AMD Introduces Ryzen Pro 8000 Processors, Bringing AI to Business Laptops and Desktops


AMD is once again pushing AI-enabled products into the market, this time through the announcement of two new processor lines named Ryzen Pro 8040 and Ryzen Pro 8000.

Both processor series are equipped with the XNDA neural processing unit (NPU) for on-device AI processing and target the business sector, but in different categories, namely desktop and laptop.

There are several AI utilization scenarios in the business environment, such as chatbots, image generators, and productivity applications.

Many generative AI services can actually be accessed over the internet (cloud) without the need for on-device AI processing capabilities, such as ChatGPT or DALL-E.

However, according to AMD, businesses prefer to run generative AI locally on their computers due to security and privacy reasons.

"We do a lot of things that are private. We don't want to put data (that is confidential) on the internet," said AMD Marketing Manager Ronak Shah during a press briefing, as reported by PC Magazine on Thursday (4/18/2024).

AMD Ryzen Pro 8000

The Ryzen Pro 8000 still uses the Zen 4 CPU architecture and the same integrated Radeon GPU as the Ryzen 8000G "Phoenix" series for consumers.

The processor series, whose manufacturing process has been updated from 5 nm to 4 nm at the TSMC factory, consists of eight models. Its performance is in the mid-range with options for CPU core counts of 4 (8 threads), 6 (12 threads), and 8 (16 threads).

The top model is the Ryzen 7 Pro 8700G, equipped with an 8-core (16-thread) CPU with a boost speed of up to 5.1 GHz, a total cache of 24 MB, and a TDP of 43-65 watts.

At the bottom of the lineup is the Ryzen 3 8300GE with a 4-core (8-thread) CPU, a boost speed of up to 4.9 GHz, a total cache of 12 MB, and a TDP of 35 watts.

The top four models, Ryzen 7 Pro 8700G, Ryzen 7 Pro 8700GE, Ryzen 5 Pro 8600G, and Ryzen 5 Pro 8600GE, come with AI capabilities.

Meanwhile, the remaining four models, Ryzen 5 Pro 8500G, Ryzen 5 Pro 8500GE, Ryzen 3 Pro 8300G, and Ryzen Pro 8300GE, do not have AI processors.

The AMD Ryzen Pro 8000 series processors are expected to be available in OEM AMD computer products such as HP and Lenovo starting in the second quarter of 2024.
