Trinity, is the second-generation processors from AMD. Processor A-Series APU (accelerated processing unit, a combination of CPU and graphics processor).
Like the Ivy Bridge, Trinity has up to four-core processor and comes with integrated graphics processing unit. Trinity graphics unit using Northern Islands architecture is also implemented on the graphics card Radeon HD 6000 series from AMD.
Thanks to the integrated graphics processors, AMD claims that the Trinity is able to provide the experience of playing a better game on the user.
Trinity can play 1080p HD video, and run the game at 30 frames per second rate. Rate of 30 frames per second is a minimum standard for the game to run smoothly.
The processor core architecture adopts Trinity Piledriver, which uses power saving technology called the resonant clock mesh technology. This technology allows Trinity to recycle some of the electrical energy used during operation.
The result, power consumption can be reduced to Trinity 17 watts, or only half the rate recorded its predecessor, Llano. Due to power saving, battery laptop using even this processor is claimed to last up to 12 hours.
