AMD Trinity

The codename used for AMD's second-generation accelerated processing units (APUs).  AMD Trinity processors follow the company's first generation "Llano" processors, and are designed to compete with Intel's Ivy Bridge processors, particularly in the ultrathin laptop category, which includes Intel-powered ultrabooks and AMD Trinity-powered sleekbooks

Trinity processors are also designed to be used in desktop PCs, laptops, all-in-one PCs, home theater systems and more.  Trinity processors offer better performance (in terms of both CPU and graphics) and battery life improvements over Llano processors, although the chips do tend to lag considerably behind comparable Ivy Bridge processors in terms of CPU performance. 

AMD Trinity processors offset the performance disadvantage with lower price tags than Ivy Bridge chips, enabling laptop manufactures to offer ultrathin laptops at lower price points than Intel-powered ultrabooks.
