  1. AMD's upcoming 'Trinity' APU is expected to swing into production as early as January 2012 and arrive in actual products somewhere around late Q1 and early Q2. Although details are…

    What a surprise...
    Good to see that AMD's Department of Spin has been largely unaffected by the employee layoffs.

    A little hard to reconcile these supposed performance leaps when even staunch AMD cheerleaders are reporting that Apple have decided to boot AMD for Intel+Nvidia. I'd have to assume that Apple must be privy to the next generation of 32/28/22nm hardware to make that decision...both relative performance and availability

    I remember that DBZ.......you certainly called it. I guess fusion IS the future for AMD, if they are going to have one at all.

    A15 vs APU vs ivybridge for windows 8 in 2012
    Apu powerful gpu
    Ivybridge powerful cpu
    Arm's A15 energy efficient at way less power usage and way cheaper!

    All 3 will be dx11 compatible

    2012 can't wait

    Might be a little optimistic there champ
    Within reason.
    1. The CPU side needs to step it up if Trinity is going to make a move into "all-purpose" computing
    2. I don't think it's all plain sailing for Trinity. The recent articles stating that AMD's designs built for GloFo's 28nm have been trashed, and they are starting over with TSMC - different implementation means a ground up re-design.
    I'm not sure if firing Trinity's chief architect represents forward progress either:
    Assuredly....and of course having all the major OEM's on board now makes IB a success before it even enters the channel
    Cortex-A15 isn't likely to be a player until 2013.The A15 has only just taped out,
    Cortex-A15 has no graphics capability, and needs to be paired with a GPU such as Mali T-604
  6. Single-core CPU performance is all I care about.
