ITX Build: Trinity?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm building an ITX rig as a gaming HTPC in the next month or so. I've seen suggestions that Trinity may be releasing around the 15th August. I would have gone Bulldozer, but due to the lack of decent ITX boards for AM3+ chips, that's out.

Has anything been suggested regarding the performance of Trinity CPUs? Will performance be similar to Piledriver?

From what I have seen Trinity/Piledriver CPUs is going to bring AMD CPUs back up the the Phenom II level.

Is it worth going for as a gaming CPU paired with something like a 7850? The main reason I'm thinking of going with Trinity is because of the availability of ITX FM2 motherboards, and the likely low cost, probably not much more than the current high-end Llano.

Trinity is a 2 module piledriver without l3 cache, and a gpu added. So yes, it will perform "similar" to a 2 module piledriver. Release date is not looking to be near the 15th though, probably not august, or september....I want to upgrade as well to a m-itx a10 trinity setup from my llano itx a8, for no good reason except I want trinity,but its looking like a good wait is in order.
