AMD Athlon Silver 3050e vs AMD Athlon 300U vs AMD Ryzen 5 2400G
AMD Athlon Silver 3050e► remove from comparison
The AMD Athlon Silver 3050e (Codename Dali) is a mobile APU that integrates two Zen cores (with SMT, therefore 4 threads) clocked at 1.4 to 2.8 GHz. The TDP is specified at 6 Watt and therefore the chip can be passively cooled. The integrated Radeon graphics card offers 3 CUs at up to 1000 MHz (Radeon RX Vega 3). The dual channel memory controller supports only DDR4-2400. The chip is manufactured on a 14 nm node and officially counted to the 3000 series of mobile processors.
The AMD Athlon Silver 3050e is the fastest 6W CPU of the Dali SoCs. The slower AMD 3015e and 3020e range below and are compared to the Celeron N4120. Therefore, the Athlon 3050e should reach a level of a Pentium N5000 and therefore still positioned in the entry level of CPUs in 2020. It is best suited for light tasks.

Much like Intel's N-class Celeron and Pentium processors, AMD's 3050e has a 6 W TDP (also known as the long-term power limit). This CPU is built on a 14 nm process making for subpar energy efficiency.
AMD Athlon 300U► remove from comparison
The AMD Athlon 300U is a mobile entry level dual core SoC that was announced in January 2019. It combines two Zen cores (with SMT / Hyperthreading so running 4 threads) clocked at 2.4 - 3.3 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 3 graphics card with 3 CUs (192 Shaders) clocked at up to 1000 MHz. Specified at 15 Watt TDP, the SoC is intended for thin mid-range laptops. It is quite similar to the AMD Ryzen 3 3200U (2.6 - 3.5 GHz).
Compared to the Picasso APUs of the Ryzen 3000 series, the Athlon 300U is still based on the first generation of the 2000 series. Only the PRO variant is based on the new Zen+ microarchitecture that should lead to a 3% IPS (performance per clock) improvement.
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 Athlon 300U only supports 3 instead of 4 displays in total.
Performance wise, the Athlon 300 should be slightly slower than the Ryzen 3 2200U (2.5 - 3.4 GHz Dual Core with SMT).
AMD Ryzen 5 2400G► remove from comparison
The AMD Ryzen 5 2400G is a desktop APU that was announced in early 2018. It is the fastest Raven Ridge APU at that time and features all four Zen cores (8 threads due to SMT support) clocked at 3.6 - 3.9 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 11 graphics card with 11 CUs (all of the 704 Shaders on the chip) clocked at up to 1250 MHz. The integrated dual-channel memory controller supports up to DDR-2933. The TDP is specified at 65 Watt and the CPU, GPU and memory are unlocked for overclocking.
