AMD Readies Half a Dozen New Trinity APUs

Paul Lilly

A Chinese website posted details about six upcoming AMD Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) built around the chip maker's Trinity architecture. These include a pair of dual-core processors and four quad-core parts with improved graphics. Half of the new lineup will ship with a Black Edition label, a designation reserved for processors with unlocked multipliers.

According to , the following are on tap from AMD:

  • A10-3800K
  • A10-5700
  • A8-5600K
  • A8-5500
  • A6-5400K
  • A4-5300

On the high end of the totem pole is the A10-3800K, a quad-core processor clocked at 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) with 4MB of L2 cache, Radeon HD 7660D graphics (800MHz), and a 100W TDP. The next three processors -- A10-5700, A8-5600K, and A8-5500 -- are all quad-core parts as well with clockspeeds ranging from 3.2GHz to 3.6GHz.

Details are comparatively scarce for the A6-5400K and A4-5300, a pair of dual-core APUs rated at 65W TDP. Processor clockspeeds are unknown for these two chips.
