|Trinity die shot|
Here are some more Trinity Benchmarks. It looks like IPC increases by +10-20% for these tests when compared to the FX 8150, but it appears in these tests, IPC still does not catch up with the older K10.5 architecture.
In single core / threaded performance, the 2 module / 4 thread AMD A10-5800k @ 4.2 Ghz stock compared to a four core i5 2500k @ 3.7 Ghz is ~10.9% slower in FPUperformance test, and ~13.3% slower in the Integer performance test.
EDIT: Assuming the above ratio's are correct, and a scaling benefit of 10% (taken from cinebench 11.5) from the FX 8150, a 5.0 Ghz FX 8350 Will perform roughly 57% better in Int. Math, and 60% in FPU than an i5 2500k @ 5.0 Ghz when all threads can be used.
The mobile variant for trinity the quad-core AMD A8-4500m @ 2.2 Ghz (EDIT: 2.6 ghz TurboCore 3.0)when compared to the quad-core intel i7 2920xm @ 3.5 Ghz is only a mear ~20.0% slower in the FPU test, and ~31% slower in the integer math test. But remember the intel i7 has a huge (EDIT: 34.6%) clock advantage!!) Just look at the FP / Int per Ghz on the i7 2920xm compared to the A8-4500m.
If you think thats impressive, just wait for the mobile A10-4600m @ 3.2 Ghz TurboCore 3.0! ^^ I suspect if these clocks are correct, that the A10 will be a serious mobile ivy bridge competitor.
ADDED: Following this trend, we see a 2M/4T Trinity 17w ultrathin platform part @ 1.8 Ghz Turbo will perform significantly better than current i5 or i7 ULV processors.
Not only will AMD offer superior GPU horsepower with these new chips, but early CPU benchmarks impy Piledriver really is what Bulldozer should have been to really be the intel killer CPU people hyped it to be. The IPC difference between K10.5 and piledriver is ~5%, which will vastly outweighed by the higher clocks, especially for mobile parts.
