AMD announces Ryzen Pro chip family

Nonetheless, SVP of the Computing and Graphics Group at AMD, Jim Anderson, stated that the new CPU’s is a part of the company’s important step in their journey to bring excitement and innovation back to the PC universe.While the processors are set to create some stir in the market, the company also promises that the new technology will deliver breakthrough responsiveness for the most demanding enterprise-class applications and multi-tasking workflows.AMD’s Ryzen Pro line doesn’t scrimp on power, offering a 52% improvement in compute capabilities over the previous generation, the company explained. More significantly the RyzenTM 7 PRO 1700 offers up to 62 percent more multi-threaded performance than select competing solutions. They include additional security processes that run directly on the silicon, which means that Ryzen processors will offer encryption that’s independent of the operating system they’re running. “It has the manageability features that you need for commercial applications built into it as well”.Six Ryzen Pro processors. based on 14nm fabrication, are available, starting with the Ryzen 3 Pro 1200, which features four cores and the same number of threads with a maximum clock speed of 3.4Ghz, and ends with the Ryzen 7 Pro 1700X, an eight core chip with 16 threads and a boosted clock speed of 3.8Ghz.Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!The new Ryzen Pro CPUs, unveiled on Thursday, follow a familiar model of adding security and remote management features to the consumer version of the processors.But AMD is also launching competitor products across the board, with an all-new Ryzen Pro 3 chip specifically targeting the commercial market, with enterprise-level products aimed at being ideal for SMBs and even government and education use.Targeted for enterprise and public sector implementations, Ryzen PRO processors have been created to offer state-of-the-art silicon-level security, providing hardware-based cryptographic and security technologies to help protect against an ever-growing number of threats.According to AMD, ‘the world’s largest suppliers of commercial client desktops are expected to provide Ryzen Pro-based PCs for businesses worldwide,’ a far cry from the days of the company being locked out of the market by the Windows-Intel (WinTel) duopoly.Each chip is created to compete directly with an equivalent processor from Intel’s lineup (the Ryzen 7 Pro goes head to head with the Core i7, and so on).
