The AMD family of professional desktop processors just got bigger: the company announced seven chips Ryzen Pro 3000, plus an option for the Athlon Pro. The highlight goes to the AMD Ryzen 9 Pro 3900, model that has 12 cores and 24 threads.
The new models are very similar to the third-generation Ryzen processors that AMD announced earlier this year, but bring features designed for corporate environments, such as secure boot, encryption of memory content and Dash management.
The AMD Ryzen 9 Pro 3900 is the highlight for being the most powerful chip of this wave. But it does not arrive alone: AMD has also announced options for the Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 Pro lines. All are based on Zen architecture 2, support for PCI Express 4.0 and TSMC’s 7 nanometer manufacturing technology:
|Processor||Cores / Threads||Clock (GHz)||Boost||L2 + L3 cache (MB)||TDP|
|AMD Ryzen 9 Pro 3900||12/24||3.1||4.3||70||65|
|AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 3700||8/16||3.6||4.4||36||65|
|AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 3600||6/12||3.6||4.2||35||65|
AMD also announced four Ryzen Pro processors with 12 nanometers and PCI Express 3.0. They are simpler, on the other hand, they have an integrated Radeon Vega GPU:
|Processor||Cores / Threads||Clock (GHz)||Boost||L2 + L3 cache (MB)||TDP||Radeon Vega GPU|
|AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 3400G||4/8||3.7||4.2||6||65||11 cores|
|AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 3400GE||4/8||3.3||4||6||35||11 cores|
|AMD Ryzen 3 Pro 3200G||4/4||3.6||4||6||65||8 cores|
|AMD Ryzen 3 Pro 3200GE||4/4||3.3||3.8||6||35||8 cores|
Finally, AMD launched the Athlon Pro 300GE. It is the simplest chip and, certainly, the cheapest. It has two cores, four threads, frequency of 3.4 GHz (without boost), 5 MB L2 + L3 cache, 35 W TDP and Radeon Vega 3 GPU (with three cores).
Since these chips are delivered directly to PC makers, AMD has not disclosed prices. However, brands like HP and Lenovo have already confirmed the launch of desktops based on the news. The HP EliteDesk 705 G5, for example, starts at $ 669 in the United States.
