AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 3700U vs AMD Ryzen 3 3250U
AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 3700U► remove from comparison
The AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 3700U is a mobile SoC for business laptops that was announced in April 2019. It combines four Zen+ cores (8 threads) clocked at 2.3 - 4 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 10 graphics card with 10 CUs (640 Shaders) clocked at up to 1400 MHz. Specified at 15 Watt TDP, the SoC is intended for thin mid-range laptops. Compared to the similar consumer variant Ryzen 7 3700U, the PRO model features additional management and security features (e.g., full memory encryption) and longer warranty / availability.
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.
AMD states that the Picasso APUs are about 8% faster than the predecessors. Therefore, the Ryzen 7 PRO 3700U should be slightly ahead the Ryzen 7 PRO 2700U.
AMD Ryzen 3 3250U► remove from comparison
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.
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.
