The AMD Athlon Silver 3050U is a 2-core processor for very small devices or inexpensive notebooks or Chromebooks. The processors base frequency is 2.3 GHz. The processor can increase the clock frequency up to 3.2 GHz via Turbo mode when only one core is used. If both cores are utilized, the processor is only allowed to run them with its base clock of 2.3 GHz. The two CPU cores have to make do with a rather small L3 cache of 4 MB.

The AMD Athlon Silver 3050U is based on the AMD Dali design, which uses Zen+ cores. The processor is still manufactured in the older 14 nm process to keep the processors price low. AMD normally manufactures the 2020 processors (AMD Zen 2) in 7 nm. The 15-watt processor can also be operated with a TDP of 25 watts, but this hardly increases the speed. This is because the 2-core processor also manages with 15 watts. With a cTDP of 12 watts, some more energy can be saved, but the performance hardly changes here either.

The processor has AMDs Radeon Vega 3 Graphics, which has 3 execution units and clocks with up to 1.1 GHz. This is the smallest configuration of the AMD Vega iGPUs. Even undemanding games cannot usually be rendered smoothly, so the graphics are not aimed at gamers, but solely ensure that one or more screens can be controlled without having to resort to a dedicated graphics solution.

The small AMD Athlon Silver 3050U can address up to 32 GB of working memory (DDR4-2400) in dual-channel mode. The memory bandwidth can be greatly increased by using two memory channels, which can have a big impact depending on the application. The processor provides 8 PCIe 3.0 lines for connecting devices.
