Advanced Micro Devices is rolling out its latest processors based on the Zen architecture that will attack the low end of rival Intel’s product line.
The new chips include an Athlon-branded chip that is an accelerated processing unit (APU) that combines graphics and processing on one chip.
The AMD Athlon 200GE with Radeon Vega 3 graphics has two CPU cores and will sell for $55.
The chip combines a Zen-based core with Vega graphics.
AMD’s Zen architecture is a ground up design that AMD started launching in its chips in 2017.
It can process 52 percent more instructions per clock cycle than previous chips, and it has made AMD more competitive than ever with Intel.
