Chromebook: Powered by AMD Ryzen and Athlon 3000 Series

AMD Chrome Book

So far, Google laptops, the famous Chromebook with operating system ChromeOS (with Linux kernel), they have been a terrain in which only Intel chips, such as Atom, Pentium, and Celeron, as well as ARM-based chips, have been able to enter. But AMD was totally alien to these teams ...

That has now changed with the new Zen, like the Ryzen 3000 Series and AMD Athlon 3000 Series. Those chips could start to power the upcoming Chromebook laptops, which is a great idea for fans of the green firm who want one of these laptops from Google.

According to AMD, the sales of these teams have not stopped increasing since 2013, more now with the teleworking and distance studies in times of pandemic. In fact, it is not the first time that Chromebooks have been one of the outstanding products in terms of sales on Amazon. And it is that they provide a stable, robust, and very secure operating system, compatible with Android apps, well integrated with Google's cloud services, and cheap.

In 2019 there was a increase of 8.1% in sales of these computers, and that's why it is a juicy field for AMD, which is why it has introduced three processors for Chromebooks:

  • Ryzen 7 3700C, which will be the most powerful of all. With 1.4Ghz Radeon graphics and 10 graphics cores. Based on Zen + and manufactured in 12nm.
  • Ryzen 5 3500C, the intermediate. With integrated 1.2Ghz Rdeon GPU with 8 graphics cores. Based on Zen + and manufactured with 12nm.
  • Ryzen 3 3259C, the lowest performing of the three. With 1.2Ghz Radeon GPU and 3 graphics cores. Based on Zen + and manufactured in 14nm.

but there more chips available from AMD for Chromebooks, this time for those who don't need as much performance

  • Athlon 3150C, based on Zen and created with 14nm node. It will have 2 cores and 4 threads. The integrated GPU is the Radeon 1.1Ghz tri-core graphics.
  • Athon 3050C, based on Zen and created with 14nm photolithography. It will have 2 cores and no SMT (2 wires). The integrated GPU is a Radeon 1.1Ghz dual core.

All 5 chips have a 15w TDP, ideal for this type of notebook.

Brands like Lenovo, HP and ASUS will be in charge of assembling the Chomebooks with AMD ...
