AMD has stated that it is not economically feasible to release chips below Cape Verde on TSMC's nascent 28nm process during this generation.

Trinity and Kaveri would render any such products rather pointless anyway, Kaveri will make HD 7750 level graphics the new baseline.

It's also worth considering that Cape Verde is already very small at 123mm2. If TSMC's 28nm process was yielding better and costing less then all the GPUs in the 7xxx lineup could have moved down one rung.

Anybody know what the die size of GK108 is?

Pretty much the wrong thread, but ok. Bringing 76xx and lower to 28nm makes no sense as long as TSMC has severe limitations in capacity.

Other than that, sub 77xx performance has little left to go for, as Trinity already offers theoreticle 6670 level performance. The 17W Trinity APU's already should come with quite great performance, let alone the higher TDP versions. They claim performance of the 444MHz 400SPU Llano part iirc, which comes already reasonably close to 6670m. The 77xx and up mobile parts technically are binned lower poser and lower performance desktop parts.

Life, it all of a sudden comes back to you and you have no clue who it is.

ok, thanks guys, so amd has launched all of their laptop and desktop 28nm GPUs already. good work amd.

ok, back to ultrathins. i can't wait to get mine. i wonder what brand it'll be? and how much longer until some good ones come out? i want to smash my current laptop.

I want a Thinkpad with T series durability, real think keyboard, and a bit of weight to it

Intel has priced their ultrabook CPUs at $220 and $320 for the i5 and i7 respectively. I.e. a dual-core IVB clocked 1.8 GHz starting at $220. AMD has got a lot of room to operate here... That 25W APU sounds like a master stroke.

interesting why you say the 25w is and not the 17w. because it will be easier to make than the 17? or have more power? what are you thinking?

HP Envy Sleekbook, the 15.6" version is Trinity powered, at $599 it undercuts ultrabooks by huge margins. In fact, come to think of it, it undercuts regular laptops from Intel! Here's hoping we see more Sleekbooks across various screen sizes.

It is the right balance between performance and portability / battery life.

It costs $100 less than an IB based Sleekbook(bigger HDD, smaller display) but which Trinity is that? Certainly not 2M/4C but 1M/2C with the weakest Trinity IGP.

BTW I would rather go for Probook S starting at $589. Sleekbook's glossy parts are not to my liking along with that touchpad.

Nice, it's wierd the Probook looks gets a refresh, from what I saw the IVB based Elitebook is still identical to my current Probooks basic design, but this is just random, although I think my Probook will stick with me this time around

Here's some specs:
