AMD has announced its new Ryzen Pro 5000 series mobile processors which will compete with the Intel vPro platform. The new Zen-3 chipsets are aimed at thin-and-light business laptops and will offer “uncompromised performance and battery life,” AMD claims.
The Ryzen Pro 5000 series chipsets feature similar specifications to the Ryzen 5000 chipsets. This includes the new octa-core Ryzen 7 Pro 5850 with 16 threads and 20MB cache. The chip has a base frequency of 1.9GHz and will boost up to 4.4GHz. The new lineup features the only processors for thin-and-light laptops that use eight high-performing cores.

For businesses, the new chips will offer new security features including Shadow Stack which is designed to protect systems against malware. The chips also feature AMD’s Pro Manageability platform, including “full-spectrum manageability features “.
AMD has also stated that the new chips will offer deeper integration with Microsoft and OEMs for better security and that PCs using the chips will be FIPS encryption certified. The Ryzen Pro 5000 series will also support Microsoft’s Endpoint Manager, a platform that lets IT workers manage multiple PCs, servers, and other devices.
