AMD announced last Monday (14) seven new Ryzen Pro processors, intended primarily for desktop and notebook professional profile. The models are divided into four desktop products and three laptop versions, all with second-generation architecture and integrated Vega graphics processor – which strengthens products against competitors’ Intel options.
The manufacturer also talked about the development of the second generation of Threadripper, which comes on the market in the second half. For now, the manufacturer did not disclose information regarding the price of the news.
here are three new Ryzen Pro notebooks, the Ryzen 3 Pro 2300U being the simplest on the list. The model has four cores, without SMT (the “Hyper-Threading” of AMD ), six computational units of the graphics card and speed that oscillates between 2.5 and 3.4 GHz.
A little above is the Ryzen 5 Pro 2500U, which is also quad-core, but has SMT enabled, and can act as an octa-core in certain situations. The number of graphics processing units also rises to eight and speeds are between 2.0 and 3.6 GHz.
Finally, the Ryzen 7 Pro 2700U, with the same four cores and SMT activated, has as great differential the reinforcement of the GPU, which adds 10 computational units. Speeds are also higher, ranging from 2.2 to 3.8 GHz. According to AMD, the Pro 2700U is 22% faster than the Core i7 8550U, Intel’s premium model for notebooks at the moment.
It is worth remembering that because they are aimed at notebooks, processors cannot be purchased separately – unlike desktop models. According to AMD, manufacturers such as Dell, HP and Lenovo are expected to present products with these processors over the next few days.
