AMD cuts prices of desktop CPUs
May 01, 2013: Earlier this week AMD announced new processors, expanding the line of high-end FX CPUs with quad-core FX-4350 and six-core FX-6350. It's not uncommon for AMD to lower prices when launching new products, and this time it was not an exception. Based on the latest official AMD price list, the company cut prices of ten A-Series and FX-Series chips by as much as 19%.

AMD business-class "Trinity" APUs are shipped in Lenovo desktop
Oct 08, 2012: Last week AMD launched second-generation "Trinity" APUs, from entry-level A4-5300 with 2 CPU cores, and up to A10-5800K with twice as many cores, 4 times larger cache, unlocked clock multiplier and 3 times as many GPU shaders. In addition to these consumer-oriented products, several business-class "Trinity" processors started shipping in Lenovo ThinkCentre M78 small desktop PC. Business-class APUs will be also available in HP Compaq Pro 6305 PC.

Bits and pieces: AMD FX-4130 is in stores, Athlon X4 700-series listed
Oct 03, 2012: Yesterday AMD released "Trinity" APUs, several with locked clock multiplier, and three "K" SKUs with unlocked multiplier. Locked and unlocked parts use new box design, with white- or black-colored background. As usually, all product specifics on boxed AMD processors, including model and serial numbers, are listed on a sticker on the top of the box. It seems that stickers on processors, shipped in Japan, may show wrong information.

AMD introduces retail "Trinity" APUs for desktops
Oct 02, 2012: Today AMD officially introduced "Virgo" platform, consisting of six different "Trinity" Accelerated Processing Units, and three motherboard chipsets: AMD A55, A75 and A85X. The APUs integrate 2 or 4 CPU cores with discrete-class Radeon HD 7000-series graphics, which allows them to provide good CPU and GPU performance at a relatively low price point. As such, these processors are best suited for entry-level to mid-class media and game systems.

AMD A-Series to launch on October 2, FX-Series on October 23
Sep 25, 2012: While Intel is almost done releasing new desktop processors for the rest of the year, AMD has only started. Next month we will see new lineups, based on the latest AMD Piledriver microarchitecture, which is a tweaked for better performance and power consumption Bulldozer architecture. A-Series "Trinity" Accelerated Processing Units will target budget / mainstream segments of the desktop market, and, according to SemiAccurate, they will be introduced on October 2.

Pre-order prices of AMD "Trinity" CPUs
Sep 03, 2012: The first generation of AMD Accelerated Processing Units was based on "Llano" core, that merged Star/K10-based CPU cores with Radeon HD 6000 graphics. The A series processors had average CPU performance, however, thanks to integrated powerful GPU, they were well suited for graphics and video applications. In the forth quarter 2012 "Llano" parts will be replaced with faster second-generation "Trinity" APUs, featuring 1 or 2 Piledriver modules (2 or 4 CPU cores), and Radeon HD 7000-series graphics unit.

Some details of AMD Piledriver CPUs
Aug 28, 2012: This fall AMD will release large number of new desktop processors, built on the latest Piledriver microarchitecture. With the exception of a couple of chips, details of upcoming lineup were known well ahead of the launch. Yesterday Expreview published a slide, titled "2012 Consumer Platform Quick Reference Guide for Desktops", that confirmed clock frequencies of upcoming "Piledriver" products, and shed some light on supported technologies.

AMD A6-5400K APU is shipped in HP All-in-one computers
Aug 17, 2012: As you may know, current lineup of "Llano" Accelerated Processing Units from AMD is being slowly transitioned to new "Trinity" core design. Even though the company launched mobile "Trinity" parts back in May, desktop retail products will only be available in October. It's peculiar that some "Trinity" desktop APUs are already shipping in OEM computers. We previously reported on A8-5500 and A10-5700 chips sold in HP Pavilion p7-1235 and p7-1240 PCs. We just discovered that A6-5400K APU is available in HP Pavilion All-in-one (AIO) desktops.

AMD "Trinity" APUs pictured; rumored to launch on October 1
Aug 13, 2012: In May AMD launched second-generation Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) with "Trinity" core. The launch included only mobile chips, whereas desktop "Trinity" APUs were announced in June, and so far appeared in only in desktop computers from such OEM manufacturers as ASUS and HP. Retail "Trinity" products were delayed, and they are expected in late October. Pictures of these accelerated units were published today by Japanese website Hermitage Akihabara.

Details of AMD A6-5400K and FX-8350 processors
Jul 04, 2012: In February Donanimhaber leaked AMD roadmap, that so far has been very accurate. The roadmap's second quarter included new A8-Series and A10-Series "Trinity" processors, as well as E1-1200 and E2-1800 APUs from Brazos 2.0 platform, all of which were either announced or launched in June. Based on the roadmap, planned new SKUs for the third quarter are A4-5300 and A6-5400K Accelerated Processing Units, as well as FX-8350, FX-8320, FX-6300 and FX-4320 high-performance chips. The roadmap slide doesn't have detailed specifications of unreleased chips, but many details of the A6-5400K and FX-8350 SKUs were recently disclosed by Fudzilla.

AMD Trinity Desktop APU Specs Revealed
Feb 15, 2012: Our last report on the upcoming Trinity APU gave details of part numbers for the Trinity range, including Brazos 2.0 and Vishera. Donanimhaber have now leaked further details, with a slide showing specs for the Trinity A-Series APUs. Trinity will use a new socket, FM2, which is similar to FM1 with a few pins repositioned, and it will have a Piledriver CPU core, which is the updated Bulldozer core.

Front view. Boxed socket FM2 APUs were re-designed, and they are now a bit smaller than socket FM1 boxed processors. Both FM1 and FM2 boxes include same type of cheap fan/heatsink, installation instructions and a plastic shell with the CPU. The FM1 processors also had an additional cartoon box for the fan/heatsink. That carton box was eliminated on socket FM2 chips, which allowed AMD to reduce the width of packaging, and keep the same height and depth.
