Upcoming: AMD's New Trinity APUs On Linux
Written by Michael Larabel in AMD on 27 September 2012 at 02:29 AM EDT. 20 Comments
This morning you may be seeing a number of performance previews on AMD's Trinity APUs for the desktop, while the full embargo covering these latest Fusion products has yet to expire. Phoronix tests of Trinity under Linux are forthcoming.

Part of the Trinity embargo expired this morning for delivering gaming benchmarks on the new hardware plus select other information. As such, there's lots of Windows review sites running with information this morning on the AMD A10-5800K and A8-5600K.

Fortunately, there are Phoronix samples this time around of the new APUs, but there won't be any previews this morning. Due to bad timing of getting the AMD Trinity sample shipment last week when at XDC2012 in N├╝rnberg and then the past few days being at Oktoberfest, the Linux testing hasn't yet commenced.

I'll be back in America later today and the Linux testing of the new AMD Trinity hardware will then get underway. Stay tuned for more Linux test results soon.
