VR Zone reports AMD revealed some 3DMark Vantage performance scores of its upcoming Trinity ULV APUs.
In Appendix A to Lisa Su's presentation at Financial Analyst Day, AMD revealed typical 3D Mark Vantage scores for selected 17W and 25W SKUs, performed on Compal reference designs. A A6 ULV 17W Trinity scores 2355 3D Marks. This is twice as fast as Sandy Bridge Core i5 2537M, an ultrabook regular, which scores 1158 3D Marks. Of course, Trinity will be competing with Ivy Bridge ultrabooks, but AMD expects the given A6 ULV to still be over 50% faster than competing Ivy Bridge ultrabooks.
The pinnacle of performance/power lies with the A10 Low Voltage APU, however. The 25W LV APU scores a blistering 3600 3D Marks, which sets a new record for integrated graphics in a laptop and puts most entry-level mobile discrete GPUs to shame. Trinity will also be present in performance laptops in 35W and 45W variants, which will further advance integrated graphics in notebooks.
