AMD Trinity A-Series APU Launched
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
AMD has just launched the succssor to the llano processor: the Trinity APU (Accelerated Processing Unit). The new Trinity line of APU's combine 2-4 Piledriver x86 cores running at between 2.6 - 3.2GHz and an integrated HD 7000-series GPU with up to 384 shaders all on a single 32nm SOI die. This new line of APU's will use the new FM2 socket and supports DDR3-1600 memory speeds. Most impressive of all is the TDP will range from a moderate 35 watts down to an ultra low 17 watts.
Let's see what they had to say:

- Bjorn3D: AMD presents 2012 A-Series APU (Trinity).

- PC Perspective: AMD A10-4600M Trinity For Mobile Review: Trying To Cut The Ivy.
- Tom's Hardware: AMD A10-4600M Review: Mobile Trinity Gets Tested .
While the CPU portion of Trinity is improved over llano it still is nothing to write home about, however its top-end GPU is impressive and noticeably better than any of Intel's IGPs. Overall Trintiy is a very impressive new platform, but is more an evolutionary rather than a revolutionary design.
