HP has announced an Athlon or Ryzen-based model to complement their Intel-based HP Pro C640 which released earlier in August. The new AMD Athlon C and Ryzen C options combine with up to 16 GB RAM and a 128 GB NVMe drive to create an impressive Chromebook.

HP is expanding their offering of cloud-orientated enterprise devices with the HP Pro C645 Enterprise Chromebook. The C645 compliments the C640, with the one real difference sitting at its core — the Ryzen C and Athlon C processors. These C-series CPUs are directly comparable to the already existing U-series, with the ‘C’ designation identifying that these are for installing in Chromebooks.

Regarding business use, the strong multicore performance from Ryzen will be beneficial in a typical daily workload. AMD is also promoting Ryzen C as having the most powerful GPU in a Chromebook, but the uses here are more limited in a business context.
