AMD shows off Trinity APU

Written by Slobodan Simic

Running Deus Ex on a notebook
Just across the street from this years IDF, AMD decided to show quite a few upcoming products and the most recent one is Trinity.

Although there were no specs given, or performance figures for that matter, it is nice to see that AMD is ready to at least show it on a notebook and to see that it is able to run Deus Ex: Human Revolution. According to various rumors and quite a few leaked slides, the Trinity should feature up to four "improved Bulldozer" cores aka Piledriver, and will be made in 32nm manufacturing process.

Of course, as the Trinity is schedule to appear sometimes in early 2012, at least according to AMD, and we are sure that we'll see more and more of it.

More here.

holy crap Bulldozer+HD700 0 technology in one single APU @ 32nm !!! If they release this in January, Intel is going to have a pretty tough Q1.

Well, the way things have gone lately, it's likely that Intel will beat AMD in most software tests, but that AMD wil beat Intel in anything game or 3D related, and that AMD will offer a good deal on the price.

You're referring to Stars-based Llano. Of course it loses CPU bound tasks to Sandy Bridge, a much newer architecture.

However, expect BD to significantly close that gap. And Piledriver will be even better.

Well we can't make any assumptions about CPU performance even when Bulldozer is released as these trinity SoCs/APUs will have dumbed down Bulldozer cores to reduce power usage compared to the desktop parts (they are mobile after all). That said even though intel are bragging ivy bridge everywhere and that it's "GPU" is 60% faster, it's still not going to match the HD 7000 core of Trinity, trigate transistors are not.

they will be downclocked not dumbed down, just like intel's mobile part are.
and trinity will also be available on the desktop
and they will actually contain the more advanced piledriver core.

Nice to see AMD executing again. The working demo unit is a very good sign (no wood screws/sawed off PCB or anything).

A bit early to tell, but who knows, new CEO, new products, good OEM relationships, AMD could actually be making some progress for once.

Not that Intel is standing still...

I hope that intel & AMD continue to push performance of integrated graphic card solutions.
Good luck to both.Hope this development will lead to lower prices for discrete graphic cards

Knowing AMD "early 2012" just refers to 1H of the year. Probably should expect it to arrive June'ish.

It also looks like Bulldozer won't be released for desktop till Q4 2011 so a Q1 2012 Trinity release again would be incredibly unexpected.
