    Phoronix: AMD A10-5800K "Trinity" APU On Linux

    While some information with Windows-based results for AMD's latest-generation "Trinity" desktop APUs have surfaced in the past few days, this morning the full embargo concerning the latest AMD Trinity hardware expires so full details and results can now be shared. In this article are the initial Linux test results of the AMD A10-5800K Trinity APU using Ubuntu at Phoronix.

    I have seen people hiding the fact that they have INTEL to avoid ridicule... I know very hungry people who did buy modern 64-bit ATOMS but only can use 32 bits OSes and 2Gb memory because of the unsolved INTEL driver issues.

    If I'm buying AMD Trinity..

    I will surely use windows. Not Linux.

    Your 'data' is false

    You copied those figures from a well-known unscientific review of AMD trinity found online. They are false. First, SYSMARK and CineBench are biased tests optimized for Intel chips and that avoid advances in AMD chips. Precisely AMD, Nvidia, and VIA abandoned BABPCo because of the Intel bias

    http://news.softpedia.com/news/AMD-N...d-207412.shtml

    Second, the above figures were obtained under a Windows system optimized for Intel chips. Third, the tests were run with 12.9 catalyst drivers and 1600MHz memory, which again artificially favoured Intel chips (recall that A10 has a stock memory bus of 1866MHz and runs much better with faster memory). By using improved 13.3 drivers today you can obtain about a 23% more FPS in common games with AMD Radeon...

    There are lots of biased test against AMD. Reality is other...

    I can get to work in a honda civic, or a dodge viper, both get me there, but what car is good enough for the simple task of driving to work? Money means ALOT more to folks now days, and 60fps without high end shadows or bloom lighting is GOOD ENOUGH...

    there are so many examples of this concept in our lives today...

    BUT i guess i kinda hijacked this thread ill stop posting here now.
    This is the case.

    The choice is between "honda civic" that works only on catalyst. And crashes.
    And "dodge viper" that works on opensource Intel drivers.

    I buy two dodges that work on opensource drivers as they should.

    If Intel does good discrete card that costs a lot of cash and works with opensource drivers, I buy two. I value my money.

    This isn't case expensive intel vs affordable amd.
    This is case - opensource intel works just as fast as catalyst amd, and opensource amd sucks ducks.

    What I would have rather seen or maybe ismply missed was 'Thank you AMD'.

    Now brosis, comn man, you know the point i was making, but you are the type where 1fps matters, if you can't understand my post, it just shows the extreme gap in the TYPE of computer user's out there.

    60fps IS 60fps, it does not matter where it's coming from. and of course a 2 grand system is better lol DUH! i never said it wasn't, but as i stated, 6o fps is the same everywhere on this planet, and prolly most other planets...

    We all know a I7 isnt getting maxed out with gaming, CPUs arent the bottle neck there, APUs are the future, and "good enough" is FINE for most people, and APUs will only get faster.

    Just look at what happened with TITAN, tech is getting smaller and faster, AMD has CPUs and GPUs, in time we will see an APU that is equal to TITAN and an I7, it IS coming, and it will be AMD that has it.
    AMD is so crap, that a 10 times weaker Intel can kill it performance and stability-wise only thanks to driver quality. Just look who is the driving force behind MESA and who produces the open drivers that you can be proud of.

    Besides, current APUs only deliver low-segment discrete performance, hardly discrete will ever vanish. Its just for average joe its cheaper to get APU than to get CPU+low-segment GPU, thats why all the APU buzz. They will not cease production of discrete cards, its just if Intel designs good hardware APU, its game over for AMD.

    Now I'm considering selling my AMD APU and buying Ivy Bridge, simply because it WORKS.
    Look here.

    Btw, renaming the "gala" executable to "gnome-shell" and running it, actually fixes most of the bugs. -.-
    Lololol!

    You have no idea! If your 2000$ Intel system works, and APU system suck dragon balls level 99, I take 2000$ Intel system anyday. End of story!
