AMD has unveiled its latest lineup of products in the form of brand new CPUs. These CPUs are branded under the red company’s new “Ryzen Pro” family. According to AMD, these processors are aimed at professionals who demand CPUs with high performance and reliable security at competitive prices.
In total, AMD’s Ryzen Pro family of CPUs consists of six different processors. Interestingly, the naming scheme of these processors are similar to that of the original consumer-grade Ryzen CPUs. AMD’s Ryzen Pro includes the likes of the Ryzen 7 Pro 1700X and 1700; Ryzen 5 Pro 1600 and 1500: as well as the Ryzen 3 Pro 1300 and 1200 CPUs.
Ryzen Pro processors range from having four CPU cores with four threads, up to eight CPU cores with sixteen threads. In addition, their clock speeds are anywhere from 3.4GHz up to 3.8GHz, while TDP ratings vary from 65W up to 95W.
One of the major differences between Ryzen Pro CPUs and the consumer-grade Ryzen processors are that the former CPU family comes with added security features. These include Windows 10 Enterprise Security support, AMD Secure Technologies, and an AES 128-bit encryption engine.
Also worth mentioning is the fact that every single Ryzen Pro CPU will be backed with a three-year warranty period as well. Unfortunately, AMD has not given pricing details for the Ryzen Pro CPUs. That said, the company did mention that PCs with Ryzen Pro CPUs will be made available in the second half of 2017, while mobile variants will come in 2018.
