Here you can see the AMD Trinity APU. Pretty much as big as any other Llano FM1 APU or Phenom or even Athlon II processor you have seen. This one has a Northbridge and a GPU merged into it though. And it makes all the difference.
AMD 'A' series APUs Generation 2 will not fit on Socket AM3/AM3+ though, the processors have a new socket design called FM2. Your Socket AM3/AM3+ CPU cooler however remains compatible with FM2. We fitted the good old OCZ Vendetta cooler without any issues.
Here we can see the laser inscription on the APU. We have two Trinity APUs at hand. We'll focuss on the A10 5800K APU though. It runs at 3800 Mhz and can turbo towards 4200 MHz.
That other APU is the A8-5600K running at 3600 MHz with a turbo allowance towards 3900 MHz. This part has 256 shader processors running at 760 MHz. We'll deal with this APU in another review though.

AMD A10 6800K review We review the 125 EUR AMD A10 6800K APU processor. Based on Piledriver architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU remains hard to beat in terms of features performance.
