AMD Athlon Silver 3050U Budget Laptop Processor
The AMD Athlon Silver 3050U is a budget-friendly laptop processor. It’s geared toward the usual home and office computing tasks. The processor provides basic performance, but good enough for fairly smooth web browsing, work on MS Office-type documents, e-mails, and similar.
Besides the Athlon Silver 3050U, AMD offers the Athlon Gold 3150U, which is slightly faster. These processors with two cores and two computing threads per core are similar to the AMD Ryzen 3 3200U / 3250U with four cores but a single thread per core.
As for graphics rendering, which is important for gaming performance, the Athlon Silver 3050U features a very basic Radeon integrated graphics processor with only two graphics processing cores, as opposed to three on the Athlon Gold and Ryzen 3. All of these graphics processors support only light gaming and the Athlon Silver 3050U is the slowest one among the trio in this aspect.
