PC OEMs introduce products with AMD Ryzen PRO Mobile
Chip designer’s latest processors featured in Dell Latitude, HP Elite, and Lenovo Think designs
Chip maker AMD has announced its Ryzen PRO processors have been adopted in new notebooks and desktops powered with built-in Radeon Vega graphics.
AMD has joined hand with PC OEMs Dell, HP, and Lenovo to create a range of business systems, from sleek enterprise notebooks to powerful commercial desktops.
According to the CPU manufacturer, Ryzen PRO APUs for premium commercial desktop and notebooks provide commercial PC buyers with new levels of choice and innovation.
"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[i] 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, AMD said.
"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 and 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."
Lorena Kubera, global head, Commercial Product Management, HP Inc, added that: "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."
Jerry Paradise, vice president, Lenovo global commercial portfolio and product management, said: "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."
Paradise explained that expanding that portfolio to include the latest Ryzen PRO processors in the ThinkPad A series notebooks and ThinkCentre M715q and M725s desktops helps Lenovo to further support its enterprise customers and their ever-evolving business requirements."
Roanne Sones, general manager, strategy and ecosystem for Windows at Microsoft, said 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. "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," said Sones.
