid Moshkelani, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Client Compute at AMD, said:
“Modern PC users expect the experience between professional and personal to be imperceptible, and business notebook users want to utilize the latest modern features including 3D modeling, video editing, multi-display setups while multitasking securely, to get more done. With AMD Ryzen PRO and Athlon PRO mobile processors, AMD delivers the right performance, features, and choice to OEMs and commercial users, combined with the productivity, protection, and professional features needed to ensure seamless deployment throughout an organization.”
The semiconductor giant also said the fresh lineup can power notebooks with up to 12 hours of battery life for office use or up to 10 hours of video playback. The chips also include AMD’s built-in security co-processor.
The new processors will be used to power HP and Lenovo's commercial notebooks set for debut in the second quarter of 2019. Later this year, AMD promises to bring the mobile processors to other OEMs and roll out further platform updates.
