AMD is on the verge of revealing Zen-3 CPUs and Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards in their October events but before that, there’s been a huge announcement for laptop users with Ryzen and Athlon 3000 C-Series being implemented in Chromebooks.

These new processors will be built on Zen architecture with best-in-class AMD Radeon graphics giving Chromebooks up to 251% better graphics performance, up to 104% faster office productivity performance, and up to 152% better photo editing performance compared to previous generation AMD Chromebooks. Participating manufacturers include Acer, ASUS, HP, and Lenovo who will be introducing a whole new range of Chromebooks from budget to premium, catering for the variety of the public’s needs. 

Here are the full specs for the announced Chromebook CPUs:

This is clearly an exciting time for AMD and it’s great to see them trying to bring the new tech, made for PCs, over to the portable market. “Whether users are online, offline, on-the-go or at home, AMD Ryzen processor-based and Athlon processor-based Chromebooks deliver the combined CPU, graphics and overall performance needed to stay productive and breeze through the high demands of distance learning and remote working,” said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, Client Compute, AMD. “We are pleased to be working with Acer, ASUS, Google, HP, and Lenovo to significantly expand the number of AMD-powered Chromebooks and deliver more powerful options with the first of many AMD Ryzen-based Chromebook systems.”

All in all, this is great for consumers, and will now be able to pick up a budget-friendly laptop that’s much more powerful than those that are currently on the market. Let’s see what AMD has up their sleeves in their October announcements where there could be a whole host of new laptop processors coming then too.
