But here are a few desktop samples for you to look at in the meantime! Before you get ahead of yourself though, AMD isn’t planning to launch Trinity processors for mobile until much later in Q3 of this year. Yeah, no, you’ll be better off checking things out at Christmas time if you’re looking for an upgrade for your laptop or netbook. Desktop users won’t have to worry, though.
Confused? I am too, but the company has been on a mission to make sense and sensible decisions lately, so I guess this is about right. AMD wants its third-party mobile manufacturers to sell out stock of Llano boards completely before they let Brazos 2.0 and Trinity hit the market. Rory Read has this minor issue with tons of Llano stock left waiting to be sold and wants that out (possibly at massively discounted prices) before the company gets their ducks in line with the revised Bulldozer design. While doing so, it can prioritise the production of Trinity and Brazos chips and also Piledriver for the desktop, as their predecessors suffered a lot of stock issues a couple of weeks from launch.
