AMD Ryzen PRO to Drive the Wheels of Change Across Enterprises

4 5 8,172

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.

  • Ryzen PRO logo.JPGPlanned 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:

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:

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.

John, many thanks for sharing this info! Is there going to be a PRO version of Threadripper? As someone who works in the creative industries who also needs to reliably work with confidential data, and also happen to need the crazy amount of PCIe lanes, I understand if it would be a bit too niche - I can feel an EPYC recommendation coming up (no pun intended ) but we are looking to scale productivity with each workstation brought in rather than focusing investments in servers. Of which we do have, of course!

Thank you for this interesting information.
I will make sure  to pass on this post to my friends and colleagues who work in IT.
I am interested to know if there will be a Pro version of Threadripper or is that the role EPYC  fills at the momemt?



Thank you for the feedback!  We are certainly seeing increased interest in AMD in the Workstation market.  AMD Ryzen Threadripper delivers truly disruptive levels of performance on a wide range of professional applications. To deliver this performance in a range of workstation platforms, AMD socketTR4 motherboard partners today enable workstation features like validated ECC memory and NVMe RAID. Additionally, many workstation system integrators now offer AMD Ryzen Threadripper-based workstations to bring leadership performance and I/O advantages to their customers.  We will keep you all informed as this develops further.


Hello all, we've recently added a video summary of our AMD Ryzen PRO launch event in New York.  Please enjoy.

Thank you for your kind information. I have a triple screen infinity setup, and its fine, but for day to day working, I use 2 monitors, and let windows extend the desktop.
