AMD Korea leaks Trinity benchmarks in retail material?

trinity a10 AMD Korea leaks Trinity benchmarks in retail material?

It would appear that AMD's Korean branch office has been a little bit too eager to get its retail materials out to its partners and now some of that material has made its way onto the interweb. Normally this kind of stuff is quite boring and doesn't say much about the upcoming product, but AMD Korea has kindly included clock speeds and benchmarks to gives u a glimpse as to what to expect from AMD's upcoming APU.

The model in question in the retail material is the new A10-4600M, in other words a mobile APU. It will sport a "Thames" GPU core which will be known as the Radeon HD 7660G which is supposedly going to be clocked as high as 685MHz and it will have 384 “Radeon cores”. The CPU core is a quad core 35W part clocked at 2.3GHz with 4MB of L2 cache and it will support DDR3 1600MHz memory. The turbo frequency is also meant to be a fair bit higher than the current Llano architecture as the A10-4600M is expected to hit at least 3GHz.

The performance figures provided doesn't give us too much information, but the GPU core is mean to score 1135 points on its own in 3DMark11, throw in a discrete Radeon HD 7670M for some CrossFire action and you're hitting 2083 points, or better performance than a GeForce GTS 450. There's sadly no indication as to how good the CPU performance will be, but we have a feeling that AMD hasn't made any earthshattering improvements here, at least nothing that will rival Intel's performance. Still, it'll be interesting to see what AMD has coming, especially as more and more software seems to be getting OpenCL support and this is what could give AMD an edge over Intel.
