Trinity Athlons listed, but not available yet

Written by Fudzilla staff



Quads for peanuts


There is more to Trinity than A-series APUs. AMD also has a few Athlon processors based on the new architecture and they should end up on the cheap side.

A British retailer is listing two of them, the Athlon II X4 740X and the Athlon II X4 740X for £46 and £53 respectively. Although we are talking about crippled Trinity chips, sans graphics and turbo, the prices look pretty good and the Athlons will probably end up just marginally more expensive than dual-core Trinity APUs.

The Athlon II X4 740X comes in clocked at 3.2GHz and features a 65W TDP. It packs four Piledriver cores and 4MB of L2 cache. The unlocked Athlon II X4 750K is also a quad, but it’s a 100W part clocked at 3.4GHz. Another Athlon is on the way, but we still don’t have the price. However, the Athlon II X4 730 is the slowest of the bunch, a 2.8GHz part with a 65W TDP, so it should end up even cheaper.

The new Athlons look like a pretty good choice for gamers on a very tight budget or basically anyone looking for a modestly priced all-rounder with discrete graphics.
