We covered desktop level Ryzen PRO desktop CPUs in the past, and now we will cover Ryzen PRO Mobile CPUs. The new one is four cores and eight threads with up to 10 Vega CUs and with a boost frequency of 3.8GHz. The Ryzen 7 PRO 2700U is said to deliver 22% more productivity performance of the i7-8550U, which is huge. Comparing the two in PCMark, TrueCrypt, and 3DMark 11 shows impressive performance improvements.

Here we can see systems AMD is offering for Ryzen PRO mobile users and how they compare to their Intel counterparts. Ryzen PRO mobile CPUs offers over 270% perf/Watt improvements, which results in 13 hours of battery life, and 9.2 hours of HD video playback. They also feature Precision Boost 2 and Mobile XFR.

We had covered Ryzen PRO's security features here, but basically, they have features that directly compete with Intel's vPro. The CPUs are also enterprise grade and carry nice commercial warranties.

We can also see that AMD's target market is enterprise and workstations much like Intel's Xeon line.
