AMD Introduces Broad AMD Ryzen PRO Mobile & Desktop APU Systems for Enterprise

AMD today announced unprecedented adoption of its AMD Ryzen PRO processors - including new notebooks and desktops powered by Ryzen PRO processors with built-in Radeon Vega graphics now available from the world's three largest enterprise PC OEMs. AMD Ryzen PRO APUs for premium commercial desktop and notebooks provide commercial PC buyers with new levels of choice and innovation and enable Dell, HP, and Lenovo to create a range of business systems, from sleek enterprise notebooks to powerful commercial desktops. Combined, these systems make up the broadest portfolio of AMD processor-based enterprise PCs in the company's history.
"Our mission with AMD Ryzen processors is to deliver more performance, features, and choice to users. We've fulfilled this promise over the last year across the premium consumer desktop and notebook markets. Now, we bring those same principles to a full range of commercial notebooks and desktops," said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Business Group, AMD. "The new enterprise platforms introduced by Dell, HP and Lenovo mark an important milestone for AMD, demonstrating that we are addressing the needs of the premium commercial market from top-to-bottom. Ryzen PRO mobile processors can enable all-day battery life up to 16 hours of use, world-class productivity performance, and sensational graphics built on Radeon technology."
Ryzen PRO processors are designed to meet the fast-changing requirements of today's business PC users, including both commercial workloads and rich multimedia capabilities that are becoming more typical as the traditional boundaries between work and personal computing merge. Offering desktop-class performance in an ultrathin notebook[ii], the AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 2700U offers more system performance than the competition[iii] and up to 16 hours of battery life to enable all-day productivity1. In desktop, the AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 2400G and AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 2200G delivers world-class performance on heavily graphics-intensive commercial and workstation-grade workloads ranging from graphics design to 3D CAD to medical imaging, while also excelling at general office productivity tasks.
Designed specifically for the commercial market, all Ryzen PRO processors provide security, reliability and performance with the award-winning AMD "Zen" architecture. Armed with AMD GuardMI technology, Ryzen PRO processors with Radeon Vega Graphics offer state-of-the-art security at the silicon level from power-on to power-off. Commercial-grade quality and reliability help ensure platform longevity, and open-standard manageability helps safeguard businesses from being locked into proprietary solutions.

Global OEM & Partner Support
During an event in front of global press and industry analysts last week, several top global PC OEMs unveiled a breadth of commercial platform offerings including light but powerful enterprise notebooks, robust enterprise desktops, compact enterprise micro towers and small form factor desktops, all powered by Ryzen PRO processors with Radeon Vega Graphics.

"We're proud to introduce our first Ryzen PRO based Latitude 5495 laptop that delivers outstanding performance in a beautiful design," said Andy Rhodes, vice president & general manager, Dell Commercial Mobility Solutions. "The Latitude 5495 complements the OptiPlex 5055 desktop PC and provides our customers with another compelling AMD Ryzen PRO option within the world's most secure, manageable and reliable commercial portfolio."
"HP is redefining the commercial PC experience as the traditional boundaries between work and life blend. Our latest offerings with AMD Ryzen PRO processors integrate powerful processing and graphics into innovative solutions built with a focus on design, security, and collaboration to power the modern workforce." Lorena Kubera, Global Head of Commercial Product Management, HP Inc. "For more than 25 years, the ThinkPad brand has been defined by simplicity, function, and reliability. And as the digital transformation advances with exponential speed, Lenovo maintains a relentless quest to deliver a no-compromise customer experience," said Jerry Paradise, vice president, Lenovo global commercial portfolio & product management. "Expanding that portfolio to include the latest Ryzen PRO processors in our ThinkPad A series notebooks and ThinkCentre M715q & M725s desktops helps us to further support our enterprise customers and their ever-evolving business requirements."

"Modern workers are changing how they work and play - always on-the-go, multi-tasking from basic office productivity work like emailing, word processing, editing spreadsheets and presentations, to web browsing and livestreaming multimedia content all at the same time," said Roanne Sones, general manager, strategy and ecosystem for Windows at Microsoft. "The new multi-core design of Ryzen PRO processors delivers amazing performance on Windows 10 PCs, while the 'Vega' graphics architecture enables a smoother and richer visual experience, ideally suited for today's modern commercial environments."

Man I’d love a Ryzen based laptop. And 15W is damn good for the specs you are getting.

Ok, that's the market they needed a foothold in. High-end desktops may sell in the tens or even hundreds of thousands, but these sell in the millions. Are are much easier binned ;)

Regardless of how one views Ryzen, the real differentiator this time seems to be that, unlike Mr Ruiz, Ms Su actually has a strategy.

If they weren't constantly crippled by BS like:

1) high power consumption of non-APU components (MSI)
2) crappy screen (pretty much all manufacturers)

But there is hope.
