Based again on 32nm SOI, AMD‘s second generation A-Series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) (formerly codenamed “Trinity”) for mainstream and ultrathin notebooks, All-in-One and traditional desktops, home theater PCs and embedded designs is now available in retail and distribution channels. The new x86 cores, codenamed “Piledriver,” are an evolution of the revolutionary “Bulldozer” cores with some major performance enhancements, hitting up to 4.2 GHz. But consumer-savvy reviewers also cite the impact of Trinity’s excellent performance-per-watt on battery life.
