Good news for you AMD-lovers out there, Trinity has been released. For those of you who don't know, Trinity it's AMD's next generation of APUs featuring "Piledriver" (the next generation after Bulldozer) 32nm architecture. The Trinity APUs also come with Radeon HD 7000 series integrated graphics, which are supposed to increase performance by over 50% compared to the last generation, which is quite a bit considering how powerful the last generation's integrated graphics were. CPU performance is up, according to AMD, by 29% over the last generation of APUs. While 29% isn't a bad upgrade, the last generation wasn't very powerful, so 29% of not very powerful is still not very powerful. We'll see exactly how Trinity fairs in benchmarks once the chips get a chance to be reviewed. Sadly, the only Trinity chips released today were for mobile applications, like ultrathins and notebooks. Desktop parts will be released in the ambiguous "later this year."
