Earlier this month, we saw Lenovo pull the wraps off a new ThinkBook S family of consumer laptops and today we're witnessing the launch of a revised family of ThinkPad business laptops. The new laptops include the ThinkPad X395, T495 and T495s, with the "5" at the end of the name representing that these are machines powered by AMD processors. ThinkPad X395 Whereas the ThinkPad X390 makes use of 8th generation Intel Core processors, the ThinkPad X395 is available with up to 2nd generation AMD Ryzen 7 Pro mobile processors backed by Radeon Vega graphics. You'll find a 13.3-inch Full HD display framed with thin bezels and support for up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and up to a 1TB NVMe... Read more...
AMD is expanding its Pro family of processors with the introduction of new Ryzen Pro Mobile and Athlon Pro Mobile processors which come backed by Radeon Vega graphics. All of the processors are based on the 12nm process node, with the Athlon Pro 300U taking up the low-end of the segment with a dual-core/quad-thread setup, while the range-topping Ryzen 7 Pro counters with 4 cores and 8 threads. As with its other "Pro" branded processor offerings, AMD is targeting commercial customers that demand high levels of security, reliability and manageability for the notebook fleets. AMD introduced its Ryzen Pro 2000 Series processors in May of 2018, and the follow-up Ryzen Pro 3000 Series is... Read more...
Earlier this year, AMD expanded its processor family with new second-generation Ryzen processors based on 12nm Pinnacle Ridge architecture. AMD first started off with consumer-level Ryzen 2000 series processors, and then moved on to the new Ryzen Threadripper 2000 series processors (topping out with the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX featuring 32 cores and 64 threads). It's now time for AMD's second-generation Ryzen PRO processors, which compete directly with Intel's vPro lineup. Like before, the Ryzen PRO processors put an emphasis on integrated security and encryption features that are favored by business customers. The new models include the Ryzen PRO 2600, 2700 and 2700X.... Read more...
Today marks the official launch of AMD’s latest additions to the Ryzen Pro family, which include new processors with integrated Radeon Vega graphics. AMD has released Ryzen Pro APUs for both desktop and mobile form-factors, and all include features specifically geared towards business customers.  With AMD's new Ryzen Pro offerings, you’ll find security-centric features like AMD GuardMI Technology with on-chip DRAM memory encryption, secure boot, fTPM/TPM 2.0, and what the company calls “enterprise-grade” reliability. On that latter point, AMD is guaranteeing a stable supply of chips for its enterprise customers, with at least 18 months of software updates, two... Read more...
HP unveiled a handful of new business-class laptops today, all of which sport AMD Ryzen Pro mobile processors with onboard Radeon Vega graphics underneath the hood. The new offerings falls under the EliteBook 700 G5 and ProBook 600 G4 product banners, which are available in a variety of sizes and configurations. These are all premium built laptops with relatively thin and light designs. Starting with the former, HP's new EliteBook 735 G5 is a 13.3-inch laptop with a Full HD 1080p IPS display. It's offered with three different processor options, those being an AMD Ryzen 3 2300U, Ryzen 5 2500U, or Ryzen 7 2700U, along with up to 32GB of DDR4-2400 RAM. There are multiple storage options as well,... Read more...
Back in late June, AMD announced that it would be rolling out a Ryzen Pro line of CPUs aimed at desktops in the professional workplace. Today is the day that products with Ryzen Pro inside launch and AMD counts some of the biggest names in the computer industry as partners with workstations and desktops from Dell, Lenovo, and HP coming. AMD's Kevin Lensing spent a bit of time laying out what AMD is cooking up with Ryzen Pro noting that this is part of AMD's "return to innovation for high-performance PCs." Ryzen Pro is a commercial CPU for AMD with the consumer Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5, and Ryzen 3 parts having previously launched. The Ryzen part that computer enthusiasts are most excited about are...

Yesterday, AMD announced its new Ryzen PRO family of processors, which feature the multi-core performance muscle of the Zen microarchitecture along with built-in security features. AMD has already begun shipping the new processors to its OEM partners, and one of the first to deploy Ryzen PRO will be Hewlett-Packard via its EliteDesk 705 G3 workstation family. HP is making it easy to choose a system that fits your performance (and budgetary) needs by offering the full lineup of Ryzen PRO processors ranging from the lowly Ryzen 3 PRO 1200 on up to the incredibly potent Ryzen 7 PRO 1700X, which features 8 cores and 16 threads with base and boost clocks of 3.4GHz and 3.8GHz respectively. If Ryzen... Read more...
AMD first introduced us to its 14nm Zen family of processors with the Ryzen 7 lineup, and later with Ryzen 5. Up until this point, AMD has been relatively mum about its upcoming Ryzen 3 processors, which will be positioned against Intel’s Core i3 series. However, AMD may have revealed its hand earlier this morning with the announcement of Ryzen PRO. Take a quick look at the chart below to see how the Ryzen PRO family stacks up: As you can see, the lineup largely mirrors that of the standard Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 processors, matching in clock speeds, core counts, TDP and cache sizes. For example, the Ryzen 5 PRO 1500’s 3.5GHz base clock and 3.7GHz Turbo match up perfectly with the Ryzen 5 1500X.... Read more...
AMD has been on a tear lately. After all of the hype and anticipation, AMD's Zen architecture has proven to be the real deal, and not just on the desktop. Last week saw the launch of AMD's EPYC 7000 series processors for data center servers, and now the chip designer is formally introducing its Ryzen PRO lineup. In case it its not clear at this point, Zen is a multi-headed threat that is intent on competing with Intel in virtually every market segment. In this case, AMD's Rzyen PRO desktop chips are tweaked versions of the company's consumer-based Ryzen processors, with the PRO parts taking aim at Intel's vPro lineup. What really makes the PRO processors stand out from regular Ryzen chips is... Read more...
Earlier this week AMD talked about its mobile strategy with regards to Ryzen and said that we can expect a variety of Zen-powered laptops starting in the third quarter of this year. Picking up where AMD left off, ASUS and its Republic of Gamers division posted a teaser video giving us a shadowed look at what will presumably be its first gaming laptop with Ryzen inside. The video is short on details, but big on hype. It shows a laptop with the ROG logo on the lid, with the Ryzen logo serving as the backdrop. As the logo and laptop come into partial view, the words "Something has awakened" get scribbled underneath. And in the video's description on YouTube, ASUS writes, "Something BIG is coming...

AMD made a flurry of announcements this evening during its Financial Analyst Day presentation, one of which includes new mobile solutions that pairs the company's Ryzen CPU architecture with its forthcoming Vega GPU architecture. Or put another way, AMD is readying its first Zen-based mobile APU (accelerated processing unit) with on-die Vega graphics, both for desktops and laptops.Click to EnlargeWe're still in the process of gathering information, but here is what we know so far. Compared to AMD's 7th generation APUs, Ryzen Mobile will up the CPU performance ante by 50 percent while offering 40 percent better graphics performance. Those gains will not come at the expense of battery life, either—AMD... Read more...
