Piledriver will be faster. I'm not even remotely worried about Trinity being faster than Llano... clock speed difference is far too much in Trinity's favor.

you're missing my point. intel IS faster in cpu-intensive tasks but amd is no slouch. you want a machine that is versatile that will be good with cpu intensive tasks as well as in gaming(intel igp is decent but far from amd). you want a balanced machine esp with a laptop which you cannot upgrade anymore unlike with desktops. again my point is in cpu intensive tasks intel IS faster but amd is no slouch. some people make it sound like intel is 10 times faster in cpu workloads. both are current gen and will get the job done.

edit:

im talking about a laptop within the same budget btw. if skies the limit for the budget then definitely intel cpu + discrete gpu smile.gif

So we'll have desktop trinity, mobile trinity, and now this "R" series trinity? I'm confused about what the R-series will be used in.

Nevertheless, if the benchmark results in the PDF file are correct, then AMD R-464L may still be faster in graphics applications than Core i7-3612QE, which is an Ivy Bridge successor of the i7-2710QE.

I would take that statement with a grain of salt. IIRC, if it has the same gpu as the A10-4600M, it would pretty much be similar in graphical performance--though likely not faster.

Regardless, at price points, it might be the most optimal choice. I'm just confused at what the "R" series APUs are marketed for (as opposed to the "mobile" series of trinity).

it will definitely be slower clock for clock without a shed of doubt but it has much higher clock speeds though so trinity will be faster. reminiscent to pentium II vs. pentium III when intel wanted MOAAAR HERTZZZZ

All in all, Trinity is only good for people looking for a cheap desktop, while people who game with a dedicated GPU will go much better off with a CPU from Intel.

£30 Intel Celeron G530 performs better than a Core2Duo E8400 and has HD2000 graphics. If you want a cheap desktop Intel is also a viable option wink.gif

The graph shows that AMD R-464L has 206%, and R-272F has 145% better performance than Intel i7-2710QE embedded chip in 3DMark 06 and Vantage v1.1.0 applications.

I think we have to deduct 100% from those numbers to make this statement true..

Without the actual scores it's really hard to get behind these PDF files.

Sure thing but ... after Trinity people don't need a 1000 $ laptop to play some games.

Exactly!

With Trinity, and even Llano, you can get a laptop with a more tame discrete card and have it in crossfire with the IGP and get really great performance for the money. That is the point people are missing!
