It is undeniable that AMD’s Ryzen series of processors have been successful, especially within the enthusiast market, creating a fundamental shift in the PC market as we knew it.  

While the enthusiast market can create a lot of revenue with high-end product lines, the OEM market provides the bulk of processor sales worldwide, whether it be from consumer-class systems to enterprise-grade workstations or office systems. AMD needed to tap into this market to create a long-term success out of Ryzen, not only to deliver them increased sales but also to provide the company with the brand recognition that mainstream systems can provide. 

Today AMD has announced that their new Ryzen PRO series of mobile and desktop APUs have been adopted by the big three, Dell HP and Lenovo, the three largest OEMs in the PC market. This adoption will see each manufacturer create business-class notebooks and desktop systems using AMD’s new Ryzen+Vega APUs, allowing AMD to cover a new section of the OEM PC market, outside of consumer notebooks and desktops.

AMD’s new Ryzen PRO series lineups include mobile APUs like the Ryzen 7 PRO 2700U, Ryzen 5 PRO 2500U and Ryzen 3 PRO 2300U, each of which offer the same basic specifications as their consumer desktop counterparts, with enterprise support and GuardMI technology. On the desktop side, AMD will be offering Ryzen 5 PRO 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G APUs, with low power E-series variants with the Ryzen 5 PRO 2400GE and Ryzen 3 PRO 2200GE.   

Below are the specifications of AMD’s new Ryzen PRO series of desktop/mobile APUs, though these units are pretty much identical to their non-PRO series desktop counterparts.

AMD tacking the enterprise OEM market is no small feat for the company, providing a much-needed step towards restoring the company’s reputation within the market as a creator of competitive processor technology within the desktop market. This adoption will help AMD to continue their revenue growth into 2018, allowing them to invest further into their future processor designs.
