This week has been a good news / bad news for Sunnyvale--but the bad, at least, was somewhat expected. The company gave notice today that its third quarter revenue would be lower than expected, with estimated quarterly income up 4-6 percent from Q2 levels. That's significantly less than AMD's original projection of ~10 percent, plus or minus two percentage points. The company's notice comes a month after rumors began that Bulldozer shipments might be delayed due to manufacturing problems. AMD announced it was shipping its server CPU, Interlagos, for revenue several weeks ago, but that announcement was originally expected in August. The company's news release states: The less-than-forecasted preliminary... Read more...
We expected AMD to talk about its upcoming Llano platform at the Computex trade show in Taiwan, and the chip maker didn't disappoint. AMD also talked about its Bulldozer platform that has enthusiasts chomping at the bit, saying the first Bulldozer products will ship in the third quarter of this year. But then, seemingly out of nowhere, AMD held up an engineering chip it's calling 'Trinity.' Trinity will be AMD's first Bulldozer-based APU. AMD was short on details, but speculation is that Trinity will probably sport eight cores and be compatible with the AM3+ socket. (Image Credit: computerbase.de) The name 'Trinity' has everyone wondering if there's any significance to the designation. One theory... Read more...
Asus recently contacted us with an interesting 3D graphics product that was intended to be nothing more than a proof of concept.  The product was affectionately named Trinity and though it didn't necessarily conjure up visions of leather-clad vigilante-dominatrix-hotties for us, it certainly did have an intriguing design.  The Asus Trinity prototype is built on a trio of AMD ATI Radeon HD 3850 GPUs in CrossFireX mode for tri-GPU performance on a single card.  Though perhaps that's not as interesting or innovative as how Asus went about cobbling this demo together.  Instead of designing a custom PCB, they took a path of least resistance and pulled together...

NZXT Trinity Gaming Chassis @ Phoronix "Of all the computer cases we've examined here at Phoronix, one of the best cases we've seen when it came to innovation was the Sytrin Nextherm ICS-8200.

Good morning everyone!!  It seems as if Mother Nature is making a valiant effort to free the greater Toronto area from his icy shell which arrived over the past few days.  With the sun melting what is hopefully the last ruminant of snow, this boy is itching to break out the mountain bike and hit the trails. In the mean time though, let's see what the good'ol News-Fairy brought in overnight...  NZXT Trinity Full Tower Case @ HardcoreWare "With the basic version carrying an MSRP of just around $70, the Trinity won't have to go to extremes to impress us. It has to look good though, and if you take a look you'll agree that they've at least succeeded in that. However, we found... Read more...
  Tyan S2662 Trinity i7205 Dual Channel DDR for the Pentium 4 By, Chris Angelini February 24th, 2003 KISS - four letters that together, can mean so many different things.  It's a '70's rock band, it's a gesture of affection, and for Tyan, it's an acronym.  "Keep It Simple, Stupid" - quite possibly the best way to avoid costly mistakes that occur when a manufacture gets over-ambitious in its motherboard design.  Indeed, Tyan's corporate overview cites reliability as a primary focus of the company and its products reflect that.  And as a result, Tyan has established a reputation for dependable server and workstation boards, only recently venturing into graphics...

  Tyan S2495 Trinity KT400 More KT400 Madness By, Tom Laverriere February 17, 2003 Now that NVIDIA's nForce2 chipset has become mainstream, it seems as though many other AMD based motherboard chipsets just pale a little.  We know at least one chipset maker that would disagree with this of course, VIA.  VIA's KT400 offering has a lot of the same bells and whistles that the nForce2 provides.  With the KT400 you get AGP 8X, DDR400 ( though not guaranteed ), support for AthlonXP 333MHz front side bus processors, USB 2.0, and ATA 133 to name a few.  So, if Dual Channel DDR is not all that important to you, then the KT400 chipset should be.  Although we may not see some...

    Tyan's S1854 - Trinity 400 VIA Apollo Pro133A with AGP4X       This is our first review ever of a product from Tyan here at Hot Hardware. There is no specific reason for that other than we just haven't hooked up with them before. Tyan is a US based Motherboard Manufacturer known for producing very high quality product. We are glad to see a "state-side" company in this market and were pleased to look at this exciting new board they have released. We recently looked at the Soyo SY-6VBA+133 board based on the VIA Apollo Pro133 chipset. As we noted, the board is based on the original rev of the VIA Apollo Pro133 chipset vrs. the Pro133A version. The main difference... Read more...
