AMD on Monday announced the availability of its 3rd generation Ryzen Pro processors for commercial and small business desktop computers. As with their consumer counterparts, the new Pro CPUs will pack up to 12 cores, and they will be available inside of desktops by HP and Lenovo in the fourth quarter. In addition, AMD also announced new Ryzen Pro and Athlon Pro 3000-series APUs with integrated graphics.

Small Desktops Get 12-Core CPUs

AMD’s latest generation of Ryzen Pro CPUs are based on the same Zen 2 "Matisse" microarchitecture as the consumer chips introduced earlier this summer. The initial Ryzen Pro 3000-series family will include three models in the AM4 form-factor, with all of them set for a 65 W TDP. These include the the 12-core Ryzen 9 Pro 3900, the eight-core Ryzen 7 Pro 3700, and the six-core Ryzen 5 Pro 3600.

The processors will feature support for all of AMD’s Pro-series features, including a built-in TrustZone security processor, DASH manageability, Secure Boot, Content Protection, per-Application security, fTPM 2.0, Transparent Secure Memory Encryption (TSME), and some other technologies that differentiate AMD’s Pro from the firm’s regular CPUs for client PCs. Once thing to keep in mind is that these products are truly CPU, and as such do not have integrated graphics.

Frequency Cache
L2 + L3
Base Boost
Ryzen 9 Pro 3900 12/24 3.1 GHz 4.3 GHz 70 MB - 65 W
Ryzen 7 Pro 3700 8/16 3.6 GHz 4.4 GHz 36 MB - 65 W
Ryzen 5 Pro 3600 6/12 3.6 GHz 4.2 GHz 35 MB - 65 W

Initial customers for the Ryzen Pro 3000-series processors will be HP and Lenovo, with the former using them inside its EliteDesk 705 G5 SFF and Mini desktops, while Lenovo will use the chips for their upcoming ThinkCentre M75s-1 SFF and M75q-1 Tiny desktops.

Commercial PCs Get Radeon Vega Graphics

Meanwhile, for more streamlined PCs that need integrated graphics and fewer CPU cores, AMD has also introduced new APUs based on their 12nm Zen+ "Picasso" design, analogous to mainstream their Ryzen 3000 APUs. The new Ryzen 3000 Pro APUs will include the quad-core Ryzen 5 Pro and Ryzen 3 Pro, and the dual-core Athlon Pro 3000-series CPUs, all of which include integrated Radeon Vega graphics. The chips featuring TDPs of 65 W and 35 W depending on the SKU, with the processors slated to be used for select machines from HP and Lenovo, according to AMD.

    The 65W 12 core is pretty impressive though. Would make a great small server CPU.

    Nothing special. 3900x is 95W and with almost 1GHz lower base clock they go to 65W. We are talking about 7nm in the end. If it would be 35W, yeah, that would be amazing.

    "Commercial PCs Get Radeon Vega Graphics"

    Which PC is sold as a non-commercial one?
  • Ryan Smith - Monday, September 30, 2019 - link

    PCs for industrial uses, PCs for consumers/home users, etc.
  • Death666Angel - Tuesday, October 1, 2019 - link

    "Commercial" in this instance usually refers to things that are used in a way to generate money to businesses and not for recreation or private use.

    They meant to write "enterprise", as all the network management features are useless for small businesses and everybody else except for large businesses with multiple offices and remote IT.

    It would be interesting to see AMD's APU (maybe a new family) built on GloFo's new 12LP+ -

    Mm, 35W quad core with graphics? That Ryzen 5 Pro 3400GE looks like a good desktop gaming chip and for once doesn't need an irrationally large HSF or demand the installation of a dGPU. If mobile phones didn't exist, I'd be very tempted to look into throwing together a system around a CPU like that.

    The only problem is that as end-usr , it is very difficult, nay impossible to get the E/35w versions. Even the previous gen are very very rare. (2400Ge,2200Ge). And whilst 35w is low, its not really low enough 25w 15w should be their target.
