AMD A10-5800K Trinity APU Review

thumbs amdh e 2cp AMD A10 5800K Trinity APU Review

 

Over the last few years we’ve seen OEM computing make a shift from discrete video cards to on-chip GPUs.  Within the past 2 years both Intel and AMD have gone full force with on-chip GPUs, so what’s the difference?  Intel released Ivy Bridge with Intel HD Graphics 4000 and now AMD is firing back with Trinity.  AMDs 2nd Generation APU adds performance in both CPU and GPU over their first generation (Codename Llano).  However the main complaint about Llano was that it was too half-way for the desktop-building gaming enthusiast.  Llano is leaps and bounds above HD 4000 graphics but only  a 6550D Radeon it wasn’t enough to push enthusiasts to purchase it versus a discrete card.  Fast forward to Trinity: wielding the latest 7XXXD series Radeon, will it have enough stones to push into the enthusiast market?  Trinity also brings the latest FM2 chipset.  Before we go any further, lets discover what AMD plans to release with Trinity

  1. So far this is the most promising release from AMD in the past couple years. I hope they are able to refocus and maintain.
