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.
