With the Trinity APU launch coming soon, leaks are starting to come in thick and fast.
Yesterday, AMD’s website accidently posted a PDF which has since been removed, but not before it was spotted by CPUWorld. The PDF had some specs such as model numbers and graphics performance of the upcoming APUs.
The PDF showed the upcoming APUs’ graphics performance relative to Intel’s Sandy Bridge CPUs. The Trinity APUs are embedded options and Intel hasn’t launched any Ivy Bridge embedded options so this was a better comparison.
The PDF suggests that the AMD R-464L is 206 percent better than Intel’s, and the R-272F has 145 percent better performance than Intel i7-2710QE embedded chip in 3DMark 06 and Vantage v1.1.0 software.
To be fair, though, that Intel chip is using the HD 3000 graphics which is noticeably slower than the HD 4000 graphics of Ivy Bridge.
Based on what we know already, the R-464L will be a quad-core APU with HD 7660G graphics.
The R-272F is likely a dual-core part featuring HD 7400G or 7500G graphics. Trinity is expected to be launched next week with the first laptops showing up in June.
