AMD announced the Ryzen Pro 5000 series mobile processors. This new processor series targets the business world. According to the statement, the Pro 5000 series, which uses the Zen 3 architecture, will be used in Ultrabooks.
In addition, the processors will be able to work without sacrificing performance and battery consumption. The Pro 5000 series will appear on a range of Ultrabooks this year, including the Elitebook, ProBook, ThinkPad and ThinkBook.
On paper, the Pro 5000 series looks a lot like the Ryzen 5000 series processors. The new Pro 5000 series features 8 cores / 16 tracks, 20 MB cache, 1.9 GHz base clock and a clock speed increase up to 4.4 GHz.
The power consumption of the processor is 15 W TDP. The features of the Pro 5000 are also included in the Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U. 4-core processors are frequently used in ultrabooks.
Intel‘s Tiger Lake vPro series processors are currently 4-core. Another 8-core Ultrabook processor is the Apple M1. So AMD is not the first in 8-core Ultrabook processors. The new Pro 5000 series processors include AMD Pro Manageability technology, which rivals Intel‘s Active Management Technology. Finally, the Pro 5000 series supports Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager, which simplifies the work of IT staff.
