AMD launches GPU-equipped Ryzen Pros
By Thom Holwerda on 2018-05-15 09:49:06

The first Ryzen Pros had a major omission, however: they didn't include integrated GPUs. Corporate desktops and laptops, typically used for Office, Web browsing, and other low-intensity tasks, overwhelmingly use integrated GPUs rather than discrete ones; they simply don't need anything more powerful. The need for separate GPUs meant that the first-generation Ryzen Pros had only very limited appeal in their target corporate market.

The new processors, however, follow in the footsteps of the Ryzens with integrated Vega graphics launched in February, pairing a single core complex (CCX; a bundle of four cores/eight threads and a shared level 3 cache) with a Vega GPU. This makes them a complete solution for the corporate desktop.

These Ryzen processors with built-in Vega graphics are great for relatively affordable computer builds designed for simple office work, such as my translation work. Right now, I work and play games on the same machine, but I intend to move work to a separate, lighter computer so I can be a bit more aggressive in updating the hardware in my gaming PC. Ryzen processors with built-in Vega graphics are great for this.

RE[6]: If you want affordable

Well, maybe you should consider something else than MS products to work everywhere. Maybe you should consider alternatives also on the software side.

Not just for office work

They're also quite decent for most games... For office work, even a 2-decade old Matrox Millenium G200 PCI (not Express :P ...I have such in an old stationary PC) would do the trick. :P
