AMD Athlon Gold 3150U Budget Laptop Processor

The AMD Athlon Gold 3150U is a laptop processor you can typically find in affordable Windows-based notebooks. It can be classified as a lower-mid-range laptop processor that can handle the routine computing tasks very well. For heavier tasks recommended are at least mid-range processors, such as the AMD Ryzen or Intel Core i series.

The Athlon Gold 3150U performs similar to the more popular AMD Ryzen 3 3200 / 3250U. The main difference between them is that the Athlon is a dual-core processor with two computing threads per core, while the Ryzen 3 has four cores with a single computing thread per core. The CPUs feature the same 3-core AMD Radeon integrated graphics, but on the Athlon it’s a bit slower (1000 vs 1200 MHz). The graphics processors in both cases are suitable only for the lightest games.

In the same Ahtlon lineup, AMD also offers the Athlon Silver 3050U, which is a slower variant.
