AMD Makes Laptop, Chromebook Push With New Mobile Processors

AMD Makes Laptop, Chromebook Push With New Mobile Processors”

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.

CES 2019 is turning out to be an excellent event for PC makers to announce new Chromebooks. In the name of connectivity, there are two USB Type-C ports and two USB Type-A ports, a microSD card slot, and a HD webcam for video calling.

HP's new Chromebook 14 officially launched this morning, making it one of two AMD Chromebook launches so far during CES. It has a 1366x768 resolution display. Beside those is a full-size keyboard that ships with backlighting as a standard feature while the edge houses two USB 3.1 Type-C charging ports pulling double duty as a means for data transfers and display-out capabilities. The system is rated for up to 10 hours of battery life. That includes the Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage.

Asus Chromebook range refresh adds Chrome OS tablet alongside new models

Chromebooks have relatively not made much of a hit in Australia so it is unlikely you will see these in many stores but if you do and are looking for a new Chromebook these should be worth a gander with the prices expected to be very affordable - it is an EDU lineup afterall. The laptop will go on sale early this year with multiple processor configuration options. As I said yesterday with the AMD-powered Acer devices, don't expect Pixelbook performance.

HP has unveiled the first device to use AMD's Ryzen 3000 mobile chips. The CT100 will be a new tablet form-factor for Asus, following the lead of the Google Pixel Slate, and feature a 9.7-inch QXGA wide-angle touch display to compete against the iPad. It will come with an 11.6-inch display available in both touch and non-touch variants and is powered by a dual-core Intel Celeron processor as well as 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal memory.

The prices for Acer's Chromebook 315 will start from $279.99 (roughly Rs. 19,471) with availability set for February this year.
