AMD Athlon Gold 3150C + Athlon Silver 3050C Revealed!

AMD Athlon Gold 3150C + Athlon Silver 3050C Revealed!

AMD just introduced the Athlon Gold 3150C and Athlon Silver 3050C mobile processors with Radeon Graphics!

Here is what you need to know about the new AMD Athlon 3000 C-Series mobile APUs!

 

Athlon Gold 3150C + Athlon Silver 3050C : Zen Comes To Chromebooks!

The two new AMD Athlon 3000 C-Series mobile processors come with integrated Radeon Graphics cores. That makes them APUs, instead of pure processors.

Built on the older Zen architecture and fabricated on the 14 nm process technology, they are designed to power Chromebooks.

At launch, AMD is introducing these two Athlon 3000 C-Series processors, both with a 15 W TDP :

  • AMD Athlon Gold 3150C : 2C/4T | up to 3.3 GHz | 5 MB cache | 3 graphics cores
  • AMD Athlon Silver 3050C : 2C/2T | up to 3.2 GHz | 5 MB cache | 2 graphics cores

These Athlon 3000 C-Series processors will be used in mid-level Chromebooks, offering better performance than the old AMD A-Series APUs, but less than the AMD Ryzen 3000 C-Series processors.

The AMD A-Series APUs, with a 6 W TDP, will continue to ship in entry-level Chromebooks.

Although they are not part of these processors, Chromebooks based on the AMD Athlon 3000 C-Series will feature Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 connectivity.

AMD Athlon PRO 3000 Desktop APUs : All You Need To Know!

Together with the Ryzen PRO 4000 Series, AMD also unveiled the Athlon PRO 3000 Series with Radeon Graphics!

Here is what you need to know about the new AMD Athlon PRO 3000 desktop APUs!

 

AMD Athlon PRO 3000 Desktop APUs with Radeon Graphics!

Unlike the recently released Ryzen 3000 XT series, the Athlon PRO 3000 desktop APUs come with integrated Radeon Graphics cores. That makes them APUs, instead of pure processors.

These Athlon PRO models are part of the 3rd Gen Ryzen processor family, and based on the AMD Zen 2 architecture.

At launch, AMD is introducing three Athlon 4000 G-Series processors :

  • AMD Athlon Gold PRO 3150G : 4C/4T | up to 3.9 GHz | 6 MB cache | 3 graphics cores | 65W TDP
  • AMD Athlon Gold PRO 3150GE : 4C/4T | up to 3.8 GHz | 6 MB cache | 3 graphics cores35W TDP
  • AMD Athlon Silver PRO 3125GE : 2C/4T | 3.4 GHz | 5 MB cache | 3 graphics cores35W TDP

AMD Athlon PRO 3000 Series : Price + Availability

Unfortunately, all three Athlon PRO desktop APUs will be limited to the OEM market initially.

AMD does not plan to introduce them to the retail market, until later. So there is no information on their price or retail availability.

AMD expects desktops with these processors to ship from system integrators starting today, 21 July 2020, and from AMD OEM partners like Lenovo and HP starting in Q4 2020.

AMD Athlon 3000 Mobile Processors : A Quick Primer!

Together with the Ryzen 4000 Mobile series, AMD also introduced the Athlon 3000 mobile processors with Radeon Graphics for mainstream laptops!

Here is EVERYTHING AMD has revealed so far about their Athlon 3000 mobile processors!

 

AMD Athlon 3000 Mobile Processors : A Quick Primer!

The AMD Athlon 3000 mobile processors appears to be a rehash of last year’s Athlon 300 mobile processor.

It maintains the same 15W TDP, with the same 2-core, 4-thread configuration, as well as integrated Radeon Vega Graphics.

AMD is introducing two new SKUs – the Athlon Gold 3150U and the Athlon Silver 3050U.

There is nothing new about the Athlon 3000 mobile processors. From what we can tell, the AMD Athlon Gold 3150U is a renamed Athlon 300U from last year.

The AMD Athlon Silver 3050U, on the other hand, not only has 100 MHz lower base and boost clocks, it also removes support for simultaneous multi-threading.

AMD Athlon 3000 Mobile Processor Performance

AMD is targeting the Athlon Gold 3150U at the Intel Pentium Gold 5405U mobile processor. Here is how they compare, based on AMD’s internal tests :

The AMD Athlon Gold 3150U’s performance advantage over the Intel Pentium Gold 5405U varies between 39% and 90%.

But we should point out that the Pentium Gold 5405U has a fixed 2.3 GHz clock speed, and half the L2 and L3 cache.
