What to look for in a Business Processor
For over 50 years, AMD has driven innovation in high-performance computing, graphics, and visualization technologies the building blocks for gaming, immersive platforms, and the data centre. Hundreds of millions of consumers, Fortune 500 businesses, and cutting-edge scientific research facilities rely on AMD technology daily to improve how they live, work, and play. AMD employees around the world are focused on building great products that push the boundaries of what is possible.
AMD knows the key features businesses look for in a processor:
- Compute power
- Graphics performance
- Sophisticated security
- Integration and manageability
- Quality and reliability
- Efficiency and long battery life
- High availability
Performance is often the most important factor when evaluating a processor. Skimp on compute and your users will face unresponsive applications and have difficulty multitasking. They’ll have to close background applications, essentially forcing them to choose where to spend their limited processing power. AMD Ryzen™ PRO processors feature 12nm technology that delivers high efficiency and superb, long-lasting performance, whatever your role.
You no longer have to be in a graphics-driven job to require high graphics performance. HD video, complex presentations, 3D modelling, rich collaboration and conferencing, and multi-display demands all add up to higher requirements for graphics performance. AMD Ryzen™ PRO processors with Radeon™ Vega Graphics accelerate these and other graphics workloads, allowing you to visualize in real-time and speed up your business and creative workflows, keeping you productive and secure.
Security is critical given that end-user devices, due to their potential mobility, are exposed to some of the highest security risks, especially when outside the control of their IT department. Security has to be automated, enforced programmatically, and ideally built into the hardware. Ryzen™ PRO processors were designed with security in mind, helping protect against boot kit attacks, OS and app attacks, and memory / cold boot attacks, and easing the burden of end-user device management on IT teams.
AMD Ryzen™ PRO and Athlon PRO are the only processor family that offers a full set of manageability features on every model. Industry-leading DASH manageability for remote administration comes standard in all Ryzen™ PRO processors. Based on open standards, DASH allows quick and easy remote access and diagnostics – both in-band and out-of-band – to streamline management of your fleet of PCs and ensure quality and reliability.
Quality control plays a huge part in determining the reliability of an end product. Manufacturing variabilities and inconsistent sourcing can result in defective parts, gutting system reliability. AMD Ryzen™ PRO processors offer commercial-grade quality, with products sourced from wafers with the highest yields, helping ensure exceptional dependability. In addition, 18 months of planned platform stability helps bring peace of mind and long-term efficiency.
The ideal processor can save you money by using less energy while providing cutting-edge compute and graphics performance for your users. Ryzen™ PRO 12nm processors offer superb efficiency, generating less heat than a similar AMD processor from three years ago. Efficiency also helps mobile users who need to stay productive all day.
