    Phoronix: First Look: AMD Trinity APU, Linux Already Runs Well

    There don't appear to be any actual numbers though and i couldn't find them on openbenchmarking.org either, so it's possible they have been removed. The article is also partly a plug for their other ventures.


    One of the AMD Linux engineering systems for Trinity is running nicely even on Ubuntu 11.04 with the Linux 2.6.38 kernel. The CPU string is AMD Eng Sample 2M252057C4450_32/25/16_9900_609 and its graphics are the Trinity Devastator Mobile with 512MB of video memory and an AMD Pumori motherboard. The PCI ID on the Trinity Devastator appears to be 0x9900. This Trinity APU is quad-core and running at 2.50GHz. The current quad-core Llano offerings are clocked at 2.6GHz (A6-3650) and 2.9GHz (A8-3850), while this Trinity part is clocked slower, it's numbers are nice compared to my A8-3850 Linux system.

    Seems we made our greatest error when we named it at the start
    for though we called it "Human Nature" - it was cancer of the heart
    CPU: AMD X3 720BE@ 3,4Ghz
    Cooler: Xigmatek S1283(Terrible mounting system for AM2/3)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte 790FXT-UD5P(F4) RAM: 2x 2GB OCZ DDR3 1600Mhz Gold 8-8-8-24
    GPU:HD5850 1GB
    PSU: Seasonic M12D 750W Case: Coolermaster HAF932(aka Dusty )

    Interesting if quad Trinity is doing "nice" vs quad Llano despite lower clocks, because according to recent leaks 4Ghz+ quad Bulldozer is well behind Deneb.

    The article author said he removed the juicy tidbits.

    My thoughts exactly.

    What does this mean? BD launching next week is bugged like hell or is it just AMD play to keep real numbers till launch?

    Let's wait and see how Bulldozer does first. By the look of things,not really good even against X6/X4,stock vs stock of course.

    Trinity uses improved piledriver cores, so it's good to hear they're doing nicely.

    The question is if turbo +700 Mhz worked and on what speed most of the time.
    AMD Eng Sample 2M252057C4450_32/25/16_9900_609
    default 2.5Ghz, turbo 3.2Ghz, NB 1.6Ghz, stepping B6
    AMD Eng Sample 2D332158A2350_36/33/16_9991_711
