For Chromebooks, AMD has unveiled Ryzen 5000 CPUs with significant performance and battery life improvements.

The vast majority of Chromebooks available today are powered by Intel or ARM-based CPUs made by companies like MediaTek. There are new possibilities available as Chrome OS enters a new phase that includes support for Steam. AMD has introduced the Ryzen 5000 C-Series CPUs for Chromebooks today.

AMD entered the Chromebook market in 2020 with a limited selection of models aimed at the entry-level and mid-range sectors. Because they utilized AMD’s older architecture, they were generally fine but didn’t particularly distinguish out from Intel contemporaries.

AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs, which will soon be available in some mid-range and high-end Chromebooks, promise to significantly improve battery life and performance for devices running Google’s lightweight yet ever-capable OS. Based on AMD’s Zen 3 architecture, which initially appeared in traditional PCs in 2020, Ryzen 5000 C-Series CPUs for Chromebooks were released in 2018. Since then, AMD has launched Ryzen 6000 .

What benefits do Chromebooks get with Ryzen 5000? There are undoubtedly some potent alternatives available, ranging from the more popular Ryzen 3 to the more powerful Ryzen 7 series. With the Ryzen 7 5825C processor, AMD claims that the Ryzen 5000 C-Series will offer Chromebooks the first 8-core x86 CPU.

The whole starting lineup is as follows:

5825C Ryzen 7 8-core, 16-thread Zen 3 processor, up to 4.5GHz 1.8GHz Vega visuals 5625C for Ryzen 5 7-core, 4.3GHz, 6-core, 12-thread Zen 3 1.6GHz Vega visuals 5425C Ryzen 3 8-thread, 4 cores Up to 4.1GHz/6-core on Zen 3 1.5GHz Vega visuals 5125C Ryzen 3 4-thread, 2-core Zen 3 at up to 3.0GHz and 1.2GHz per core. Vega visuals The largest promise made by AMD regarding how these chips would help users of Chromebooks is that they may save up to 94% more battery life than their Intel equivalents when using the Ryzen 5000 C-Series chips. Using the Crxprt 2 battery benchmark, AMD obtains that precise result when comparing the Ryzen 5 5625C to the Intel Core i5-1135G7. According to the manufacturer, some models can support battery life of up to 13 hours.

In terms of performance, AMD claims that its Ryzen 3000 C-Series CPUs can multitask up to 107% better than comparable Intel chips and up to 25% better than comparable Intel chips. According to both tests, web surfing and graphics performance have reportedly improved as well, at least when comparing Ryzen 7’s maximum performance to the Intel Core i7. AMD also emphasizes support for secure startup and fast wake.

As of this year, Chromebooks from Acer and HP will include Ryzen 5000 C-Series processors. The Ryzen 5125C-powered Acer Chromebook Spin 514 will go on sale in Q3 for a starting price of $579. Early in June, HP Elite C645 G2 Chromebooks will be available for $559, but the company hasn’t yet revealed which specific CPUs will be used.
