Want to buy one of AMD's new Trinity desktop APUs? Good news. Newegg has four different models in stock, and they all come with promotional $5 gift cards. The range-topping A10-5800K sells for $130, while its slower A8-5600K counterpart can be had for $110. Those quad-core models are complemented by a pair of duallies. The A6-5400K rings in at $75 and the A4-5300 costs just $60.
Newegg is charging a little more than the 1,000-unit prices quoted by AMD. The chip maker asks $122 and $101 for the A10-5800K and A8-5600K, respectively. The A6-5400K has a $67 list price, while the $A4-5300 is pegged at $53. Don't think that Newegg is trying to take advantage of early Trinity adopters, though. The e-tailer charges similar premiums on Intel CPUs.
TigerDirect's stock list mirrors Newegg's, and the prices are almost identical between the two. However, the only Amazon listings are for third-party vendors, which are charging a little more than Newegg and TigerDirect. North of the border, NCIX's website is devoid of listings for desktop Trinity processors.
Newegg's $5 gift card promotion expires October 15, so there's plenty of time to take advantage of the offer. I wouldn't be surprised to see desktop Trinity APUs pop up in motherboard combo deals, as well. The chips plug into a new FM2 socket, so they won't work with older boards.
