Premium graphics helps employees drive 4K displays for additional screen real estate, accelerate media playback for smooth video and speeds up creative tasks. With a Ryzen™ PRO mobile processor with Radeon™ Vega Graphics experience up to 36% faster photo editing, 64% faster 3D modeling and 258% faster medical visualization over the competition.2,3

 

Get More Portable

No power outlets available? No Problem. Notebooks powered by Ryzen™ PRO and Athlon™ PRO processors are designed for the 9-5 workday. Get up to 12 hours of general office use or up to 10 hours of video playback with the AMD Ryzen™ PRO 7 3700U processor. 4

 

Get More Security Features

The global average cost of a data device breach is $3.86 Million.5 Ryzen™ PRO processors help protect against malicious data attacks from the moment of power-on with Secure Boot, lock down Windows 10 enterprise systems with Microsoft Device Guard enhanced with AMD GuardMI technology and help defend against attack to your system RAM (aka Cold Boot Attacks) with memory encryption. AMD Ryzen™ PRO and Athlon™ PRO processors is the only processor family with full memory encryption as a standard security feature. 6

 

Get More Pro Options

With AMD PRO processors we don’t force you to purchase premium more expensive solutions to get the security and professional features that enterprises need. So whether you want a Ryzen PRO 7, 5, 3 or Athlon Pro processors, you can choose the right performance level you need for your business without sacrificing on enterprise security and manageability features.

*AMD has not independently verified this information.

What type of computer user would you consider yourself?

  • Are you an entry-level user that just needs their computer for basic word processing or web browsing?
  • Are you a mainstream user that will do all the above plus some light content creation, spreadsheet analysis or heavy multi-tasking?
  • Or are you a power-user that needs premium performance for software development, VR or 3D modeling?

 

Regardless of whichever type of user you identify with, you need a computing system that matches your performance requirements. With the launch of the AMD Athlon™ PRO and 2nd Gen Ryzen™ PRO processors, AMD offers a complete top to bottom stack of commercial-grade desktop processors designed for each of these types of users.

Performance for Commercial Desktop User Workloads

The 2nd Gen Ryzen™ PRO desktop processors have been amped up from the 1st Gen Ryzen PRO CPUs, moving to the 12nm process and improved “zen+” architecture. The 2nd Gen Ryzen PRO processors also feature the latest Precision Boost 2 and XFR2 technology3 to allow these CPUs to reach even higher clock speeds than their predecessors. This ultimately means 2nd Gen Ryzen PRO CPUs are generationally faster and continue to provide leading multi-threaded performance versus the competition.1

The Athlon™ PRO 200GE desktop processor is designed to target entry-level users. This CPU combines the modern “Zen” core architecture with premium Radeon™ Vega graphics to provide the reliable and responsive performance entry-level users need for tasks from word processing, web browsing to video conferencing.2

Reliability, Manageability & Security for all user workloads

In enterprise environments, Security and Reliability is critical regardless of whether you’re an entry-level or power user. That’s why all AMD Ryzen™ PRO and Athlon™ PRO processors support the same reliability and manageability features (such as 18 month image stability and DASH manageability) and security features (such as Transparent secure memory encryption and Secure boot process) demanded by IT professionals.

Slide6.jpg

 

Desktop System from the leading OEMs

So where can you get a desktop system with these new processors? The 2nd Gen Ryzen PRO and Athlon PRO 200GE model will be available with the major global OEMs including Dell, HP and Lenovo systems, dependent on respective OEM launch schedules4, so you can choose the right solution you need regardless if you’re an entry-level, mainstream or power-user.

The 14” Dell Latitude 5495 is a mobile workstation designed for work on the go. Powered by a 4 core, 8 thread AMD Ryzen™ Pro processor, you can multi-task through several productivity applications at the same time. The Ryzen Pro processor also features the premium Radeon™ Vega Graphics to handle visually demanding tasks such as graphics design

 

Here is the system configuration for the unit I’m testing (Your configuration may vary. Contact your Dell sales representative for an up-to-date configuration list)or 3D rendering. This professionally styled business laptop fits in any office environment and speeds through your work day.

  • AMD Ryzen™ 5 PRO 2500U processor with Radeon™ Vega 8 Graphics (Also available with Ryzen 7 PRO and Ryzen 3 PRO processor configurations)
  • 14 Inch, 1920x1080 Display
  • 16GB DDR4 memory
  • 512GB SSD
  • 68WHr Battery

 

 

Utilitarian Professional Design:

The Dell Latitude 5495 is designed to fit any business environment with its simple clean design and matte black color scheme. I find this laptop very portable with its 14 inch screen and measures in at about 13.1” x 9.0” x 0.9” (229mm x 333mm x 22mm) and weighs 1.75 kg, which is perfect size and weight to store in my laptop bag.

 

While this laptop is portable, it still retains the typical connectors I would need during my typical work day. The left side of the laptop includes a USB Type-C, USB Type-A, SD card reader and smartcard reader.

P1011581.jpg

On the back side you’ll find the Ethernet, HDMI, a second USB Type-A and power connector.

P1011582.jpg

And finally, on the right side there’s a headphone jack, third USB Type-A, VGA connector and a Noble Wedge Lock slot. The Dell Latitude 5495 has pretty much every connection I require without me needing to carry additional adapters.

P1011583.jpg

 

 

Performance Underneath the Hood:

The Dell Latitude 5495 I’m testing here uses an AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 2500U processor but it’s also available in Ryzen 3 and 7 options. Combined with the premium Radeon Vega Graphics, the Dell Latitude is ready to handle everything from word processing to content creation.

Chart.jpg

 

All Day Battery Life:

Battery life is critical to me unless I plan on being plugged in all day long. For battery testing I ran the MobileMark 2014 Office Productivity test on my unit, which is configured with a 68WHr battery, AMD Ryzen 5 PRO Mobile 2500U processor and a 1080p touch screen. The resulting score I got was 615 minutes for the battery life. That’s over 10 hours of battery, which is more than enough to get me through an entire day of work without needing to recharge.

 

 

Security and Manageability:

The AMD Ryzen PRO processors are based on the same powerful “Zen” core architecture found in consumer laptops and desktops but these PRO variants are built with an emphasis on reliability, and offer additional security and manageability features.

For extra security, the Dell Latitude 5495 uses the Ryzen Pro processor’s Secure Boot feature to verify only authorized drivers and operating system are running on the laptop to prevent threats right from power on.

For IT professionals needing to manage a fleet of laptops, they can easily do so with DASH manageability support on Ryzen Pro processors. This allows IT professionals to manage, monitor, and deploy multiple computer systems easily.

 

So that’s a quick look at the Dell Latitude 5495 laptop powered by AMD Ryzen™ PRO processors with Radeon™ Vega graphics; A laptop that delivers serious performance, security and reliability.
