AMD Trinity Desktop APU Specs Revealed
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.
All models will feature Turbo Core, and the base clock speed of the slowest quad-core Trinity APU will be faster than the fastest Llano APU. It's not yet known how this will translate to performance.
The table shows that three of the six known SKUs will be Black Edition products, with an unlocked multiplier for easier overclocking. Also, all but the A4-5300 will support dual graphics, with a compatible discrete graphics card.
The top end APU during Q2 will be the A10-5800K, with a base clock speed of 3.8 GHz and a Turbo Speed of 4.2 GHz. It will also have an unlocked multiplier. There will be a Radeon HD 7660D integrated GPU, with 384 Stream Processors running at 800MHz. The next product in the line-up, A10-5700, has clock speeds of 3.4/4.0 GHz. The integrated graphics are the same as in the 5800K, except that the GPU will be running at 760 MHz.
Also expected in Q2 are the A8 series APUs. These will have Radeon HD 7560D graphics, with 256 Stream Processor at 760 MHz. A8-5600K will have a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz and a turbo speed of 3.9 GHz, and will be unlocked. A8-5500 will have base clock of 3.2 GHz and turbo speed of 3.7 GHz. The TDPs are 100W and 65W respectively.
Two dual-core SKUs are expected in Q3. A6-5400K will have HD 7540D graphics, with 192 stream processors. A4-5300 will have HD 7480D graphics, with 128 SP. the GPU and CPU clock speeds for these SKUs are not yet known, but the A6-5400K will have an unlocked multiplier. Both models will have TDP of 65W.
Models from the A6, A8 and A10 series will support memory natively at up to 1866 MHz, and support dual graphics. A4-5300 will only support memory up to 1600 MHz, and will not support dual graphics.
Although the base clock speeds are about 40-50% higher than Llano for similarly positioned products, it is not yet known how much of an improvement Piledriver is over Bulldozer, and it is unlikely that the CPU performance increase will match the clock speed increase.
