AMD Ryzen PRO 5000 Mobile Processors Revealed!

AMD Ryzen PRO 5000 Mobile Processors Revealed!

AMD just introduced the Ryzen PRO 5000 mobile processors, with new Zen 3 cores for professional laptops!

Here is EVERYTHING AMD has revealed so far about the new AMD Ryzen PRO 5000 mobile processors!

 

AMD Ryzen PRO 5000 : Zen 3 For Mobile Business Laptops!

The AMD Ryzen PRO 5000 uses the new AMD Zen 3 architecture, and is fabricated on the 7 nm process.

The Zen 3 architecture delivers 19% more instructions per cycle (IPC) over the last generation, thanks to these new features :

  • improved load / store performance and flexibility
  • L3 cache doubled to 16 MB vs. 8 MB in 4000 Series
  • unified L3 cache accessible to all cores
  • wider issue in floating point and integer engines
  • Zero Bubble branch prediction

The new mobile processors also uses a single, monolithic die, which eliminates the I/O latency between dies.

In addition to its improved performance, the AMD Ryzen PRO 5000 mobile processors also come with these AMD PRO technologies :

  • AMD PRO security provides a multi-layered approach to security features by embedding defenses at every level, from silicon through operating system.
    – AMD Memory Guard, automatically enabled on Microsoft Secured-Core PCs, helps enable data and identity protection, while
    – AMD Shadow Stack helps provide hardware enabled protection against malware attacks.
  • AMD PRO manageability enables a full manageability feature set for simplified deployment, imaging and management that is compatible with modern IT infrastructures.
    AMD Ryzen PRO processors offer full support for Microsoft Endpoint Manager to deliver a flexible and integrated cloud management solution.
  • AMD PRO business ready technologies bring enterprise-grade computing solutions designed for quality and reliability, in addition to platform longevity.
    AMD Ryzen PRO processors feature 18-months of planned software stability and 24-months of planned availability.

The AMD Ryzen PRO Mobile APU Tech Report

AMD just announced the availability of seven Ryzen PRO APU models for the mobile and desktop markets, as well as laptops and desktops featuring these new APUs. Get the full details of the new AMD Ryzen PRO Mobile APUs – features, specifications and availability!

 

AMD Raven Ridge

Raven Ridge is AMD’s codename for their Ryzen-Vega APUs (Accelerated Processing Units). First introduced in the mobile segment as the AMD Ryzen Mobile, AMD is now offering PRO versions in both mobile and desktop markets.

These Ryzen APUs combine an AMD Ryzen CPU, with an AMD Radeon Vega GPU, in a single die.

Ryzen CPU + Radeon Vega GPU = Ryzen APU

Mobile APUs are not new. AMD have been making them for years, and Intel mobile processors all come with integrated graphics. But AMD is still the only manufacturer to integrate “premium CPU cores” with “premium graphics cores”.

 

AMD Ryzen PRO APU

The AMD Ryzen PRO desktop processors, revealed in September 2017, were enterprise-grade versions of the first-generation AMD Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 processors. A month later, AMD launched the AMD Ryzen Mobile APUs.

However, AMD has not launched any enterprise-grade APU for either the desktop or mobile market… until now, that is. Here are the first seven AMD Ryzen PRO APU models – three for the mobile market, and four for the desktop market.

AMD Ryzen PRO APU (Mobile SKUs)

  • AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 2700U – 4C/8T, 2.2 to 3.8 GHz, Vega 11 Graphics, 15W cTDP
  • AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 2500U – 4C/8T, 2.0 to 3.6 GHz, Vega 8 Graphics, 15W cTDP
  • AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 2300U – 4C/4T, 2.0 to 3.4 GHz, Vega 6 Graphics, 15W cTDP

AMD Ryzen PRO APU (Desktop SKUs)

  • AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 2400G – 4C/8T, 3.6 to 3.9 GHz, Vega 11 Graphics, 65W TDP
  • AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 2400GE – 4C/8T, 3.2 to 3.8 GHz, Vega 11 Graphics, 35W TDP
  • AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 2200G – 4C/4T, 3.5 to 3.7 GHz, Vega 8 Graphics, 65W TDP
  • AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 2200GE – 4C/4T, 3.2 to 3.6 GHz, Vega 8 Graphics, 35W TDP

In this article, we will focus on the Ryzen PRO Mobile APUs. For the AMD Ryzen PRO desktop APUs, we have a separate article – The AMD Ryzen PRO Desktop APU Tech Report.

AMD Ryzen PRO Mobile APU Key Features

AMD GuardMI Technology

Even though the Ryzen PRO APU uses the same silicon as its consumer-grade siblings, it has AMD GuardMI Technology enabled.

GuardMI is built into the silicon, which offers OS-agnostic security through :

  • Transparent Secure Memory Encryption – DRAM encryption with minimal performance impact
  • Secure Boot Process – hardware-based root of trust secures the BIOS from power-on
  • Real-Time Intrusion Detection – with support for fTPM and TPM 2.0

 

Enterprise-Grade Reliability

The AMD Ryzen PRO APU will come with enterprise-grade reliability features like :

  • 18 months of planned software stability
  • 24 months of planned processor availability
  • commercial-grade quality-assurance process
  • cherry-picked silicon for long-term reliability and performance
  • supports DASH manageability standard
  • 36-month limited warranty for system manufacturers

 

Single CCX Configuration

Unlike the Summit Ridge-based Ryzen CPUs, the AMD Raven Ridge processors use a single CCX configuration. This is a cost-saving measure with a much smaller die size, that also yield some performance benefits – reduced cache and memory latencies.

 

Precision Boost 2

The AMD Ryzen PRO APU also boasts the improved Precision Boost 2, whose more graceful and linear boost algorithm allows them to “boost more cores, more often, on more workloads“. It is now able to change frequencies in very fine granularity of just 25 MHz.

According to AMD, this will allow the AMD Ryzen PRO APU to perform better with apps that spawn many lightweight threads, as opposed to apps with persistent loads (e.g. video editing and 3D rendering).

[adrotate group=”1″]

 

Mobile XFR (mXFR)

Mobile XFR (eXtended Frequency Range) is the automatic overclocking feature that boosts the processor voltage and clock speed beyond the Precision Boost clock speed. It leverages the temperature awareness of Precision Boost 2 to determine how much faster it can overclock.

Like the desktop XFR feature, it is highly dependent on the processor temperature, so a good cooling solution is necessary. Notebooks must have coolers that meet AMD’s performance criteria if they want to offer mXFR.

 

Synergistic Power Rail Sharing

The AMD Ryzen PRO mobile APUs have a unified VDD power rail with digital low-dropout (LDO) regulators. This synergistic power rail sharing allows the maximum current requirements to be reduced by 36%.

They also have multiple digital LDO regions for the CPU cores, graphics core and subregions. This allows those regions to be completely turned off when they are idle, greatly saving power.

The shared voltage regulators not only reduce the total current draw, it allows the Ryzen PRO mobile APU to gain a higher peak CPU and GPU current to boost performance.

AMD Ryzen PRO Mobile APU Performance

Let’s take a look at some benchmark results that AMD shared with us.

General Office Productivity

In general office productivity apps, the AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 2700U is about 95% as fast as the Intel Core i7-8550U. The AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 2500U, on the other hand, is equivalent to the Intel Core i5-8250U.

Professional Applications

Thanks to the integrated Vega Graphics, the AMD Ryzen PRO Mobile APUs shine in professional applications. They are slightly faster in Photoshop, but offer significantly better performance in 3D CAD applications.

Desktop-Class Performance

Despite being a mobile processor, the Ryzen PRO Mobile offers desktop-class performance at a fraction of the power.

Ryzen PRO Mobile vs. 8th Gen Core

AMD shared some benchmarks to show you how the new AMD Ryzen PRO Mobile APUs fare against their Intel 8th Gen Core counterparts.

Ryzen PRO Mobile vs. 8th Gen vPro

Here are some benchmarks demonstrating how much faster the new AMD Ryzen PRO Mobile APUs again, compared to the Intel 8th Gen vPro counterparts.

AMD Ryzen PRO Mobile APU Gaming Performance

Even though the AMD Ryzen PRO Mobile APUs are “technically” used only for work <wink wink>, the integrated Vega Graphics allow them to double as esports gaming systems! In fact, AMD shares that the AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 2700U is as fast as the Intel Core i7-8550U paired with the NVIDIA GeForce 950M GPU.

Now, the integrated Vega Graphics is not meant to be a true gaming GPU, but it is powerful enough to deliver playable frame rates for these games at 1080p resolution.
