Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announced new Ryzen 5000 C-Series processors, bringing the “Zen 3” architecture to premium Chrome OS devices for work and collaboration. The new processors offer all-day battery life1 and industry-leading performance with up to eight high-performance x86 cores, most available for Chrome OS2. These industry-leading AMD processors enable expansion beyond education into the growing consumer and commercial Chrome OS markets.
With improved Radeon™ graphics, Ryzen 5000 C-Series processors for Chrome are expected to deliver up to 67% faster response3 and up to 85% better graphics performance4 than the previous generation. Wi-Fi® 6E and Bluetooth® 5.2 provide users with advanced connectivity and more data bandwidth than ever before.
“AMD is raising the performance bar for modern Chromebooks,” said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, Client business unit, AMD. “With up to eight cores, the Ryzen 5000 C-Series processors give Chromebook users the flexibility to stay disconnected all day without sacrificing performance and productivity.”
AMD Ryzen 5000 C Series processors will soon be arriving in systems from major OEM partners in the consumer, education and business markets. The Ryzen 7 5825C processor will be launched first in the HP Elite c645 G2 Chromebook Enterprise from June, enabling multitasking and incredible battery life for the hybrid workforce. Later this year, the Acer Chromebook Spin 514 will bring productivity and collaboration to consumers and business customers in a durable and efficient convertible design.
