Given the same TDP of 65 watts, and assuming the pricing is likely to stay roughly in line, why wouldn't one go for the A10-5700 when it comes?? There doesn't seem to be any disadvantage (except cost).
Sorry, no help w/out a *full debug log*

Yeah but my question is - ignoring cost, so only technical, is there likely to be ANY disadvantage to the trinity chips over the llanos? Honestly, I can afford it given the amount I use my htpc (add this to a silent streacom, is the plan) - I'd rather get it right that save any $s.

A10-5700 is the one I am excited about, for sure. I plan to replace my main living room HTPC with it. It's a i3-2100/H61 that's given me a hard time with deinterlacing Live TV 1080i content. I had to put my HD5670 in it which was in the old system it replaced so I was not too happy. The i3-2100/H61 will make a nice upgrade to my office PC Smile. I will wait to see prices though, especially compared to Ivy Bridge i3-3225 when it comes out.

Look's like the apu trinity desktop apu will be launched in August. And the notebooks models will be release this month

I am more looking forward to kaveri that will have graphics performance on par with Radeon HD 7750. Now that will be amazing to see

Yeah I am waiting till the 15th to see what comes but will probably go A6 3500 if August = accurate, then rebuild when trinity plus one comes out I think.

If you are thinking of replacing A6-3500 with a Trinity later, you'll have to gut the entire A6-3500 build to do that....it’ll be an expensive rebuild for sure…..

Price doesn't bother me really, I don't spend much on myself and this is my one hobby, so I want Right rather than Cheap.

The idea was (is) to actually skip trinity for the next APU (FM2/FM3?) - so yes new mobo and APU, but the rest (Case, SSD, RAM maybe, etc) will probably still be usable with Trinity + 1.

Desktop Trinity is looking like August according to the news I can find today, so that's too long to wait, I have $1000 credit burning a hole in my pocket...
