    Bulldozer-based APUs are rumored to launch early/mid 2012; the code name is "Trinity".

    edit: benchmarks I've seen so far say that single-threaded performance is crap. Phenom II is beating it.

    Are these APUs?
    I'm upset that Michael didn't receive any samples to test. I opened Phoronix today hoping to see how the new chip does under Linux , with all that Windows testing it would have been nice to see.
    So I think the "ranting" is perfectly normal.
    And to answer your question , no , these chips have no graphics inside whatsoever.

    maybe it will do better in Linux

    Given how sad the Bulldozer performed under Windows maybe it will do better in Linux.
    AMD has no excuse for not providing Phoronix with some samples to test , it's probably the only serious website to do any testing under Linux.
    Did you ever try getting in touch with someone at AMD to ask why you're not getting any AMD cpus for review at Phoronix ?

    AMD has finally lifted the lid on their new FX-Series "Bulldozer" desktop CPUs, but how well do they work under Linux?..
