AMD's recently-released Trinity accelerated processing unit (APU) has won COMPUTEX's 2012 "Best Choice Award" in IC & Components. Sadly I could not find what other products were competing for this title, but this award can only be good for AMD. This is the second consecutive win for AMD's APUs. To win the award, the product would have to be deemed the best, after critical testing by "a panel of esteemed government officials, academics, research analysts, editors-in-chief of key media outlets and industry experts."

Chris Cloran, who is the corporate VP at AMD Client Products, said, "We are honored to receive this prestigious award from the Taipei Computer Association for the second consecutive year. The overwhelming market reception and industry accolades for the AMD A-Series APUs demonstrate that AMD is uniquely meeting the needs of our customers and a new generation of PC buyers."

The specific reasons for AMD's win, taken from here, follow:

  • "Trinity", the 2012 AMD APUs for supercomputing ultra thin notebook provide 3 next-generation user experiences into one solution:Personal supercomputing, Ultra thin & light, and All-day computing.
  • AMD APUs are redefining the computing landscape, enabling an outstanding high-definition computing user experience with app acceleration across all form factors, and long battery life on notebooks.
