Introducing Developer Software for Ryzen AI

Ryzen AI software is now widely available, making it possible for developers to build and deploy machine learning models trained in frameworks like PyTorch or TensorFlow and run them on select laptops powered by Ryzen AI.

The 1.0 version of Ryzen AI enables ONNX Runtime applications and offers a pre-optimized model zoo on Hugging Face, allowing users to get started and up and running AI models in minutes.

Laptops with Ryzen AI can offload AI models to the NPU, freeing up the CPU to reduce power consumption while extending battery life.

AMD also recently announced the Pervasive AI Developers Contest to challenge developers to create innovative AI applications with use cases in data centers, workstations and laptops, gaming, robotics, and more. For more information, click here.

The AMD Ryzen 8040 series mobile processors are expected to be broadly available from brands including Acer, ASUS, HP, Lenovo, and Razer starting Q1 2024.
