AMD isn't resting on their laurels, which is why they've got their latest and greatest processor out now. It's called Trinity. Its fast, cool, efficient, and has some terrific graphical tricks up its sleeve.
The chip packs a significant CPU upgrade, by 29 percent according to AMD. The real muscle though, comes with the built in GPU. The Radeon HD 7000, stuffed onto the same silicon, provides GPU acceleration for a huge swath of applications you're probably using every day.
This results in allowing the CPU to free up power, allowing CPU and GPU to tag team heavy software for more performance. The first batch of Trinity chips will be topped off by the A10-4800M, with four CPU cores, a base clock speed of 2.3 Ghz, and 4MB of L2 cache.
AMD's also releasing a super thin and efficient model, the A10-655M, which will power new tinybooks with two cores at 2 Ghz and a 4 MB L2 cache.
AMD is essentially ceding the CPU war to Intel as pointless, with the presumption that GPU acceleration is going to matter more in the long run. Do they have enough mojo to win the war?
