AMD annoncerer 7th Gen Bristol Ridge PRO APU'er med udvidet support

There are a number of directions for ‘professional grade’ processors in the market, varying from embedded to long-life support to server functionality. AMD’s PRO lines of processors are akin to their consumer counterparts, except they run a guaranteed lifecycle of support with ‘image stability’ (guaranteed OS images) and extended OEM warranties. AMD’s PRO line typically covers both embedded systems via the BGA lower parts and commercial/enterprise systems with socketed units. This week AMD is announcing their PRO line using the latest AMD microarchitecture, Bristol Ridge, along with continued support for customer requested features.

If you’ve ever browsed for an OEM system, or in a brick-and-mortar shop, you may have come across a system labeled something along the lines of ‘PRO A8’ using an AMD APU. I recently wrote a small news piece which involved et HP-system in my local store with an OEM-only APU. These PRO parts enable an OEM to build a particular system, either as a business-to-business sale or directly to customers, and guarantee a fixed longevity for replacements to that system. This is a requirement for a lot of government and business electronic installations – the ability to replace like-for-like in the event of failure. AMD states that the unit shipments of their PRO processor line for commercial, enterprise and the public sector has risen by 45% since mid-2014, or a 20.4% compound annual growth rate (CAGR).

Processorerne annonceret i dag er direkte analoger af forbrugerkvalitetsprocessorer annonceret for et par uger siden, identiske i specifikationer, men med PRO i navnet og et direkte fokus på supportstrukturer, ledelse, virtualisering, sikkerhed og præstations sammenligninger.

Alle disse processorer understøtter DDR4-2400 som standard og tilbyder understøttelse af USB 3.1 (10 Gbps) via det relevante chipsæt og Type-C med en chip til styring, der understøtter reversibel indsættelse (dette er det samme som forbrugerplatformen). Disse nye processorer er alle stikdåser, der er designet til AM4-platformen for nu, hvor BGA-komponenter sandsynligvis vil blive erklæret senere ned langs linjen.

Med PRO APU'erne bruger AMD en ARM Cortex-A5 til at implementere ARM TrustZone, der tilbyder software agnostic (sammenlignet med Intel, der ikke) understøtter hardwarebaseret sikkerhed. Dette inkluderer Secure Boot, Content Protection, pr. Applikationssikkerhed, fTPM 2.0 og support til Microsoft Device Guard, Windows Hej, uafhængig fingeraftrykssikkerhed, databeskyttelse og Bitlocker blandt andet. AMD understøtter dette via DASH-styringsprotokollen, som i sidste ende er CPU-agnostisk og tillader brugere af andre DASH-systemer at komme op til fart.

AMD placerer APU'erne for at være sammenlignelige med forskellige Intel-modparter.

Performance-wise, for the launch, AMD states that in small form factors at 35W and mid-tier at 65W, performance compared to Intel is within 8% for the CPU, but AMD can offer +50-95% in graphics based or graphics accelerated workloads. In this case, AMD was positioning the PRO A12-9800E against the Core i5-6500T for the CPU comparison, and the PRO A12-9800 against the i5-6500 for the graphics comparison. We’ve asked to get these processors in for testing in order to compare.

De første systemer, der bruger de nye 7th Gen PRO APU'er, er et sæt HP Elitedesk 705 G3 systemer, i Mini, SFF og mini-tower formfaktorer. På grund af den måde, hvorpå disse kommercielle systemer fremmes, vil priser og specifikationer meget afhænge af supportkontrakten i takt med erhvervskunderne. AMD er opsat på at påpege, at andre kunder vil frigive deres Bristol Ridge PRO-baserede systemer i de kommende måneder.
