AMD reveals their 2nd Gen Ryzen PRO and new Athlon PRO processors

AMD has today announced the addition of four new processors to their Ryzen PRO desktop lineup, offering Ryzen 2nd Generation performance levels for high-end professional users and low-cost Athlon offerings for IT professionals that do not want to sacrifice any security features.  

These processors share the same basic specifications as their standard Ryzen and Athlon counterparts, aside from one key area, security. Ryzen PRO and Athlon PRO silicon offer support for AMD's GuardMI technology, supporting Windows 10's Enterprise Security, delivers built-in AES 128-bit encryption and supports the fTPM/TPM 2.0 feature set.  

AMD's security capabilities enable enterprise users to offer high-end security features while maintaining a low system costs, with Intel's competing vPro features being limited to higher-end SKUs. AMD provides this feature on even their lowly dual-core Athlon PRO 200GE. 

AMD's Ryzen PRO and Athlon PRO processors also ship with a 36-month limited warranty, which is three times longer than consumer products and will have at least 24 months of availability after launch. This ensures that enterprise customers can have a steady supply of these processors for quite some time after launch.

AMD's Ryzen PRO and Athlon PRO processors offer the same specifications as their consumer-grade counterparts, providing the same base/boost clock speeds and general naming scheme. This makes AMD's new Ryzen Pro lineup extremely easy to understand, especially if you are familiar with existing Ryzen 2nd Generation products.  

   AMD PRO processors are designed for business, bringing reliability, security, and performance to address the demands of today’s compute-intensive enterprise-focused workloads. All AMD PRO processors across the product stack provide commercial-grade quality and reliability to help ensure platform longevity and support open-standard manageability to enable greater management flexibility in a multi-vendor client environment at a business-friendly price.

When compared to Intel's desktop offers, AMD expects Ryzen Pro customers to achieve higher levels of multi-threaded performance while maintaining similar pricing. This will be useful for users who frequently edit/encode videos or regularly use CPU-heavy 3D rendering techniques. 

AMD has also assured us that their Ryzen/Athlon PRO systems require the same number of steps and a similar amount of time to deploy as an equivalent Intel-based system, making Ryzen/Athlon PRO systems just as easy to work with as their competitors.

When compared to the company's existing Ryzen (1st Gen) PRO processors, AMD expects their Ryzen 2nd Generation PRO processors to offer between a 10 and 16% performance boost, thanks to AMD's use of 12nm manufacturing technologies and Ryzen 2nd Generation's suite architectural enhancements.
