AMD Ryzen 3 3250U
The AMD Ryzen 3 3250U is a dual-core SoC that was announced in 2020. The Ryzen 3 features two Zen cores (with SMT support for a total of 4 threads) clocked at 2.6 GHz to 3.5 GHz and a Radeon RX Vega 3 graphics adapter with 3 CUs (192 unified shaders) clocked at up to 1,200 MHz. The default TDP is 15 W which makes the Ryzen a good fit for thin mid-range laptops. The specifications are similar to the older Ryzen 3 3200U with the lower max. operating temperature (95 °C versus 105 °C) being the only difference betwen the two.
A special edition of the Ryzen 3 3250U designed specifically for Chromebooks is called the AMD Ryzen 3 3250C. The specifications and performance appear to be identical between the two.
In comparison to the faster Ryzen 3000 CPUs, the 3250U is not using the newer Zen+ microarchitecture and is still manufactured in 14nm. Compared to the old Ryzen 3 2200U, the 3200U therefore only offers a slightly higher clock speed.
The Ryzen 3 is manufactured on a 14 nm process and compatible with single-channel or dual-channel DDR4-2400 RAM. Please go to our Raven Ridge launch article for details on the architecture and more.
