  • CES 2019 AMD Officially Unveils Ryzen 3000 Athlon 300 Processor Line-up at Trade Show- Report

It seems that the age of AMD-powered Chromebooks is coming.

When many were expecting CES 2019 to mark the launch of AMD's first 7nm Ryzen chips and Vega 2 graphics cards, Team Red has instead kicked off the show with the somewhat boring announcement of new 12nm Zen+ Ryzen 3000 mobile processors.

Asus has launched a new range of Chromebooks, alongside its first ever Chrome OS tablet at CES 2019.

As far as the other two products announced, the Chromebook Flip C214 is a 2-in-1 that's powered by a dual-core Intel Celeron and up to 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded via microSD. AMD has noticeably been missing from the action until now.


HP and Acer have announced the world's first Chromebook laptops powered by AMD processors at CES 2019. Unlike the Ryzens, the A-Series processors it will come with Radeon R4 and R5 series graphics instead of Radeon Vega Graphics for its integrated graphics. It will have a 14-inch 1,366 x 768 display with a 180-degree hinge, along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of SSD storage. The device has 4GB of RAM, 32GB built-in storage, and 47.36 Wh battery.

Connections include two USB Type-A port, two reversible USB Type-C ports, a microSD card reader, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and for video calling a HD webcam. HP will make this device available in three color options: white, blue and gray.

The 7th Gen AMD A-Series processors powering Chromebooks from global Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) such as Acer and HP, deliver fluid web browsing and effortless everyday productivity for social media, streaming, and web gaming, the company added. It will have Intel's 8th generation Pentium, Core i3, i5, or i7 CPUs inside, depending on which model you want. It will weight 3.7 pounds and have an excellent battery life of up to 13 hours. I wasn't able to use the HP Chromebook 14 in guest mode after a reboot, which is the ideal testing scenario for maximum scoring.

More than just oversized speakers.
