Trinity in the Flesh...or Silicon

Below you will see the new upcoming Trinity APUs. Desktop, Notebook, and Low Power. We should be seeing these launched in early Q2'12, and as noted earlier in our Rory Read post, Trinity will launch with many design wins under its belt. While AMD has not informed HardOCP about a new desktop socket, all our sources in the industry tell us to expect an "FM2" socket format.

AMD says: Piledriver x86 cores will be up to 25 percent faster than Llano. - New Radeon graphics cores enable up to 50 percent graphics and compute uplift - "All day" battery life with over 12+ hours - Design wins tracking ahead of 2011 Llano platform (Graph showed approximately 98 design wins and 18mm thick 17 watt notebook was shown on stage.)
