Hexus came across rumors that point to an October 1st release for AMD's desktop Trinity APUs:
AMD Trinity Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) for desktop socket FM2 are expected to be made available to retail on 1st October according to a rumour/report published on Japanese website Hermitage Akihabara. The website has pictures of the APUs and a feature and information chart of the APU key specifications. All these 32nm A-series APUs feature the “Piledriver” CPU architecture and integrated Radeon HD7000 series graphics.
Enthusiasts have been waiting for quite a long time to get their hands on desktop Trinity APUs. The mobile Trinity chips were launched in May, meanwhile desktop Trinity APUs announced in June have only trickled onto the market built into machines made by OEMs like HP and ASUS. Architectural improvements within the new Trinity APU are supposed to produce a 25 to 50 per cent performance boost over their Llano predecessors.
