AMD Releases New "Zen" Based Athlon Desktop Processors, 2nd Generation Ryzen PRO Desktop Processors

AMD today announced an updated family of AMD Athlon desktop processors with Radeon Vega graphics that have been optimized for everyday PC users: the AMD Athlon 200GE, Athlon 220GE, and Athlon 240GE processor.

Combining the x86 "Zen" core and "Vega" graphics architectures in a System-on-Chip (SOC) design, the Athlon desktop processors offer responsive computing for day-to-day needs like web browsing and video streaming through more advanced workloads like high-definition PC gaming.

AMD also announced the availability of the commercial-grade Athlon PRO 200GE desktop processor, along with three 2nd Gen Ryzen PRO desktop processor models for the commercial, enterprise, and the public sector: the Ryzen 7 PRO 2700X, Ryzen 7 PRO 2700, and Ryzen 5 PRO 2600 processors.

The Athlon PRO 200GE desktop processor is designed to target entry-level users. The efficient "Zen" architecture helps the AMD Athlon 200GE processor stay cool and quiet for reliable computing, while its "Zen" processor and graphics cores enable responsive PC performance for games or HD movies. In addition, the AMD Athlon 200GE processor is supported by the existing AMD Socket AM4 infrastructure for a platform that delivers the latest PC features including DDR4 memory, NVMe storage, 4K display support, USB 3.1 Gen2 support, and that offers an easy upgrade path to even more performance with AMD Ryzen processors and discrete graphics cards.
