Desktop Trinity APU details revealed

AMD releases information on the upcoming desktop Trinity APUs

| CPU, APU & Chipsets News | Posted: Jun 13, 2012 9:29 pm

AMD has announced some more details on its upcoming Trinity APUs destined for desktops. AMD has stated that these chips will start to appear in all-in-one PCs by the end of the month. Curiously, this is contrary to what several motherboard manufacturers told TechReport while at Computex. They had said that desktop parts were delayed.

It looks as though AMD may be respinning the silicon for the retail desktop chips, so it probably won't be identical to the chips OEMs will be receiving this month. That aside, we do know the models which will be becoming available this month. The chips are almost identical to the mobile chips, except that they will be clocked higher.

 

All of the CPUs feature a quad-core CPU based upon the new Piledriver architecture and 4MB of L2 cache. They will support up to DDR3 at 1866MHz and slip into the FM2 socket. The K series denotes chips that are unlocked for overclockers, so if you plan to overclock, make sure to pay attention and get the correct model.
