I'm going to purchase a A10 5700 APU.

Looking for this APU, I found two different items available (see image below).

Both have AD5700OKHJBOX code, but "+ TRINITY POS KIT" is specified in one case.

I found "TRINITY POS KIT" looking for other Trinity APUs and looking in other e-shops.

What does "TRINITY POS KIT" stand for?

Is it different from common boxed packaging?

If I had to guess, I would say it is another way of saying "Retail Kit" as apposed to "OEM."  Usually retail kits come with the fancy warranties and the stickers and such, while OEM kits may just be processors with or without heatsinks in blister packs instead of boxed.  POS in this instance would actually mean "Point of Sale" as a reference that a normal consumer (not a builder/reseller) is the intended purchaser.


From a Tandy w/AMD 286/12mhz and 1MB ram to FX-8350 w/32GB ram.  I don't know everything by far, but I have probably forgot things you never knew.  Always happy to help, happy to be wrong, and happy to learn.
