AMD working on Trinity-based Athlon II and Sempron CPUs

Posted on Thursday, August 16 2012 @ 19:01:57 CEST by


X-bit Labs reports AMD is preparing Trinity-based Athlon II and Sempron processors for low-budget systems. Except integrated graphics, these chips will support all the capabilities of the rest of the Trinity processor family.
AMD Athlon II X2 and X4 family 15h microprocessors will have one or two Piledriver modules (two or four x86 cores), 2MB of L2 cache per module (4MB per chip), dual-channel DDR3 memory controller with official support for up to 1866MHz clock-speeds for memory and will also support Turbo Core 3.0 dynamic acceleration technology. The central processing units will not be too different from the A-series accelerated processing units when it comes to x86 performance, but since it will not have integrated AMD Radeon graphics core, it will not be able to take advantage of GPU compute technologies that are gaining importance.

AMD Sempron family 15h central processing units will also will have one or two Piledriver modules (two or four x86 cores), 1MB of L2 cache per module (2MB per chip), dual-channel DDR3 memory controller with official support for up to 1600MHz clock-speeds for memory. Given the lack of integrated GPU, Sempron will also not be able to take advantage of heterogeneous computing.
