Chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has introduced a new series of processors called Ryzen Pro 6000 which are tailormade for laptops that business professionals prefer, claimed the company.
The new series is based on the ‘Zen 3+’ architecture and features integrated Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) built using the RDNA2 architecture.
Zen 3 is the codename for a CPU microarchitecture by AMD, released on November 5, 2020 and is the successor to Zen 2. While RDNA (Radeon DNA) is the codename for a GPU microarchitecture by AMD and RDNA2 is the current generation. Also, a GPU is an electronic circuit which is customized for rendering all images on the computer's screen.
“IT decision-makers and professionals have different expectations for their business laptops than they did two years ago. Today, employees want the best experience, all-day battery life and cutting-edge connectivity,” said Matt Unangst, Senior Director of AMD’s commercial client and workstation business. “We are uniquely positioned to help laptop OEMs meet professionals where their expectations are, and we are laser-focused on delivering leadership solutions.”
AMD had claimed that the next generation Lenovo ThinkPads and HP EliteBooks will be powered by Ryzen PRO 6000 Series processors, and will benefit from the enhanced security features.
It has also claimed that the processors demonstrate up to 17% faster performance when using MS Office productivity apps such as PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook while simultaneously running Microsoft Teams conferencing. Systems with Ryzen PRO 6000 Series processors also saw up to 45% longer battery life for video conferencing, as claimed by the company in its latest release.
“It’s great to see that systems powered by Ryzen PRO 6000 processors do not require a compromise between leadership performance and battery life,” Unangts further added.
