AMD has a new set of SKUs for the commercial market. The AMD Ryzen Pro 5000 series is designed to be the company’s new lineup for the lower-power segment. We are just going to present a handful of slides since we already have done a lot of Zen 3 related content this week with the AMD EPYC 7003 series “Milan” launch.

AMD started its pitch for the new chips just talking about the commercial market. We are going to take issue with one image, specifically above “Desktops” that appears to be the older ~1L Lenovo Tiny design we cover in Project TinyMiniMicro. One can see the difference with the Lenovo M75q-1 Tiny and M75q-2 Tiny both based on Ryzen CPUs (Zen+ and Zen 2 respectively.) The jump from the M75q-1 to M75q-2 was a huge one as we got the newer architecture and 8 cores. Today’s announcement is around Zen 3.
Many will still notice that Intel is strong in the notebook and commercial segment. Still, AMD is highlighting growth. This unit is effectively in startup mode like EPYC, just with a lot less fanfare.
In terms of the SKU stack, we get Zen3 based 8-core designs. Since these are “U” series processors we have a 15W TDP but that has some room for configuration.
Effectively, this brings the Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors to the commercial segment. Perhaps that is why it gets less fanfare as we have already seen Zen 3 in the desktop, consumer mobile, and now server space.
This is not the biggest announcement piece, but we already have an 8000+ word EPYC 7003 review with a 30+ minute video talking about the benefits of Zen 3 over Zen 2 in the server space, so perhaps this is just the timing of the release by the AMD commercial team.
Now, what is going to be exciting for many is that we are going to start the Threadripper Pro series beyond the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX now that we are past the EPYC 7003 launch.
