AMD A-Series `Trinity APU` Specs Unveiled

After we presented a series of basic info about AMD’s upcoming A10- and A8-Series APUs last week, a new leak has now reached the Web to reveal not only the names of these chips, but also their specs, including CPU and GPU clock speeds.

Just as it has previously done with Llano,AMD decided to split the Trinity APUs into four product series, covering everything from the high-end to the low-end processor market.
The most advanced of these APUs will be launched in the A10-Series, which includes the A10-5800K and the A10-5700, according to Donanim Haber.

Both of these chips pack four processing cores, 4MB of Level 2 cache memory, support for AMD’s Turbo Core technology and DDR3-1866 memory, as well as an on-board Radeon HD 7660D GPU with 384 shaders.
In the case of the A10-5800K the operating speed of the CPU is set at 3.8GHz (4.2GHz max Turbo), while its smaller brother has a
a base clock of 3.4GHz and 4GHz maximum Turbo.

In the A8-Series,AMD will release the A8-5600K and A8-5500 APUs, both of these chips featuring pretty much the same specs as the A8-Series Trinity processors, but coming with the slower HD 7560D GPU which packs 256 Radeon cores.
The base clock speed of the A8-5500 is set at 3.2GHz (3.7GHz max Turbo), while the A8-6500K works at 3.6GHz with a 3.9GHz maximum Turbo speed.

Moving to the remaining two AMD APUs, the A6-5600K and A4-5300, we get to see that these include just two processing cores and a mere 1MB of Level 2 cache.
This is however where the similarities between these two APUs end, as the A6-Series chip features DDR3-1866 memory support and a Radeon HD 7540D integrated GPU with 192 streaming cores, while its smaller brother has to make do with a 128 core Radeon HD 7480D GPU and just 1600MHz DDR3 memory.

The rest of the APU specs are available in the table included in this article. According to some previuos leaks,the first AMD Trinity APUs are expected to arrive during the second quarter of this year.
