Last night, AMD released EPYC 7003 series processors with Zen3 architecture with up to 64 cores and 128 threads, once again leading the field of data center, cloud computing, and high-performance computing.
Today, AMD Zen3 family officially ushered in a new member——The Ryzen PRO 5000U series is designed for thin and light business notebooks.

Basically, it can be regarded as the business version of the previously released Ryzen 5000 U series, which adds more security and management features, and is more suitable for corporate office environments.
The enterprise business field is a very large market, especially business notebooks. The growth is gratifying due to various factors such as remote office work due to the epidemic. In 2018, the global scale was only 21 million units. In 2020, it will reach 47 million units. 6.3% soared all the way to 16.2%, and it is expected to reach 63 million units in 2021.
In the past few years, AMD has also quietly cultivated its layout in the business market. It has gained a lot and formed a complete product line. It has the Ryzen PRO series for notebooks and desktops, the Ryzen and Athlon series for ChromeBook, and the workstations. Thread tearer PRO series.
The latest Ryzen PRO 5000 series is also based on the 7nm process and the new Zen3 architecture, with leading performance, energy efficiency, safety, and management, and is known as the world’s best commercial mobile processor.
AMD provides three models this time, namelyRyzen 7 PRO 5850U, Ryzen 5 PRO 5650U, Ryzen 3 PRO 5450U.
They are on the hardware specificationsReproduced Ryzen 7 5800U, Ryzen 5 5600U, and Ryzen 3 5400U respectively., Up to 8 cores and 16 threads, up to 4.4GHz frequency, up to 20MB L2/L2 cache, up to 8 core AMD Radeon Graphics, thermal design power consumption is 15W, OEMs can flexibly configure up to 25W and as low as 10W.
As for the consumer-grade Ryzen 7 5700U, Ryzen 5 5500U, and Ryzen 3 5300U, they are actually Zen2 architectures, and there is no corresponding PRO version this time.
In terms of performance, take the flagship Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U as an example.AMD claims that compared to the highest-end i7-1185G7 of the Intel Tiger Lake 11th generation Core, CineBench R20 single-threaded performance is 3% weaker, but with double the number of core threads, CineBench R20, PCMark 10, GeekBench v5 and other multi-threaded test projects, It can lead by as little as 48%, as much as 65%, and it can crush the general existence.
And don’t forget, iThe thermal design power consumption of 7-1185G7 is 28W, almost twice as highTherefore, even in terms of single-core energy efficiency, Ryzen is far ahead.
In terms of office performance, the Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U can also lead by up to 23%, and the worst can also be flat.
even,Even if AMD sent a low-end Ryzen 5 PRO 5650U to compare i7-1185G7, with more than half of the core, multi-threading performance continues to kill, and office performance is still leading.
For business office scenarios, multi-person meetings and multi-tasking are commonplace, especially during the epidemic. AMD also showed that the Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U can handle the 49-person Zoom video conference and PCMark 10 office test at the same time. The result is still up to 10% faster than the i7-1185G7.
In terms of battery life, although the craftsmanship of the Ryzen PRO 5000 series has not changed, but with a new architecture, MobileMark test shows that it can achieve up to 17.5 hours of battery life Which can guarantee all-day office needs. Compared with the previous generation, it has increased by 2 hours, which is a radical change compared with the previous generation.
Of course, for commercial products, performance is only one of them, and safety is also very important. In addition to the complete inheritance of various security technologies of the previous generation, the Ryzen PRO 5000 series also adds three new functions:
One isAMD Shadow Stack, Based on hardware-level security protection, it can directly resist malware attacks.
two isSecured Core PC, Working closely with Microsoft and OEM manufacturers and deep integration to ensure the security of Windows PCs.
Three isFIPS, The security encryption standard certified by the US Federal Government is one of the best ways to protect privacy.
In terms of management,Ryzen PRO 5000 provides IT managers and administrators with a series of tools and capabilities, which can seamlessly access the new platform in the existing infrastructure, and supports Microsoft EndPoint ManagerOf course, it will continue to provide 18 months of mirroring software support, 24 months of enterprise supply cycle and quality assurance.
In terms of products,It will be on the market in April, the first batch will be HP EliteBook 845 G8, ProBook Aero 635 G2, ProBook x360 435 G8, Lenovo ThinkPad T14s, ThinkBook 16P, ThinkBook 14s,and many more.
Among them, HP ProBook series, Lenovo ThinkBook 16P, etc. are still AMD exclusive platforms, and only Ryzen can enjoy them.
In the future, more manufacturers and models will join.
