Business notebooks and laptops are the target for AMD’s latest series of Ryzen microprocessors.

The Ryzen 7Pro 4750U is the first business microprocessor built on a 7nm manufacturing process and AMD’s Zen 2 architecture.

It offers the most cores and threads in an ultra-thin business notebook and is said to be up to 33% faster than the competition.

The 7nm process delivers an up to 2x improvement on power efficiency over previous platforms, and it is designed to deliver up to 20+ hours of battery life on a premium platform.

Better idle detection means idle components are moved to lower power states fast and improved activity detection gets them back to full performance fast.

Enhanced power state selection reduces the penalty of power state selections.

The processors are fully optimised for remote work capabilities and designed to take business computing to the next level with multi-threading performance for modern productivity.

Enterprise designs from HP and Lenovo powered by AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 Series Mobile Processors are expected to be available worldwide starting in the first half of 2020, with anywhere-anytime productivity, multiple layers of security features, seamless manageability and reliable longevity.

“With the launch of AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 Series Mobile Processors, AMD once again defines the new standard for PC experiences – from high-end desktop computing to ultrathin and gaming notebooks, and now the modern business notebook,” said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, client business unit, AMD. “Built on the ground-breaking ‘Zen 2’ architecture and 7nm process technology, the AMD Ryzen for Business portfolio delivers advanced performance, reliable security features, impressive battery life and advanced manageability to significantly elevate the capabilities of the ultrathin notebook in any work environment.”

The processors offer a multi-layered approach embedding defences at every level, from silicon through operating system and system level security features.

AMD Memory Guard, exclusive to AMD Ryzen PRO processors, helps enable data and identity protection.

Microsoft Endpoint Manager is supported to deliver a flexible and integrated cloud management solution.

AMD Ryzen PRO processors feature 18-months of planned software stability and 24-months of planned availability. ​

AMD says the processors give OEMs now offers customers a breadth of business solutions with the flexibility to choose options based on mobility, performance, manageability and security requirements.

For small- and medium-sized businesses, AMD Ryzen 4000 U-Series Mobile Processors deliver powerful performance and security features in commercial notebook designs.

HP has expanded its offerings for growing businesses and remote workers with the HP ProBook 445 G7 and HP ProBook 455 G7 laptops powered by AMD Ryzen 4000 Series Mobile Processors, in addition to the HP ProBook x360 435 G7, a business convertible laptop unveiled earlier this year.

For large businesses requiring enterprise-grade manageability and business solutions, AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 Series Mobile Processors offer enhanced productivity and PRO exclusive security and manageability features to meet the computing needs of modern businesses.

Lenovo is updating the latest ThinkPad portfolio focused on providing a broad customer choice and a smarter workforce experience, powered by AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 Series Mobile Processors.


“Along with partners like AMD, Microsoft has created a new class of devices called Secured-core PCs designed to provide an extra layer of security at the firmware and OS levels. These devices enable customers to boot securely by protecting the firmware from targeted attacks, and ensuring that identity and domain credentials are protected,” said David Weston, director of enterprise and OS security, Microsoft. “Together with AMD, we are providing customers with an accelerated and secured PC experience. Powered by the latest Ryzen PRO mobile processors, Windows 10 Secured-Core PCs give users performance and incredible visual experiences ideally suited for today’s modern commercial environments.”
