TechwareLabs: AMD Launches New Trinity APU
Today AMD launches the followup to the llano processor, the Trinity APU. Promising a trinity of bonuses, processing power, graphics power, and energy efficiency the APU could be the solution that the mobile market needs. We take a first look at the enhancements behind the new Trinity. Get a first look at what AMD is releasing in our technology preview review.Read moreNeoseeker: AMD Trinity Preview
AMD recently held a conference call to small preview of the new architecture used in its upcoming Trinity APU, designed as the successor to its current Llano platform. Neoseeker was invited to see what AMD had to share, and we're passing what we've learned to you in our first look at their second generation APU design. See what makes it tick under hood, and how (according to AMD) it compares to similar offerings from the competition.Read morePC Perspective: AMD A10-4600M Trinity For Mobile Review: Trying To Cut The Ivy
Llano was released around the same time as Bulldozer, but it did not use Bulldozer cores. Instead it used yet another update of Stars, which is a mobile incarnation of Phenom II, which was of course an improvement upon the original Phenom. The “new” Llano APU in fact was equipped with some rather old processor cores. This showed in the performance of the mobile Llano products. They simply could not keep up with Sandy Bridge’s more modern cores.Read moreHotHardware: AMD Trinity A10-4600M Processor Review
Bulldozer isn’t coming to mobile with Trinity, either. Instead we’re receiving Piledriver. AMD has effectively skipped the first iteration of its new Bulldozer architecture and moved straight on to the second. Piledriver includes the third generation of AMD’s Turbo Core and promises “up to 29%” better processor performance than last year’s Llano-based A-Series.
AMD's second-generation Bulldozer core processor microarchitecture, codenamed Piledriver, has made headlines at HotHardware many times in the past few months, including our CES sneak peek of the chip that AMD is launching today for the mobile market, codenamed Trinity.

What this launch is all about is AMD's answer to Intel's Ivy Bridge-based Core series processors for notebooks. It's that straightforward, though we'll start by level-setting expectations based on how both companies and their respective architectures approach computing workloads.
For AMD, Trinity has also been reported as offering much-needed performance enhancements in IPC (Instructions Per Cycle) but also more of the same strength in gaming and multimedia horsepower, with an enhanced second generation Radeon HD graphics engine. In the pages ahead, we'll dive into AMD's new Trinity architecture and AMD's new A10 series APU, along with lots of benchmark data looking at the results of AMD's recent efforts from a number of angles.
Ever since Llano was first introduced, people have been talking about Trinity. In this article, we take an in depth look at the latest generation of APUs which are part of AMD's ongoing Fusion initiative.Read moreGolem: Trinity A10-4600M im Test: Auch AMD-Notebooks laufen bis zu 7 Stunden lang (German)
Mit der neuen Notebook-Plattform "Trinity" will AMD Intel bei mobilen Rechnern Konkurrenz machen. Zwar liegt die CPU-Leistung der Piledriver-Kerne immer noch weiter hinter Sandy und Ivy Bridge, das Gesamtpaket überzeugt für Geräte der Mittelklasse trotzdem.Read moreComputerBase: Test: AMD A8-4500M (Trinity) (German)
AMD schickt mit Trinity die zweite Generation der APUs ins Rennen. Erst einmal wird diese auf das Notebook-Segment fokussiert - wir sehen uns den A8-4500M genauer an. Dabei greifen wir auf ein handelsübliches Modell zurück, das die typische Ausstattung hat, die Trinity-Notebooks in der Preisklasse zwischen 500 und 600 Euro bieten werden.Read moreAnandtech: The AMD Trinity Review (A10-4600M): A New Hope
AMD's microprocessor history goes way back, predating even the now venerable x86 architecture. Their first foray into x86 territory came as a subcontractor to Intel, and from there AMD cut the ties and began making x86 compatible chips of their own design, starting in 1991 with the Am386.Read moreBjorn3D: AMD presents 2012 A-Series APU (Trinity)
AMD today unveiled the next generation APUs for notebooks: Trinity. With more performance, Eyefinity-support and more improvements it looks like the perfect companion for those new Ultrathin laptops.Read moreTechradar: Review: AMD A10-4600M
IntroductionIf the future of computing is all about mobile devices, the future of computer chips is increasingly about squeezing in more features into ever less space. Enter the AMD A10-4600M, the latest all-in-one chip for portable PCs. Previously known under the Trinity codename, the AMD A10-4600M is exciting for several reasons. For starters, it's our first taste of AMD's new Piledriver CPU architecture. Piledriver is a development of AMD's radical Bulldozer CPU design.Read more
