AMD increases performance of Trinity cores

Written by Nick Farell



Doing better than expected


AMD claims that the coming Trinity APU cores are proving to be better than it expected and it has increased performance projections and set up launch timeframe for the chip.

While AMD Trinity will be faster than initially believed, it will be a bit later, probably in the middle of the year. According to performance benchmarks conducted by AMD, the Trinity 35W APU with Piledriver-class x86 cores will provide 25 per cent better x86 performance compared to Llano 35W, with K10.5+ "Husky" x86 cores based on results obtained in PC Mark Vantage Productivity benchmark. AMD stated that Trinity 35W will offer up to 50 per cent better result in 3D Mark Vantage performance benchmark compared to Llano 35W.

Last year AMD was saying that there would be a 20 percent  increase in x86 performance and 30 per cent boost in graphics performance for Trinity compared to currently available A-series "Llano" APUs. AMD originally said it would release Trinity in the first half of the year, but now it seems that will be June.

X-bit labs has seen documents which shows that AMD will start mass production in arly and middle March, 2012, AMD wants to mass produce its desktop A-series "Trinity" APU with 65W thermal design power. In early May, 2012, the chip designer wants to initiate mass production of desktop A-series "Trinity" APUs with 100W TDP and higher performance.
