AMD lists first desktop Trinity APUs, arriving in all-in-one PCs this month

By on June 14, 2012, 10:30 AM

Despite rumors that the second generation Trinity APU family for traditional and all-in-one desktops had been delayed until sometime this fall, AMD has gone ahead and quietly detailed the upcoming lineup. These chips will be based on the same quad-core design as AMD's mobile Trinity APUs, complete with Piledriver CPU cores and updated Radeon graphics, and initially include A8 and A10 series models.

There are two A8- and two A10 series processors listed, each with one “K” variant featuring an unlocked clock multiplier and 100 Watt TDP, and another with a locked multiplier and 65 Watt TDP. All of them will integrate 4 CPU cores, 4 MB L2 cache, a Radeon HD 7000 series GPU, and support for DDR3 memory speeds up to 1866MHz. Below are the specs for each model as detailed on AMD’s website:

Model Cores Base frequency Turbo frequency L2 cache Graphics Shader units GPU frequency TDP
A10-5800K 4 3.8GHz 4.2GHz 4MB Radeon HD 7660D 384 800MHz 100W
A10-5700 4 3.4GHz 4.0GHz 4MB Radeon HD 7660D 384 760MHz 65W
A8-5600K 4 3.6GHz 3.9GHz 4MB Radeon HD 7560D 256 760MHz 100W
A8-5500 4 3.2GHz 3.7GHz 4MB Radeon HD 7560D 256 760MHz 65W

AMD says these first desktop Trinity models will appear in all-in-one PCs starting this month. Although this conflicts with chatter The Tech Report has heard through multiple motherboard makers, the site speculates that big-name PC makers are getting first dibs on Trinity chips, while the retail-boxed versions won’t be available until this fall. AMD might still tweak some of the specs for the consumer versions.

Not sure how this is supposedly contradictory. Consumer mobo makers are concerned with their own products/time to market timeframe...OEM board manufacture is more the province of companies like Hon Hai (Foxconn), Pegatron and Tyan building to Dell/HP/Acer's/etc.. specification.

I thought it was pretty well established that OEM's get first refusal on virtually any new tech by dint of huge orders and marketing on the IHV's behalf, so it was always a safe bet that OEM's get to market before DIY'ers, and if AMD need anything it's OEM contracts if they hope to make any kind of inroads into Intel's present market domination.

Anyhow...this all seems confirmed from [link] -with a follow up in the works ( vs i3 2100 by the sounds of it) if the conclusion is anything to go by.
