AMD has announced its new Ryzen Pro 5000 series mobile processors that will compete with the Intel vPro platform. The new Zen-3 chipsets are intended for thin and light business notebooks and will offer “uncompromising performance and battery life,” says AMD.
The Ryzen Pro 5000 series chipsets feature similar specs to the Ryzen 5000 chipsets. This includes the new eight-core Ryzen 7 Pro 5850 with 16 threads and 20MB cache. The chip has a base frequency of 1.9GHz and will boost up to 4.4GHz. The new line includes the only thin and light notebook processors that use eight high-performance cores.
Aside from the Ryzen 7 Pro, the brand has also released the Ryzen 5 Pro 5650U with six cores and 12 threads, along with the Ryzen 3 Pro 5450U which has four cores and eight threads. All three chips have 15W TDP.
For businesses, the new chips will offer new security features, including the shadow stack, which is designed to protect systems against malware. The chips also feature AMD’s Pro Manageability platform, which includes “full spectrum manageability features.”
AMD has also stated that the new chips will offer deeper integration with Microsoft and OEMs for better security and that PCs using the chips will be certified for FIPS encryption. The Ryzen Pro 5000 series will also be compatible with Microsoft’s Endpoint Manager, a platform that enables IT workers to manage multiple PCs, servers, and other devices.
The new AMD Ryzen Pro 5000 Series chipsets will soon be seen in laptops by HP and Lenovo. Brand-revealed variants include the HP Elitebook 845 G8, the HP Probook Aero 635 G2 (AMD exclusive), the HP Probook x360 435 G8 (AMD exclusive), the Lenovo Thinkbook 16P (AMD exclusive), the Lenovo Thinkbook. 14S and the Lenovo Thinkpad T14S.
