Counting down to AMD’s Computex event in May, AMD’s sales have been on a significant rise this year. Building on their success, AMD has revealed the 2nd Gen mobile processors for ultrabooks. The Ryzen Pro U series is essentially the mobile versions of the Picasso APUs launched at CES 2019. AMD has also announced the Athlon Pro 300U for Chromebooks and the budget-end of the spectrum.

The 2nd Gen Ryzen Pro APUs use the Zen+ design (not to be confused with the Zen2 architecture that will be revealed with the Ryzen 3000 lineup) which boasts reduced cache and memory latency. The new APUs also make use of the 12nm process that provides higher clock speeds with the same TDP rating; offering a boost of 100-200MHz over the previous gen processors.

All the processors come with Radeon Vega graphics that offer better performance in video editing, 3D modeling and visualization workloads. AMD has also provided benchmarks in popular applications like PCMark 10 and Photoshop.

I've damaged way too many processors than I'd like to admit. Music and Sim Racing keep me sane; that is until I get a strange itch to tinker with stuff again.
