AMD has unveiled new commercial mobile and desktop processors optimised for artificial intelligence (AI) to expand its AI PC portfolio. Dubbed the Ryzen PRO 8040 Series mobile processors and Ryzen PRO 8000 Series desktop processors. These new entries are set to feature in a range of upcoming notebooks and desktops produced by AMD's OEM partners such as Lenovo and HP.

The processors are designed to enhance AI-related tasks through an integrated architecture that includes a CPU, GPU, and a dedicated on-chip NPU. This setup promises a considerable increase in the number of trillions of operations per second (TOPS) over previous generations, aimed at improving performance in AI-driven applications such as collaborative tools, content creation, and data analytics.

For IT management, AMD PRO technologies are integrated to streamline operations and save PC deployment time by up to 41 percent faster using cloud-based management tools like Windows Autopilot, according to AMD.

Security features are also a key aspect of the new Ryzen PRO processors, with the inclusion of the Microsoft Pluton security processor. This integration enhances protection from the hardware level right up to cloud-based services, securing user data and sensitive information across Windows 11 PCs.
