The AMD Ryzen 3 3200U is a 64-bit dual-core x86 entry level mobile processor that was launched in the market by AMD in the first quarter of 2019. The processor is based on the Zen+ microarchitecture (codename Picasso) that is built on the 14nm processing technology. The Ryzen 3 3200U has a default TDP of 15W and the model also supports a configurable TDP of 12 – 15W. Note: The chip has no fault tolerance technologies onboard.
The AMD Ryzen 3 3200U processors support a multiplicity of different processors and platforms such as Windows 10, Android, and Linux operating systems. The processor’s operating system is Windows 10 Home 64-bit edition. The chip offers support for DDR4 memory with speeds of up to 2133MHz in single-channel configuration, and speeds of up to 2400MHz when in a dual-channel configuration. It also includes an 8MB shared level 2 high-speed cache with a 512KB per core L2 cache. The processor also includes a 4MB L3 cache.
The performance of this Ryzen 3 3200U processor is the same as the Intel Core i5-7200U processor, but the AMD processor is less expensive. The Ryzen 3 3200U has two physical cores, compared with two for the Intel Core i5-7200U. The base clock speed of the AMD Ryzen 3 is 2.6GHz, which can be boosted up to 3.5GHz; this compares with 2.5GHz base clock and boosts up to 3.1GHz for Intel Core i5-7200U. The GPU on this chip is on par with some gaming laptops that are available today, but it does not have onboard graphics capabilities as the Intel Core i5-7200U does.
This processor features a Radeon Vega 3 graphics processing unit, which is powered by the Vega 3 GPU core (equivalent to 192 of the 704 Shaders processing units) and operates at a frequency of up to 1200MHz. The integrated Radeon graphics processing unit can support up to 4K displays at 60Hz at high-quality settings and supports AMD FreeSync technology. The Vega 3 graphics mostly benefit from the fast dual-channel DDR4-2400 RAM contrary to DDR4-2133 single-channel, which is also possible.
The chip also supports the AMD Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics card that is powered by an incorporated Radeon Vega 3 graphics core that has up to 512 real gaming compute units (ROPs) and 2GBs of video RAM for a few applications and up to 4GBs of memory for most demanding ones.
