And just like the first time, it contains dual, tri and quad core CPUs. However this time they are made using the Bulldozer technology ( which was proven to be inferior unfortunately ). Still, instead of Zambezi cores, Fusion integrates the second generation of this technology, Piledriver.
But the most important change will be at a GPU level where AMD will use the VLIW4 architecture, also present on Cayman chips. And when AMD announced these processors, the company also announced performance increase of 50%, without providing additional details.
Now however we have more precise estimations provided by AMD, in benchmarks like 3DMark and PCMark. And to compare, Trinity is on average 33% faster than Llano, offering a 14% better performance on a CPU level, 32% GPU and 56% GPGPU.
These numbers are average, estimated, and not real tests. So the is a change for them to be wrong.
And if we were to consider the frequency surplus Trinity will have we realize that AMD stood still. And when we think that the new processors will also need a new socket, FM2, then we can say we are better off without them.
Trinity Processors are expected to be released on the market sometime in 2012.
