This new tip comes from 91Mobiles, who have spotted the codename ‘Zork’ and specifications like CPU, RAM, and display specs. According to the listing, the Chromebook will be powered by AMD’s Ryzen 3 3250C CPU. Now, if you recall, this is not the first Chromebook with an AMD processor.

HP and Acer were the frontrunners of introducing Chromebooks powered by AMD CPUs back in early 2019. Their Chromebook 14, and 315 respectively were the first Chrome OS devices to be feature AMD’s A4 CPU. Later, a few Chromebooks have hit the market with the latest one being the HP Pro c645 Chromebook Enterprise. It powers the same AMD Ryzen 3 3250 CPU found on this listing.

Moving on, the listing shows the device has a FHD d isplay

with a 1920x1080p resolution and 160 DPI. For memory and GPU, there is a 4GB RAM and AMD Radeon Vega 3 graphics. Previously, a similar device with the codename ‘Zork’ was spotted on Geekbench(via MSP). This including another listing with AMD Ryzen 7 3700C, 8GB RAM denotes that Google might price the Chromebook across segments.

Interestingly, the Google Chromebook in testing seems to run on Android 9 as shown by the listing. However, we feel that it might be due to the emulator testing and the final version will just run Chrome OS. Apart from this, there is no other info on the listing.


Will this debut under the Pixelbook series? Only time will tell. That said, this is not the only Chromebook Google has been working so far. Another Chromebook, likely to be a successor of Pixelbook Go, codenamed ‘Halvor’ with 11th gen Intel CPU, 16GB RAM, Touch screen, 3.5mm jack, and more is in the works.
