AMD Trinity APU Notebooks at E3 – MSI GX60 & Samsung Series 5
AMD Shows off Trinity APUs
AMD was hosting a reception for 2012 E3 VIPs at LA Live’s Katsuya when we saw two AMD powered laptops on display that were worthy of being talked about.
we were not able to do any benchmarks but we did take a look at the
computer properties. We squeezed some information out of our AMD host, but much is still
under NDA (as you can tell by the selective muting on the video below.
The second notebook we saw was Samsungs Series 5 Ultra-Thin Notebook that retails for $699. It is powered by an AMD A6-4455M APU running at 2.10GHz speeds. The notebook was launched in May but will has a staring roll at Computex this week.
US consumers should see the notebook on shelves by mid-June. If you have been waiting for an ultra-thin notebook that doesnt lack power and wont break the bank, this may be the machine for you.
After speaking with AMD it is clear that the company will be pushing the Trinity architecture
as one for gamers who want on-the-go power. The fully-functioning
notebook we saw was very zippy running 64-bit Windows 7 and the game titles that we were shown played great on these notebooks!
