7nm processors for business notebooks
AMD expands its Ryzen 4000 series processors with the Ryzen PRO 4000. Aimed towards business notebooks, the Ryzen PRO 4000 series is based on AMD’s 7nm Zen2 architecture, which promises a big leap in performance over the previous-generation Ryzen PRO 3000 series.
Based on AMD’s tests with CineBench R20, the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U is better than the previous-generation Ryzen 7 PRO 3700U by 29% in single-core tests and up to 132% in multi-core tests. The 8-core Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U also outscores the 6-core Core i7-10710U in almost all benchmark tests, with a score difference of 32% for PCMark 10 Digital Content Creation.
Aside from performance, the 7nm process also makes the Ryzen PRO 4000 series more power efficient with their 15w TDP. Compared to the previous-generation Ryzen PRO 3000 series, the Ryzen PRO 4000 series promises as much as double the performance-per-watt ratio. Along with improvements in processor design, AMD claims that the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U can last up to 20 hours on a single charge.
As business-focused processors, the Ryzen PRO 4000 series comes with a suite of security features like AMD Memory Guard for full memory encryption, native support for Microsoft Endpoint Manager, and up to 18 months of planned software stability.
The Ryzen PRO 4000 series processors will be available to select HP ProBook and Lenovo ThinkPad models by the first half of 2020.
