AMD Trinity desktop version delayed until October
AMD launched, few weeks ago, its new generation of APUs, codenamed Trinity. This launch was made by the end of May initially for some concerned laptops and should be quickly followed by the availability of processors for office PCs. In mid-July there is still no informations and according to some sites like Digitimes, the launch was postponed to October.
Digitimes site explains that AMD has finally moved the launch of the desktop versions of Trinity processor in the month of August to October. Presumably it is not just an issue of design that AMD would suggest, but there are some production problems as well.
Moreover, the generation of Llano APU, must coexist with socket AM3 processors (Athlon / Phenom) at similar price levels. A situation that seems destined to endure all that AMD will launch in October on the new processors socket AM3+. This is still a turnaround that AMD originally planned not to propose on socket AM3 processors in mid-2012: the AM3 socket finally gets a reprieve until mid-2013.
re: AMD Trinity desktop version delayed until October
Admittedly, this is not the first time anyone says that the units have been postponed until the fourth quarter. There have been suggestions in this direction since June and before. Whatever the cause, the movement is very damaging, not only for consumers willing to see more Fusion products but also for manufacturers of motherboards. Sure, AMD can continue with AM3 and AM3+ sockets, but any changes made to the platform also require product reviews by motherboard manufacturers. AMD's products to be launched in the third quarter are the FX-8350, FX-6300 and FX-4320 CPUs. All have the design of AM3+ pins and have a TDP (thermal design power) of about 125W.
