    Phoronix: First Look: AMD Trinity APU, Linux Already Runs Well

    Remember those AMD Bulldozer benchmarks we showed back in March from an early engineering sample that was published to OpenBenchmarking.org by one of AMD's partners months prior to the product launch? Well, since the consumer-grade Bulldozer chips are going to be out soon, AMD's partners are already supplying information on the AMD Trinity APUs that won't be launched until next year. The Linux performance appears quite competitive and there's also some new codenames and details to share.

    Is it really that bad?

    That is I've seen bulldozer benchmarks that put it in the range of an i5. This on benchmarks not playing to AMDs strengths.

    I suppose that I should do some surfing of the net to get a better picture but I'm not convinced that flop is the right word here.

    But I can't decide whether to get Llano (A-3850 now), or wait for Trinity ?, either way, they both obviously look to be a very good "compact/integrated" PC solution -lol.
    Since, sadly enough, it looks like the "Bulldozer" Desktop CPU is a confirmed flop now -according to absolutely "ALL" the new reviews elswehere that have recently been trickliing in.

    Can you reveal what the CPUID Revision is for these trinity engineering samples? i.e. Zambezi is 00600F12h, and Llano is 00300F10h?

    Bulldozer out Llano/Trinity in

    Difficult to trace but still not true anonymity. You could also spoof the IP address and upload false reports as well I suppose (not saying that is the case, just that one could and shows that even an IP address is not definitive proof of anything).

    anonymous???

    Isn't openbenchmarking submission supposed to be anonymous????

    This weekend while browsing OpenBenchmarking.org when deciding what features to work on next for this collaborative testing platform that's integrated into the Phoronix Test Suite, I stumbled upon more data from some engineering samples that were submitted in recent weeks. It happened to be just like the discovery of the dual-Interlagos results earlier this year -- when an AMD government partner was running the Phoronix Test Suite and knowingly decided to share their Linux benchmark results with the world using OpenBenchmarking.org. With Bulldozer now coming to market, AMD's partners are now already looking towards Trinity. From what I have found so far, the Trinity data at hand comes from two AMD partners this time and also one system that's even traced back to Sunnyvale, California.

    an ip address means it's not anonymous at all!

    I would say Vesa driver basic support, Radeon driver advanced support, AMD's proprietary driver almost mature support
    I'm currently happy user of a ATI card with Radeon drivers
