Official news about Ryzen Pro has finally arrived and The Tech Report was right on top of it. This is the first we have seen of the "3" parts, a Ryzen 3 Pro 1300 and Ryzen 3 Pro 1200, their four non-SMT cores clocked at a decent 3.5/3.7GHz and 3.1/3.4GHz respectively. That makes the Ryzen 3 Pro 1300 essentially the same chip as the Ryzen 5 Pro 1500 but with half the total cache and without multi-threading, theoretically reducing the price. Five of the six new parts have a TDP of 65W with only the top tier Ryzen 7 Pro 1700X hitting 95W, with its 8 cores, 16 threads operating at 3.5/3.7GHz.
The speeds and core counts are not the most important features of these chips however, it is the features they share with AMD's soon to arrive EPYC chips. AMD Secure Processor features, TPM 2.0 and DASH which offers features similar to Intel's vPro architecture. This one area in which AMD offers a broader choice of products than Intel whose Core i3 parts do not support enterprise features; at least not yet. Click the link above to check out more.
