amd athlon

The Athlon Silver 3050e with codename Dali is a mobile APU from AMD launched in the first quarter of 2020. It is a budget-friendly mobile SoC that is designed primarily for everyday home and office tasks. The mobile SoC delivers basic performance, but fair enough for a good web browsing experience, work with word processing or spreadsheet documents, e-mails, and alike. 

The Athlon Silver 3050e mobile APU integrates two Zen cores and capable of processing 4 threads at once with SMT. The SOC has a base clock speed of 1.4 GHz with a boost speed of 2.8 GHz. The Thermal Design Power or TDP is identified at 6 Watt, thus the SoC can be used in a laptop PC even without a fan. 

The Athlon Silver 3050e dual-core SoC comes equipped with an integrated Radeon graphics card called AMD Radeon RX Vega 3 that offers 3 CUs at the frequency of up to 1 GHz. The SoC has support for a dual-channel memory controller that only supports DDR4-2400 memory modules. 

The Athlon Silver 3050e dual-core SOC is the speediest 6-Watt processor of the Dali SoCs, as of this writing. Mobile APUs such as AMD 3015e and AMD 3020e are mobile processors within the performance range and are comparable to the Intel Celeron N4120. Consequently, the Athlon 3050e should be as powerful as the Intel Pentium N5000 and still be considered as the entry-level mobile processors in 2020. It is suitable for less demanding tasks. 

The Athlon Silver 3050e dual-core SOC has a CPU Mark of 2664. This APU is as powerful as AMD 3015e with a score of 2678, AMD 3020e with a score of 2654, and Pentium N5000 with a rating of 2588.
