AMD isn’t just working on AM4 embedded desktop processors – a new listing from an insider has revealed the upcoming Ryzen 5000 “PRO” line. A few days ago we reported on the AMD Ryzen 5000 “Embedded” line of desktop processors for the AM4 platform, and now Lenovo has listed three SKUs that will be part of the Ryzen 5000 “PRO” line, which is expected to launch soon. The trio of processors was listed for the Lenovo ThinkStation P358 Tower system, which is based on the socketed AM4 platform and supports DDR4-3200 (Non-ECCC) memory. This information shows that there are at least three AMD Ryzen 5000 “PRO” processors based on the Zen 3 core architecture in the works. These include the Ryzen 9 PRO 5945, Ryzen 7 PRO 5845, and Ryzen 5 PRO 5645.
According to the specifications, the Ryzen 9 chip has up to 12 cores, the Ryzen 7 chip will get 8 cores, and the Ryzen 5 chip will adopt a 6-core design. The Ryzen 5000 “Embedded” line includes a 10-core SKU in the Ryzen 9 series, so this could also be a possible SKU configuration for a certain PRO segment. Looking at AMD’s current Ryzen PRO AM4 offerings, we can see that the company has mostly relied on its Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 4000 APUs for the platform, while the latest offerings of eligible processors have been Ryzen 3000 chips based on the Zen 2 core architecture. Intel will respond, which needs to come up with a competitor for upcoming processors. You may have to redesign a new generation of processors.
