  1. AMD took the wraps off their long-awaited second generation Trinity APU last month. When it was announced, we were told the APU would power mainstream and ultrathin notebooks as well...

    Read the whole story
  2. AMD just fades away....
  3. yep... with such a horrible last year, they should have done sooooo much more in making sure they brought a product to market on time, but I guess they haven't learned any lessons yet. I see bankruptcy coming up next.
  4. ^ it's like you want AMD to die or something, so fatalistic predictions.

    maybe they DID learn from the past and rather delay a good product than early ship a bad one. I'm sure no one is as let down as they are, but must be for the best in the end.

    it is of everyone's interest that 99% of the market ISN'T Intel.

    I suppose the reason is rather different one. As AMD has let go off the competition and in the heat of Ivy Bridge they may not sell plentiful units. That's why they have delayed the launch.
  6. You people will R-E-A-L-L-Y miss AMD if someday they disapear. Mark my words.

    I agree, I don't personally own any recent AMD product, but I wouldn't like Intel to be left alone with the market. Maybe if AMD situation ever turns that bad to be close to bankcrupcy, the US government would intervein for certain, just as they did with GM.
  8. I just want to know what it'll hybrid crossfire with - as in, would it be worthwhile to wait for an FM2, or spend the money for FM1 with an A8-3870k, since the A10 supposedly won't fit into an FM1 board (which is REALLY stupid on AMD's part).
  9. Trinity should present an interesting alternative for ultrabook-style laptops where a balance of features, low power consumption, and integrated graphics are the norm..

    I guess trinity will be the-ultrabook-killer..
