All is well, says AMD


AMD's desktop Trinity APUs are already detailed at AMD's website and although there have been some rumours of these parts possible being delayed, AMD says that parts are incoming and all seems well in Trinity land. In case you missed them, the initial batch will feature a total of four parts with either 100W or 65W TDP.

The lineup starts with a flagship A10-5800K quad-core APU that works at 3.8GHz base and 4.2GHz Turbo clock and features Radeon DH 7660D graphics part cwith 384 stream processors and 800MHz GPU clock. The A10-5700 is a similar part, but without the K "unlocked" moniker, and works at 3.4GHz base and 4.0GHz Turbo clock. It features the same Radeon HD 7660D graphics part but with a slightly slower 760MHz GPU clock.

The next two in line are part of the A8-series including A8-5600K and A8-5500. The A8-5600K works at 3.6GHz with 3.9GHz Turbo while the A8-5500 works at 3.2GHz base and 3.7GHz Turbo clock. Both of the A8-series APUs feature Radeon HD 7560D graphics part with 256 stream processors and 760MHz GPU clock.

The unlocked A10-5800K and A8-5600K will have a 100W TDP while the non-unlocked ones will have a 65W TDP. The entire lineup feature a quad-core CPU part based on Piledriver architecture, feature 4MB of L2 cache, fit into FM2 socket and have support for DDR3-1866 memory.

As noted, there has been a couple of rumours stating that these parts might be delayed, but according to our info and statement provided by AMD for Hadwarecanucks.com, all is well in Trinity world. We have been told that parts are shipping and that OEMs should announce their systems with AMD desktop Trinity parts pretty soon.

The actual retail/e-tail parts were always scheduled to appear later this year (second half of 2012 according to AMD) and AMD was foucsed on OEM systems as part of their initial rollout of Trinity APUs.

Of course, we will surely keep an eye out for these parts.
