CES 2019: AMD announces new mobile processor line-up

The new AMD Ryzen 3000 Series mobile processors are the pick of the bunch and will provide "best-in-class performance", in both ultrathin and gaming laptops, reckons AMD.

Asus has launched a new range of Chromebooks, alongside its first ever Chrome OS tablet at CES 2019. The semiconductor major also unveiled AMD Athlon 300 Series Mobile Processors that power mainstream notebooks with "Zen" core and optimised 7th-Gen AMD A-Series chips for the first ever AMD-powered mainstream Chromebooks at the CES 2019 here.

Among the features inherent in the new product series, the company's announcement continues, are a focus on durability, with spill- and tamper-resistant keyboards as well as all-around rubber bumpers. The 10mm thick tablet has been created to be dropped from up to 1m with a rubberised finish and sports a USB-C connector for charging and connecting other devices.

It too will be powered by an Intel Celeron processor, come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. Asus says that the new models will be available in the coming months with configurations and pricing to be announced nearer the time. Strong, tempered glass covers the 9.7-inch QXGA display, and a stylus is also included. Under the hood, it is powered by Google-optimised OP1 hexa-core processor coupled with 4GB RAM, 32GB of internal memory, microSD support, and charging via USB Type-C. The Chromebook 315 features a 15.6-inch display with a native resolution of 1366x768 pixels. There are two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, two USB Type-A 2.0 ports, a microSD card reader, and a webcam. AMD believes that its competition is "underserving the performance of the market", deciding to make its own push by introducing A4 and A6-powered Chromebooks. There are USB-C ports on both sides, as well a USB-A connectivity option and an audio jack. There's also an option to pick one with a full-HD display.

Last but not least, the C403 is being described in some circles as basically just a larger version of the C204. The system is rated for up to 10 hours of battery life.
