ULV Trinity beats Sandy Bridge in 3Dmark

Written by Peter Scott



Should end up faster than Ivy Bridge, too


AMD has released the first performance figures for its upcoming 17W Trinity APUs, which will find they way into ultrathin notebooks later this year.

Intel’s ultrabooks are powered by Sandy Bridge ULV chips and the first Ivy Bridge based designs should start appearing by mid-2012. Current ultrabook parts also feature a 17W TDP, so it seems AMD will be able to match Intel’s current generation in terms of power consumption. In addition, AMD will offer somewhat beefier 25W versions for slightly thicker designs.

According to AMD’s testing, the first A6-series Trinity with a 17W TDP scores 2355 3Dmarks, while Intel’s Core i5 ULV 2537M manages just 1158 marks. AMD estimates next generation Ivy Bridge parts will score about 30 percent more, which will still leave AMD with a comfortable lead, at least in the graphics department. The gap widens for upcoming 25W parts, as the first A10 LV APU scores 3600, or 139 percent more than Ivy’s projected score.

AMD also believes it can compete in terms of battery life. Battery life projections for the Pumori reference board show that AMD’s ultrathins should manage up to seven hours of DVD playback or almost four hours of Blu-ray reproduction, which is a pretty impressive score.
