A8 and A6 APUs to come with GCN HD 7000 graphics.
Turkish website DonanimHaber has apparently leaked the full details of the upcoming AMD A10 ‘Trinity’ APU, as well as the second generation of A8, A6 and A4 APUs.
The new A10 trinity APUs will come with the same four ‘Piledriver’ cores as the A8 and A6 models. Apart from the rated TDP and clock speeds, the main difference between the four types of processors comes in with the onboard GPU each APU carries. The A10s carry the HD 7660D graphics, with 384 Graphics Core Next stream processors. The A8s come with HD 7560D with 256 GCN stream processors. And finally the A6 and A4 come with HD 7480D with 128 GCN stream processors.
The A4 APU is the only processor that doesn’t allow dual-graphics mode, which means you cannot pair it up with another discrete AMD graphics card to make it run in SLI mode, which is the case with all the other APUs.
Slated to be released in the 2nd quarter of this year, the A10 Trinity APUs should hit the market soon. Of course, this is still a leak, so one shouldn’t complete take these as the final specs sheet.
