AMD unveils the Trinity 2nd gen notebook APUs

AMD today unveiled its new processors for notebooks. They promise more graphics power, leaving far behind the Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge. All models feature a HD7000 graphics series and will have the AMD HD Media Accelerator designed to improve HD video playback.

The following table shows you the new AMD processors characteristics:

“The latest OEM notebooks, ultrathins, All-in-Ones and desktops based on the new AMD A-Series APU enable the best video and gaming experiences, highly responsive performance with AMD Turbo CORE, and accelerate an ever-increasing range of productivity and multimedia applications — in sleek, stylish designs at price points that make sense,” said Chris Cloran, corporate vice president and General Manager, AMD Client Business Unit. “Our 2nd-Generation AMD A-Series APU is a major step forward in every performance and power dimension, allowing users to enjoy a stunning experience without having to give up the things that matter to them most. This experience doesn’t stop at mainstream notebooks. It carries over into affordable ultrathin form factors featuring the latest in AMD Radeon graphics.”

These processors are available today. Although of being notebooks oriented, they can be an ideal solution for a HTPC. This is what MSI thought, with the release their MC101 with A10-4600M/A8-4500M APU processors and 4GB of memory preinstalled.
