Zol.com.cn scored a roadmap that reveals more details on AMD's 2012 desktop lineup and although some of the details have already shown up earlier, the new roadmap slides shows some new details regarding enthusiast Komodo CPU, mainstream Trinity APU and the low end Wichita APU.

The newest suprise comes from enthusiast desktop Corona platform with Komodo CPU and Hudson D4 chipset. According to the details in the slide, Komodo CPU will feature up to ten Piledriver cores (most likely updated Bulldozer design), will feature Turbo Core 3.0 tech, support for DDR3 memory and will be based on FM2 infrastructure. As far as the Hudson D4 FCH is concerned, this one comes with support for four USB 3.0 ports and eight SATA 6.0Gbps ports. The Corona platform will be rounded up with next gen. AMD discrete graphics.

The next in line is Virgo mainstream desktop platform based on the Trinity APU. The Trinity APU features up to four Piledriver CPU cores paired up with DirectX 11 GPU core. It is also based on FM2 infrastructure and has DDR3 support and support for AMD's Turbo Core 3.0. This one is paired up with AMD's A75 and A55 FCH with four USB 3.0 ports and six SATA 6Gbps ports and will also be rounded up with AMD's next gen. discrete graphics, probably with support for some sort of Dual Graphics that we've seen on Llano.

The last but not least, the Deccan platform based on the Wichita APU with up to four Bobcat CPU cores and DirectX 11 GPU core. It is based on FT2 BGA infrastructure and has support for DDR3 memory. It will be paired up with integrated Yuba FCH.

The entire lineup is scheduled for 2012. As a part of mainstream desktop lineup, Trinity will replace the current desktop Llano lineup and will manufactured on 32nm process, while Wichita will be based on TSMC's 28nm process.
