AMD Launches Ryzen Pro Mobile CPUs

As well as revealing the initial details about its Ryzen 2 and new Ryzen mobile processors at CES in Las Vegas, AMD also took the wraps off its first Ryzen Pro mobile CPUs.

Targeted at business laptops and 'commercial ultra-thin' models as well as workstations, AMD has three new processors which come with integrated Radeon Vega Graphics: the Ryzen 3 Pro 2300U, Ryzen 5 Pro 2500U and the Ryzen 7 Pro 2700U. In terms of core specs, they mirror the respective consumer versions of these chips.

So the entry-tier Ryzen 3 Pro CPU is a quad-core (four-thread) model clocked at up to 3.4GHz with boost, with integrated Vega Graphics boasting six graphics compute units and a GPU clock of up to 1100MHz.

Stepping up to the Ryzen 5 Pro, this is a quad-core (eight-thread) CPU clocked at up to 3.6GHz, with Vega Graphics offering eight graphics compute units and the same GPU clock speed as the Ryzen 3 Pro offering.

At the top of the tree is the Ryzen 7 Pro, which is also a quad-core (eight-thread) processor clocked at up to 3.8GHz, with the integrated Vega Graphics having 10 graphics compute units and a GPU clock of up to 1300MHz. All these processors have a TDP of 15W.

Pro Performance

To give you an idea of ballpark performance, AMD claims that according to its own benchmarking using PCMark 10, the Ryzen 7 Pro is around 22% faster than Intel?EU?s Core i7-8550U for productivity tasks.

And for graphics performance, going by 3DMark 11 benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 Pro is around 125% faster than that Intel processor.

The company also said it was targeting up to 13.5 hours battery life with the Ryzen 7 Pro CPU, with that estimation based on using a notebook with a 50Wh battery.

And of course 'state-of-the-art' security is promised with these chips, as you...
