These past few months have been a whirlwind of activity with the launch of the AMD Ryzen™ processor line. With each announcement, the frenetic energy felt among our teams at AMD has paled in comparison to the levels of excitement we received from businesses, consumers, and enthusiasts alike. Your enthusiasm and voice is what drives us to challenge the status quo and build innovative new products. That is why today I am proud to support the launch and adoption of our new enterprise solutions built around AMD Ryzen™ PRO desktop processors.
I’m often asked, “What makes Ryzen PRO processors unique?” Ryzen PRO processors are directed toward the enterprise and public sectors and are based on three key principles: reliability, security, and performance. These principles benefit customers in many ways.
- Planned 18-month image stability enables smarter, simpler IT image deployment
- Planned 24-month processor availability which allows for multi-year PC fleet renewal planning and smarter investment
- Commercial-grade quality provides exceptional dependability achieved by identifying manufacturing variability and sourcing AMD PRO and Ryzen PRO products from wafers with the highest yields helping ensure high quality parts
- GuardMI technology, in every Ryzen PRO processor, integrates a state-of-the-art, power-on to power-off, silicon-level security feature that helps protect users from an ever-increasing number of threats.
- SenseMI technology and up to eight cores and 16 threads provide exceptional multitasking capability
When paired with an efficient Radeon™ discrete graphics card, AMD powered PCs provide a solid, future-ready computing platform designed for longevity and rapid responsiveness for demanding enterprise-class applications and multitasking workflows including enterprise VR applications.
While the Ryzen PRO processor can be found sitting in the driver’s seat of a system, we have teamed with top PC vendors in the industry, including Dell, HP, and Lenovo, to enable a new level of performance and enhance the overall user experience. Availability of the new business-class desktop PCs featuring AMD Ryzen PRO processors are expected soon, including:
- Dell Optiplex 5055 desktop PCs
- HP EliteDesk 705 desktop PCs
- Lenovo ThinkCentre M715
In addition, Lenovo ThinkPad A475 and A275 notebook PCs featuring 7th Gen AMD PRO processors are expected in Q4 2017.
See how some of our customers are incorporating Ryzen PRO processors in their latest projects below:
- Schneider Digital - Helping Engineer Ultimate Hardware for 3d Creations
- Jellyfish Pictures - Make the Ordinary Extraordinary
- Kearney Clinic - Helping Provide Advanced Healthcare with Exceptional Technology
- Qarnot - Helping Distribute A Greener Cloud In Smarter Buildings
- 42 - Helping Disrupt Engineering Education
Not to be overlooked, the Ryzen PRO APUs are scheduled to be launched in the first half of 2018 – we can’t wait to share more.
