AMD shows off Trinity

Written by

Fifty percent faster than Llano
Just as it launched the eagerly awaited Llano APU, AMD has given us a reason not to buy one.

Senior VP Rick Bergman showed off a Trinity based laptop at a Fusion event yesterday, promising to deliver a 50 percent performance boost over Llano. Of course, Trinity is still a long way away and it will appear in about a year’s time, so waiting for it might not be the best idea.

Unlike Llano, which is based on a tweaked Stars core, Trinity is designed around the all new Bulldozer architecture. The details are still sketchy and apart from Bergman’s 50 percent claim there is little to go on. There is no word on graphics performance or clocks, so we are in for a year of rumours and speculation. Not that we mind.

Bergman also commented Fusion sales, saying AMD has managed to ship “millions” thus far and that the number will surpass tens of millions by the end of the year. Some unconfirmed estimates put the total number of Brazos APUs shipped thus far north of six million. Mind you, AMD managed to ship about a million Brazos parts by the end of 2010, before it went on sale, hence it is possible that a similar number of Llano chips are already on their way to retail.

Finally the Bulldozer based Fusion Core. This is the one to wait for. For now though, the Llano will have to do.............

I know its nice to hear that AMD does think about the future and they do have a plan but sometimes i think it can only be bad for immediate sales when they talk about how they will make all current products look shit in 6-12 months.

If AMD made it totally clear that if you buy yourself a Llano computer today then in 12 months all you need to buy is a Trinity CPU and it will all work perfectly then you could understand them talk about future products but to say that you can spend your money now or wait for something much better just doesn't make sense to me.

Not to nitpick, but how is it any different than Intel commenting on Ivy Bridge shortly after Sandy Bridge was released? If anything, I think it was more of a comment meant for OEMs (hey stick with us, we have cool stuff in the pipeline) and share holders. There's always something better around the corner in the computer industry

Will it work on any existing (FM1/AM3+) Boards? If it works on existing FM1 socket, that will be insane (in a good way.)

EDIT: I said "in a good way". Some people are assholes.

Trinity will be a big deal when its released, Bulldozer level CPU power with a mid to high end Radeon GPU built in.

Imagine a gaming PC with no need for a dedicated graphics card, much less heat, less cooling needed, smaller PC cases, smaller HTPC's..

Trinity will be flagship for AMD's Fusion tech

Oh! Wait! Did I say I wanted a Llano in my HP-TM2-successor tablet PC?! I meant a Trinity, yeah, that's it. I got confused because they sound the same. Now gimme! :D

Quoting loadwick:

Trinity... emmm...

I agree with you. I was thinking about Llano until the Trinity news surfaces. The tech industry is so fast moving they have to strike a balance between sales and making shareholders happy and keeping future customers. Nonetheless, this annoucement does seem a little untimely and steal the limelight from Llano. That said, I think most people do not follow CPU roadmap like this site's readers. I don't think this will really cut into their short term profit, IMO.

Perhaps this is an indication that AMD is more ready to ship Bulldozer-NG and Trinity than expected? Hopefully no later than 2012 Q2 to go head-to-head with Ivy Bridge.

Both Trinity APU's and Komodo CPU's are going to use a new FXM socket......So AM3+ is going to live for about 1 year.....kind of shot their Zambezi launch in the foot as far as I'm concerned.

Hopefully the FXM socket will have long legs, and I'm going to wait for that.
