Engadget was down at AMD’s Financial Analyst day, and they managed to make their way to the demo area before capturing an image of the ODM reference unit from Compal that ran on AMD’s soon-to-be-realized Trinity APU. This particular demonstration unit functioned as a proof-of-concept, where it is tiny enough to fit into a rather slim 18mm shell. The build question did seem rather suspect, however, since it flexed quite a bit when the Engadget team handled it. Word on the street has it that AMD has plans to market the completed device for around $500 or $600 a pop, where it will also come with a couple of USB 3.0 ports, a mini-DisplayPort and HDMI support, audio jacks, and Ethernet connectivity. Time to start saving up for one of these, I presume?
