AMD announces Ryzen PRO 4000 series mobile processors
The AMD Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors were launched sometime back with some absolutely chart-topping performance, and now they are bringing it to the business notebook segment with the AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 series mobile processors. AMD Ryzen PRO processors bring with them PRO-exclusive features like improved security, manageability and extended platform longevity. The features include:
- AMD PRO security: Multi-layered approach embedding defenses at every level, from silicon through operating system and system level security features. AMD Memory Guard, exclusive to AMD Ryzen PRO processors, helps enable data and identity protection.
- AMD PRO manageability: Enabling a full manageability feature set for simplified deployment, imaging and management that is compatible with modern IT infrastructures. AMD Ryzen PRO processors offer full support for Microsoft Endpoint Manager to deliver a flexible and integrated cloud management solution.
- AMD PRO business ready: Enterprise-grade computing solution designed for quality and reliability, in addition to platform longevity. AMD Ryzen PRO processors feature 18-months of planned software stability and 24-months of planned availability
The AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 series will bring up to 2x performance per watt over the previous generation and deliver more battery life in the same ultra-sleek form factors. They will also offer up to 33% better multi-threaded performance than the competition, with up to eight cores and sixteen threads. The following are the specifications for the new AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 series mobile processors:
AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 Series Mobile Processors Specs
|AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U||AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U||AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 4450U|
|Base Clocks/Boost Clocks||1.7 / 4.1 GHz||2.1 / 4.0 GHz||2.5 / 3.7 GHz|
|GPU||7 CU @ 1600 MHz||6 CU @ 1500 MHz||5 CU @ 1400 MHz|
It’s worth noting that with the exception of the AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U which appears to a Ryzen 5 4600U with additional PRO features, the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U and Ryzen 3 4350U are entirely new SKUs to the product stack. So far it seems like the only major partner working AMD to bring the AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 series processors to the market is Lenovo, with a bevy of thin and light designs featuring the new processors.
However we wouldn’t rule out the other laptop makers to offer AMD Ryzen PRO-based laptops this generation, as they do offer great competition to Intel’s offerings.
Pokdepinion: I hope we will see an ASUS ExpertBook with the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U!
