AMD deploys artillery in ‘chromebooks’: its Ryzen 5000 C ‘Zen 3’ chips promise us up to 13 hours of autonomy

The inertia gained by AMD since the arrival of the first revision of the Zen architecture has been very favorable, but the one that has managed to stand out resoundingly has been the Zen 3 microarchitecturewhich arrived on desktop PCs at the end of 2020, and only a few months later it landed on laptops as well.

Already then the interesting power/watt ratio that these microprocessors invited us to anticipate that they would eventually reach the Chromebookand, although they have been slow to do so, the first Zen 3 microarchitecture chips for these teams are already here.

AMD introduced four new Ryzen 5000 processors belonging to the C series which are capable of simultaneously processing up to 16 execution threads, integrate Vega graphics and have a 15 watt TDP. Moreover, like the other processors in this family, they are manufactured by TSMC using its 7nm FinFET photolithography. Sounds really good.

AMD Ryzen 5000 C Series: Technical Specifications

Up to 16 execution threads and 13 hours of battery life

The new Ryzen 5000 C processors aren’t the only chips AMD has to compete with in the CPU segment. Chromebook. In fact, these CPUs will coexist with the Ryzen and Athlon 3000C, which implement the Zen microarchitecture and will now be relegated to the mid-range. The Ryzen 5000 Cs will be positioned in the premium segment, so they will be found in the most ambitious teams in this category.

As expected, the new chips, according to AMD, give us higher performance (the Ryzen 3000 C processes a maximum of 8 execution threads simultaneously) and a maximum autonomy of 13 hours. The most ambitious of them all, the Ryzen 7 5825C, runs at a maximum clock rate of 4.5GHz and packs 20MB of Level 2 and 3 cache, specs that put it on paper on par with many CPUs . Ryzen 5000 for mainstream laptops.

In the next slide, AMD compares the performance of the new Ryzen 5000 C with that of the Ryzen 3000 C and, as we can see, the new chips impose themselves with an insulting clarity. The biggest difference comes in the multi-threaded test case, but that’s understandable considering that the Ryzen 7 5825C simultaneously processes 16 sonand the Ryzen 7 3700C can only handle 8 threads at a time.

One of the distinctive features of the Chromebook, beyond its price, if we compare them to classic laptops, it is its autonomy. And in this territory, what AMD promises us also looks good. According to this company its Ryzen 5 5625C bend clearly to an Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor, although ideally we should take it wisely until we get a chance to check it out when one of the new Chromebook fall into our hands.

The first “chromebooks” with Ryzen 5000 C processor are about to arrive in stores

AMD has confirmed that in the coming weeks the first Chromebook equipped with the new Ryzen 5000 C processors with Zen 3 microarchitecture. HP Elite C645 G2 will integrate up to a Ryzen 7 5825C chip, and the Acer Spin 514 It will also offer us this same CPU in its most ambitious configuration. Both computers have SSD storage with PCIe 3.0 NVMe interface, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2.
