AMD Athlon™ PRO and 2nd Gen Ryzen™ PRO Desktop Processors: Enterprise Solutions for entry-level, mainstream and power-users

What type of computer user would you consider yourself?

  • Are you an entry-level user that just needs their computer for basic word processing or web browsing?
  • Are you a mainstream user that will do all the above plus some light content creation, spreadsheet analysis or heavy multi-tasking?
  • Or are you a power-user that needs premium performance for software development, VR or 3D modeling?

 

Regardless of whichever type of user you identify with, you need a computing system that matches your performance requirements. With the launch of the AMD Athlon™ PRO and 2nd Gen Ryzen™ PRO processors, AMD offers a complete top to bottom stack of commercial-grade desktop processors designed for each of these types of users.

Performance for Commercial Desktop User Workloads

The 2nd Gen Ryzen™ PRO desktop processors have been amped up from the 1st Gen Ryzen PRO CPUs, moving to the 12nm process and improved “zen+” architecture. The 2nd Gen Ryzen PRO processors also feature the latest Precision Boost 2 and XFR2 technology3 to allow these CPUs to reach even higher clock speeds than their predecessors. This ultimately means 2nd Gen Ryzen PRO CPUs are generationally faster and continue to provide leading multi-threaded performance versus the competition.1

The Athlon™ PRO 200GE desktop processor is designed to target entry-level users. This CPU combines the modern “Zen” core architecture with premium Radeon™ Vega graphics to provide the reliable and responsive performance entry-level users need for tasks from word processing, web browsing to video conferencing.2

Reliability, Manageability & Security for all user workloads

In enterprise environments, Security and Reliability is critical regardless of whether you’re an entry-level or power user. That’s why all AMD Ryzen™ PRO and Athlon™ PRO processors support the same reliability and manageability features (such as 18 month image stability and DASH manageability) and security features (such as Transparent secure memory encryption and Secure boot process) demanded by IT professionals.

Desktop System from the leading OEMs

So where can you get a desktop system with these new processors? The 2nd Gen Ryzen PRO and Athlon PRO 200GE model will be available with the major global OEMs including Dell, HP and Lenovo systems, dependent on respective OEM launch schedules4, so you can choose the right solution you need regardless if you’re an entry-level, mainstream or power-user.
