AMD Trinity APUs Stack Up Well To Intel's Core 3 223

Barence writes "AMD's APUs combine processor and graphics core in the same chip. Its latest Trinity chips are more powerful than ever, thanks to current-generation Radeon graphics and the same processing cores as AMD's full-fat FX processors. They're designed to take down Intel's Core i3 chips, and the first application and gaming benchmarks are out. With a slight improvement in applications and much more so in games, they're a genuine alternative to the Core i3." MojoKid writes with Hot Hardware's review, which also says the new AMD systems "[look] solid in gaming and multimedia benchmarks, writing "the CPU cores clock in at 3.8GHz / 4.2GHz for the A10-5800K and 3.6GHz / 3.9GHz for A8-5600K, taking into account base and maximum turbo speeds, while the graphics cores scale up to 800MHz for the top A10 chip."

    Are you stoned? or just being funny? Linux has a 1.05% market share in consumer segment [netmarketshare.com] which means you're more likely to stub your toe walking down the stairs today than find a Linux user. Make it clear so you don't try moving the goalposts we are NOT talking about routers, cellphones, or servers, this is a CONSUMER CHIP and with a market share THAT low frankly it wouldn't be worth manufacturing if it is gonna target such a teeny tiny niche.

    Oh and since you apparently don't even have a clue about APUs? Little information...AMD has made it clear they will NEVER release the code for UVD, because that code is also tied into HDCP which means they can't divulge it for risk of getting blacklisted by Windows which as you can plainly see from the chart would lock them out of over 80% of the market, over 90% if you remove the ARM chips AMD don't sell. So if you were to actually put your 1.05% niche OS on that chip? Then NO HARDWARE ACCELERATION which is one of the biggest reason to own one of these chips in the first place!

    So before you start calling someone a troll and try pushing your niche OS? might want to try reading. Reading is fundamental..but not for zealots I guess.
