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,
show wrong information.
Specifications of Athlon X4 "Trinity" CPUs confirmed
Sep 12, 2012
: Presumably in October, AMD will introduce second generation desktop
APUs with "Trinity" core. While one of the main features of this core
is a greatly improved on-chip GPU, some "Trinity" processors will
have the graphics unit disabled. These chips will be branded as Athlon
II X4 or Athlon X4. Obviously, systems with these microprocessors will
require discrete graphics cards to operate.

: We previously reported that, in addition to dual- and quad-core
Accelerating Processing Units (APUs) for socket FM2, AMD plans to
introduce several quad-core Athlon II microprocessors. Like A-Series
chips, Athlon IIs will be based on "Trinity" core, support
the same CPU features, while lacking on-chip graphics unit. It seems
that AMD may also release dual-core Athlon II and Sempron
AMD prepares Athlon II X4 CPUs for socket FM2
Jul 26, 2012
: AMD Athlon brand has been on the market since 1999, when AMD
launched seventh generation x86 chips, initially for Slot A and then for socket A. Over its life, there
were many variations of Athlon processors. At first, processors from Athlon,
Athlon XP, Athlon 64 and 64 X2 families were offered as high-performance chips. When AMD announced Phenom brand,
"Athlon" name was repurposed for budget Athlon X2, and later for Athlon II X2/X3/X4 families.
The brand didn't die with introduction of A-Series "Llano"
Accelerated units in 2011.
