AMD Desktop Trinity Update: Now With Core i3 And A8-3870K

Armed with two Piledriver modules, the Trinity-based A10 and A8 place first and second, respectively. A pair of Llano-based APUs takes third and fourth place, while Core i3-2100 finishes in fifth.

Same story in HandBrake.

We really liked the per-core performance improvements seen moving from Llano to Trinity. With Core i3-2100 folded into the mix, though, we’re reminded that Sandy Bridge is very effective in single-threaded apps. Ivy Bridge is even faster. So, when i3s start trickling out based on that architecture, charts like this one will favor Intel more heavily.
