Targeting at enterprise consumers, AMD launched Ryzen Pro a series of processors designed for the corporate desktop, offering faster computing and enhanced user experience as the tech major looks to take on rival Intel more aggressively in global markets. Partners such as HP, Dell and Lenovo will reportedly make a range of notebooks and desktops with the AMD processor that will soon be made available in India.

Our mission with AMD Ryzen processors is to deliver more performance, features and choice to users. Last year, we brought these to the consumer desktop and notebook segment and now we are extending these same principles to commercial notebooks and desktops, AMD Senior Vice President and GM Jim Anderson said in a statement. 

Ryzen PRO will have a battery life of using it all day long, up to 16 hours, world-class productivity performance and sensational graphics built on AMD’s Radeon technology, he further added.

Anderson also outlined that AMD’s processor portfolio remains strong and that it was on track with the development of lower-nanometer processors for 2019 and beyond.
