New AMD Llano Processors to come in January 2012
The various new “Llano” models have been in rumors recently, though those rumored models has an unlocked multiplier but does not have any integrated graphics enabled. But his time we have details of, AMD A8-3870K and A6-3570K APUs witth integrated graphics and unlocked multipliers. These processors will come along with other models such as A8-3820, A6-3620 and A4-3420 not before Q4 2011, that is until January 2012.
AMD Trinity APU Production Schedule
Since desktop version of Llano processors will last for sometime, first we will be able to see some notebook Trinity APUs before the desktop versions. First Trinity APUs for Notebook will be fed for mass production during Januaryfollowed by 65W desktop versions in March. But most powerful 100W versions of AMD Trinity APUs will be manufactured only in May.
AMD Trinity APU Models
Compatibility of AMD Trinity APUs with FM1 is not officially confirmed but Trinity will be accompanied by the new FM2 Socket. AMD A10-5800 and A8-5600 are the power packed 100W Trinity APUs, which have 4 cores manufactured on 32nm process, with integrated 7000 series graphics for better gaming and multimedia performance. A10-5700, A8-5500, A6-5400 and A4-5300 are 65W versions of AMD Trinity APUs.
AMD Trinity Performance Prediction
So without any delay we can expect AMD Trinity at very earlier stages of 2012. From a leaked slide, which looks like a confidential slide leaked from AMD, we can infer that Trinity will offer 20% more processing performance when compared to Llano. It also says that the integrated GPU performance will be 30% more when compared to Llano. So as in Llano, we can add a discrete 7000 series graphic card to add the graphics performance with the integrated graphics in AMD Trinity APU. But still these are just rumors, we do not have any official information yet.
