AMD Ryzen 3 3250U

AMD R3 3250U

The AMD Ryzen 3 3250U is a mobile Dual-Core-SoC that was announced in January 2019. It combines two Zen+ cores (with SMT / Hyperthreading so running 4 threads) clocked at 2.6 - 3.5 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 3 graphics card with 3 CUs (192 Shaders) clocked at up to 1200 MHz. Specified at 15 Watt TDP, the SoC is intended for thin mid-range laptops. The difference to the older Ryzen 3 3200U is only the reduced maximum temperature specification of 95 versus 105°C.

In Chromebooks, AMD calles the APU AMD Ryzen 3 3250C, but with the exact same specifications (and performance).

The Picasso SoCs use the Zen+ microarchitecture with slight improvements that should lead to a 3% IPS (performance per clock) improvements. Furthermore, the 12nm process allows higher clock rates at similar power consumptions.

The integrated dual-channel memory controller supports up to DDR4-2400 memory. As the features of the Picasso APUs are the same compared to the Raven Ridge predecessors, we point to our Raven Ridge launch article.

In contrast to the faster quad-core Picasso APUs, the Ryzen 3 3250U only supports 3 instead of 4 displays in total.

AMD states that the Picasso APUs are about 8% faster than the predecessors. Therefore, the Ryzen 3 3250U should be faster than the Ryzen 3 2200U (2.5 - 3.4 GHz Dual Core with SMT).
