Damn you guys ! !

Just when i had talked myself into settling for 3850, you have got me salivating over the A8-5500 Tongue

Although I knew a little of the Trinity APU's I didn't have any details of the A8-5500 until I saw this thread.
It know seems like a foolish move to go for 3850. Only thing that remains to be seen is the pricing.
I hope eskro is right & A8-5500 becomes the new A6-3500.

15th May couldn't come soon enough.

I am looking forward to A10-5700 + Gigabyte FM2 mini-itx (Gigabyte = no blinking LED in S3!)

No more messing around for me Smile

Dougie Fresh has the idea.

Like I have said before - APU release date is all well in good.
But as the socket architecture is FM2 and not FM1 then the release date that I am interested in is the date of the new MITX Mobos.

I'm sure that Scythe will have a CPU cooler for it.....

I am hoping for an improved stock cooler, that is more quiet, more efficient and also has a slightly lower profile.

I am going to guess the cooler will be the same size and the stock will be the same-ol' same-ol'.

i hope this will will bring the amd a6 prices even lower as well as the fm1 motherboards that should mean for an even less expensive htpc that can handle anything you throw at it

For light to mid gaming without a graphics card would you get a. A8 3820 that has a 6550d with 65watts now or wait for the apu trinity a10 5700 that has a 65watts as well. I have bought a antec 300-65 case for htpc use and gaming. If i buy the a8 3820 + AsRock A75M ITX it will cost £135.61 and the apu a8 3820 is used and cost around £72 to £70 and the motherboard cost around £71 to £65 i will be using it for as long as it does not die and wont upgrade every year that's why i cant make my mind up. what do you guys think
