As Trinity chips are made more available to the rest of the world following the October 1st launch, AMD has changed prices of available stock of socket FM1 processors based on the Llano architecture which was based on Bulldozer. The dual-core A4-3300 drops from $46 to $30, the A4-3400 drops from $48 to $35 and surprisingly the Trinity-based A4-5300 dual-core drops massively from $53 to $30 to compete effectively with Intel’s low-end Celeron lineup, only due for an Ivy Bridge refresh early next year. While single-core performance may be better in the Intel camp, AMD’s APUs have far better graphics which may prove more useful with OpenCL-accelerated apps in the future.
