Is this going to be another flop, like bulldozer, or will it be a decent CPU that can compete well against Intel? After Bulldozer, I wouldn't get my hopes up too much.

Trinity is just an update of their Fusion line of "APU"s using Bulldozer cores instead of Phenom cores.

Trinity is based on Piledriver.

But, I seriosuly doubt it will be a big enough improvement to be competitive.

This is great news for me. Im looking to replace my 2 year old Turion X2 powered laptop with Trinity. Just hope HDD prices dont ruin my plans. 

I hope for another HP DV7 17" with two HDD bays again. Throw a 128GB SSD and a WD Scorpio Black in it and call it a day. I think thatll be enough power for the next 2 episodes of StarCraft 2. Thats the only PC game that seems interesting for the next 3 years.

Cue news that there is a major error in the first run of the chip, and the whole thing will have to be scrapped for a new revision.

Certainly AMD can't catch a break. That would be a sign of the end times.

It's AMD...who cares ?

From a performance standpoint, Intel/Nvidia is the way to go !

Youre completely neglecting the fact that AMD fusion is a budget build and offers the best bang for the buck. It's specially great for laptops under 1000$ which used to have horrible intel accelerated GPU that was useless outside of displaying your desktop.

My friend has fusion A6 laptop he bought for 600$ and it plays all modern games fairly well.
