AMD Ryzen mobile processors for business

AMD Ryzen™ mobile processors are, quite simply, the best, fastest AMD computer processors available for laptops. When AMD released its Ryzen processor line, it pushed the limits in terms of the number of cores and threads, clock speeds, battery efficiency, and more.

What does a Ryzen CPU mean for on-the-go business users, compared to earlier AMD processors? Faster task completion, for one, along with longer unplugged times and extra processing power when you need it. It's no wonder the Ryzen line-up has won rave reviews around the globe.

Here's a brief look at some of what makes Ryzen processors so special:

  • Industry leading x86 technology: Advanced processor technology in AMD Ryzen CPUs enables new levels of power efficiency, leading to stunningly long battery life.

  • Advanced processor architecture: AMD Ryzen processors are built on the company's revolutionary “Zen” architecture, which delivers uncompromising performance and productivity.

  • AMD Secure Architecture: AMD Ryzen processor architecture is designed from the ground up with security features as a priority to help address today’s sophisticated attacks.

You'll find AMD Ryzen processors across the Lenovo line-up of laptops suitable for business, including industry-leading ThinkPad laptops, flexible Yoga 2-in-1s, and ultraportable IdeaPad systems. They're also available in Lenovo Legion gaming laptops (which are popular with business users, too).

5 Max boost for AMD Ryzen processors is the maximum frequency achievable by a single core on the processor running a bursty single-threaded workload. Max boost will vary based on several factors, including, but not limited to: thermal paste; system cooling; motherboard design and BIOS; the latest AMD chipset driver; and the latest OS updates.

6 An OEM that has enabled the AMD Secure Boot feature grants permission for their cryptographically signed BIOS code to run only on their platforms using an AMD secure boot enabled motherboard. One-time-programmable fuses in the processor bind the processor to the OEM’s firmware code signing key. From that point on, that processor can only be used with motherboards that use the same code signing key. (GD-192).
