This morning AMD is introducing their Ryzen PRO processors for business and commercial desktop PCs. The new lineup of CPUs includes the Ryzen 3 PRO, Ryzen 5 PRO and Ryzen 7 PRO families with four, six, or eight cores running at various frequencies. A superset to the standard Ryzen chips, the PRO chips have the same feature set as other Ryzen devices, but also offer enhanced security, 24 months availability, a longer warranty and promise to feature better chip quality.
I guess it makes sense from a marketing perspective, but I’m not a fan of segmentation like this – it just makes an already complicated market even more complicated.
The link is broken.
More choice is good. There will never be one CPU to fit all budgets and workloads, so variety can allow people to build the exact machine to cater for their needs.
Huh? What is this supposed to mean? Does it mean that regular AMD Ryzens will overheat due to leaking or go poof after a couple of years, or does it mean that the “Pro” Ryzens will last a century?
This “promise” might hurt the the regular AMD Ryzen line because AMD are sending the wrong message.
