    AMD A-Series “Trinity” Accelerated Processing Units Can Drop Clock-Speed Under High-Loads

    First the CF (CrossFire) is completely broken news.

    And now this.

    AMD is cheating right & left trying to win benchmarks but is getting caught doing it.

    See XbitLabs for story

    Sentiment: Sell

    • For example, Intel’s products remain unrivalled when it comes to conventional x86 performance. The senior quad-core Socket FM2 APUs from the A10 and A8 series are in between the Core i3 and Pentium in terms of average performance whereas the junior dual-core A6 and A4 are inferior to the Celeron series. AMD tries to make up for this discrepancy by means of pricing, yet not always successfully. The biggest problem of the Trinity family with x86 Piledriver modules is the low performance of the individual execution cores which shows up in many everyday applications.

      AMDAPU are a POS for gaming, you're much better off with a Intel + discrete GPU for near the same price.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Rory lies to shareholders, Rory's marketing engineers lie to everyone else. The old one-two.

    • AMD Launches “Elite APU” with Richland, Successor to Trinity

      3/12/2013 by

      Richland" APUs are based on an updated Trinity architecture, and are built using the same 32-nanometer process and Piledriver CPU architecture. However, they differ from Trinity parts by having higher clock speeds, featuring updated Radeon HD 8000 series GPUs, and faster DDR3-2133MHz dual-channel memory controllers.

      Another basher bites the dust. Why did you leave out information like this bashers?

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
