Default AMD Richland APU Preview: Trinity Gets a Facelift (Comment Thread)

Quote:
AMD have officially revealed the upcoming Richland APUs, which represent a unique amalgamation of old architecture with new, updated features and additional performance benefits for the mobile market. This new product range is somewhat unexpected given the fact that even a a few months ago Richland wasn't on most people's radars since roadmaps showed Trinity making a relatively quick transition to Kaveri. Now it seems as though things are being done a bit differently.

Not sure I need/want something like that on my desktop.

Gesture Control seems like a great feature for my HTPC though. I could see XBMC being compatible with gestures. Imagine being able to select and move through a tv show/movie with nothing but gestures. I could get rid of that clumsy mouse and keyboard for general media consumption.

Too bad these APU's don't fit in my existing FM1 motherboard. It's the only thing preventing me from upgrading. Oh, that and my current A6 is more than powerful enough for my HTPC needs.

Thats exactly what I want it for. my kid is pretty independent it would be nice to have him auto login under a set parental control (face) environment and use his hand for gesture control. Might help those Saturday morning sleeping in days.

Gesture Control and other Elite features will be ONLY for APUs. Discrete GPUs will not receive them as the compatible hardware has to be built into the platform itself.
