Originally projected for an August launch, the desktop version of Trinity is now expected in September-October.
SemiAccurate’s Charlie Demerjian first reported on the delay in early June, followed by TechEye.
Benchmarks done to date indicate that while Trinity on the desktop proves to be power efficient, it is much slower than an equivalently clocked Intel chip.
While the desktop APU is nowhere in sight, the mobile version of the chip geared towards laptops and tablets has been the star of AMD’s show.
Despite the APU’s uncertain future, a number of motherboard manufactures had boards with FM2 – desktop Trinity’s socket – on display.
