AMD has unveiled a line of new chips for Chromebooks that basically put some of last year’s best laptop processors into Chrome OS notebooks like the new Acer Chromebook Spin 514 and HP Elite c645.

In other recent tech news from around the web, NVIDIA’s GeForce Now game streaming platform is bringing 4K support to PC and Mac, Microsoft and Epic have teamed up to allow you to stream Fortnite for free using Xbox Cloud Gaming – even on iOS devices, where Fortnite has been kicked out of the App Store, and specs for the upcoming ZTE Axon 40 Pro and Axon 40 Ultra have leaked.

  1. Also, the Pro1-X looks amazing and is just the type of phone I want! Nice to see they have reached shipping status!

  2. Maybe I’m missing something, but what is the point of streaming Fortnite? It’s already free and available for all platforms, right? Most modern phones should be able to play it, and so can other portables like the Nintendo Switch. So why play it with input lag, lower image quality and larger data use due to streaming instead of just playing the native version?

    1. The thing is, it isn’t available on all platforms. Due to the ongoing issue with apple over payment systems, you can’t get the game from the Apple app store.

      So this is basically Microsoft trying to take advantage of the situation and convert some iPhone users to Microsoft services.

      At least as far as I can tell, anyway.

  3. I like the Ryzen 3 5125C. I would think that more than 2cores/4threads would be a waste on a Chromebook. I would be curious to see the die size differences between the 2core and 4core. If it is less than 10%, the 4core would be the sweet spot.

    1. The 15W number is maximum. I would be interested to see the typical power profiles… I would expect them to be significantly lower than Intel’s equivalent performance SOCs.
