More juicy AMD Trinity details emerge

Written by Fudzilla staff



Up to 3.8GHz, over 4GHz with Turbo Core


A set of leaked AMD slides sheds some new light on upcoming Trinity APUs, including some rather impressive clocks, both in the CPU and GPU department.

Trinity is based on AMD’s new Bulldozer architecture, or Piledriver core to be precise, and it seems the new silicon is pretty forthcoming when it comes to high clocks. Slides indicate that Trinity clocks will range from 2.2GHz to a rather high 3.8GHz. What’s more, with Turbo Core the fastest variants will hit 4GHz and 4.1GHz. Bear in mind that these are engineering samples, so clocks in final production versions could be a bit different.

Graphics clocks are equally impressive. Even the slowest 2.2GHz Trinity features a 600MHz GPU. For comparison, the Llano flagship A8-3800 features 600MHz graphics. Trinity takes things a step further and the fastest models have 711MHz and 709MHz graphics. The higher clocks are only part of the story. Trinity is said to utilize the VLIW4 graphics architecture, based on AMD’s HD 6000 series GPUs, so clock-per-clock performance should also be better.

There’s been much speculation about Trinity’s performance versus current Llano parts, as FX-series Bulldozer parts delivered underwhelming results compared to ancient Thuban CPUs. However, depending on who you ask, Trinity should be 20 to 30 percent faster than Llano in terms of CPU performance, while graphics performance see a 30 percent boost over current Llano GPUs. TDPs remain largely unchanged, most parts are rated at 65W and 100W, but some high-end versions will have a pretty high 125W TDP.

I am not sure about the i5 or i7 series but this will defiantly wipe the floor of i3 series for sure...

This is awesome news. These new CPU's could very well be enough to fully compete in the high end against Intel's Core i7's.

Looks like AMD's new CEO means business and should turn AMD into a competing Monster just as he did with his previous job as CEO.

btw, he wasn't CEO at lenovo. was COO. also, the vast majority of trinity work was before his time.

the question remains: will it drop into my fm1 socket?

Unfortunately not, Trinity works only in FM2. AMD will be releasing more FM1 APU's but those are just faster versions of the existing A-series.

Actually it is, just imagine if the performance equivalent to HD6750. ;-)

actually, my comment was directed at you saying it will wipe the floor with the i3 when compared to the i5,7. graphics aside.

Are you talking about CPU performance or GPU performance ?

Keep in mind that when Trinity comes out, there will be ivy bridge version of i3 (which is supposed to be faster than current i3). I don't think it will match Trinity in GPU performance but in CPU performance it might match it or even surpass it.

Don't be sure about something when you don't have any proof. Many people were sure that BUlldozer (or bullcrap) was going to be faster than sandy bridge. But did this happen ? no

I'm not sure if you are serious

Trinity might be based Piledriver core (which is basically slightly enhanced bulldozer). However it is going to use only two modules and lacks l3 cache (according to the latest reports). In other words it is a crippled piledriver processors with an integrated GPU

It might match FX-4100 or maybe slightly faster (depending how much L3 cache impact the performance). However, unless you believe in magic it is not going to match the current i5 or i7 (let alone the upcoming ivy bridge)
