Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD) announced the launch of its new Ryzen 4000 Series Desktop Processors and Athlon 3000 Series Desktop Processors. The new processors have inbuilt Radeon graphics and will be available for commercial and consumer PC markets.
Both Processors built for gamers and streamers
The new processors are built on the company’s ‘Zen 2’ core architecture utilizing 7 nanometer (nm) process technology that helps to create better gaming and content creation experiences. Both AMD Ryzen 4000 G-Series and Athlon 3000 G-Series are designed for playing games and streaming live online videos.
In March, the chipmaker based in Santa Clara, California, released details of its eight-core Ryzen 7 4800H and six-core Ryzen 5 4600H processors. The company also gave details of the eight-core Ryzen 9 4900H, its new flagship gaming laptop processor.
The new AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 Series and AMD Athlon PRO 3000 Series processors have been made to meet the various needs of businesses and individuals. In addition, the new chip has enhanced security features like AMD Secure Processor and AMD Memory Guard. The company is counting on these improved features to drive demand for the new chips in the market.
AMD counting on the new processors to boost revenue
The new processors are expected to boost the company’s revenue in coming days and build investors’ confidence.
Both AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 Series and AMD Athlon PRO 3000 Series processors operate on 3.6-4.4GHz, 3.7-4.2GHz and 3.8-4.0GHz, respectively while retaining the 65W TDP of their predecessors. According to OEM, the 4750G is 31% faster than Intel’s Core i7-9700 with vPro. In addition AMD says the new processors are 43% more power efficient compared to non-7nm platforms.
According to a report by Mercury Research, the company commands largest share of the laptop processor market at 83.8%. However, AMD’s dominance is threatened with market share continuing to grow steadily in the past few years. The company accounted for 16.2% of the market share in terms of unit shipped in the 4Q 2019. The first laptop with the H-series processor is expected to be out this spring.
