AMD Athlon Silver 3050GE – The AMD Athlon Silver 3050GE is a desktop processor with 2 cores, launched in July 2020. It is part of the Athlon lineup, using the Zen+ (Dali) architecture with Socket AM4. Thanks to AMD Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT) the core-count is effectively doubled, to 4 threads. Athlon Silver 3050GE has 4MB of L3 cache and operates at 3.4 GHz. AMD is making the Athlon Silver 3050GE on a 12 nm production node, the transistor count is unknown. The silicon die of the chip is not fabricated at AMD, but at the foundry of GlobalFoundries. The multiplier is locked on Athlon Silver 3050GE, which limits its overclocking potential.
With a TDP of 35 W, the Athlon Silver 3050GE consumes only little energy. AMD’s processor supports DDR4 memory with adual-channel interface. The highest officially supported memory speed is 2933 MHz, but with overclocking (and the right memory modules) you can go even higher. For communication with other components in the system, Athlon Silver 3050GE uses a PCI-Express Gen 4 connection. This processor features the Radeon Vega 3 integrated graphics solution.
Hardware virtualization is available on the Athlon Silver 3050GE, which greatly improves virtual machine performance. Programs using Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) can run on this processor, boosting performance for calculation-heavy applications. Besides AVX, AMD is including the newer AVX2 standard, too, but not AVX-512.
