Shows up in internal benchmark slides


AMD's upcoming Virgo APU platform has been detailed a while back, but the performance figures have only been rumoured in regard to the leaked specs. Now, we have the first leak of actual performance compared to the previous generation Llano APU and the performance figures look promising.

As you already know, AMD's Trinity APUs will be based on the FM2 package and will feature AMD's Piledriver CPU architecture combined with VLIW4 architecture GPU. According to the info from Donanimhaber.com and those internal benchmark slides, you can expect a significant improvement over the previous Llano APU parts. The most noticable improvement is in GPGPU performance, mostly due to the superior GPU inside the Trinity APU.

AMD's Trinity A8-series part scores around 1000 points more in 3DMark Vantage performance benchmark when compared to its Llano counterpart. The Trinity A6-series scores a pretty much same scores while the least noticable improvement is with the Trinity A4-series. In "general performance" benchmarks the situation is pretty much the same, while in "compute benchmark", the Trinity A8-series is significantly faster.

According to the same slides, AMD claims a significant improvement in the "dual graphics" department as the new A8-, A6- and A4-series Trinity parts should benefit greatly when paired up with Turks Pro GPU, aka Radeon HD 6570. Of course, bear in mind that these are AMD's own internal benchmarks and we would rather wait for some real world testing to say if the Trinity is actually as good as AMD says it is.

You can find the rest of the slides in a video over at Donanimhaber.com.
