New AMD Chips to Offer Advanced Enterprise AI Capabilities

AMD has announced new products to expand its mobile and desktop AI PC portfolio to better deliver business AI productivity and connectivity experiences

AMD is expanding its commercial mobile and desktop AI personal computer (PC) portfolio with its new Ryzen Pro chips, as part of a commitment to expand its leadership in this field.

The AMD Ryzen PRO 8040 Series is described by the company as the most advanced x86 processors built for business laptops and mobile workstations. Furthermore, the company has announced a new AI-enabled desktop processor - the first of its kind for business users. The processors are designed to deliver cutting-edge performance with low power consumption.

AI-enabled PCs are capable of running large language models (LLMs) and apps powered by the technology directly on the device instead of the cloud.

Leveraging Ryzen AI processors will enable enterprises to provide more dedicated AI processing power than previous generations, according to AMD. The company states that these chips will be available from the second quarter of 2024.

AMD: Powering the next generation of AI

AI PCs are equipped with processors designed to perform AI tasks that include real-time language translation and summarisation. 

According to AMD, the new Ryzen AI-enabled processors will help transform user experience with AI, offering next-generation performance for collaboration, content creation and data and analytics workloads.

Likewise, AMD states that its PRO technologies will allow IT managers within a business to unlock manageability features to make operations simpler. It is also the hope that they will be able to complete PC deployment faster across the organisation, built-in security features for chip-to-cloud defence from sophisticated attacks and offer unprecedented stability, reliability and platform longevity for enterprise software.

“AMD delivers the broadest portfolio of AI technologies to address the needs of the modern business. As we continue to expand our AI PC leadership, we are bringing more power and efficiency to a wide array of desktops and mobile PCs,” says Jack Huynh, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Computing and Graphics Group at AMD. 

“Our latest PRO series processors set a new standard for premium computing experiences and help businesses deploy AI capabilities across their PCs with leadership performance and security.”

As increasing numbers of businesses are keen to deploy AI across their PC fleets, Ryzen PRO 8040 promises to deliver highly efficient processing performance for intensive AI workloads.

AMD even states that the latest series delivers up to 72% faster performance and 84% less power for video conferencing with or without AI experiences enabled. PCs powered by the Ryzen PRO 8040 Series processor will also be among the first to incorporate WiFi-7 technology, offering cutting-edge connectivity and setting a new industry standard.

Remaining competitive in a booming AI chip market

With the new Ryzen release, AMD is also expanding its partnership with tech giant Microsoft to expand Microsoft Copilot features. This aims to bring more AI capabilities to Windows systems and expand productivity, security and everyday business use for business customers.

In line with intensified enterprise AI demands, AMD has been a leader in the global chip market, with its share prices increasing steadily over the past few months.

The company has continued to ramp up its global investments into AI technology and is focusing on developing forward-thinking solutions across its entire product portfolio. Just recently in April 2024, AMD announced a collaboration with BlackBerry designed to revolutionise next-generation robotic systems.
