Production to meet super massive high demands of next gen consoles! maybe also playing a part.

I don't believe the rumours. Lisa Su stated at Computex that OEMs had already sampled Kaveri "several months ago" and "it will be shipping in 2013". The quotes are found exactly at the 26:00 minute mark of her presentation - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueHW0bJuZPQ

I suspect that Kaveri will be ready in time for Windows 8.1 (with HSA support) and Christmas stockings. This rumour of a delay follows on from the one last year that said Steamroller was cancelled. It was crap. And so is this one.

AMD can't afford these type of delays since Broadwell will be out at 14nm by Q4 2014. That means AMD's 28nm APUs will be going head-to-head against 14nm Core i3s. AMD is going to be behind 2 full nodes, which means they will have no chance at all to compete on margins due to higher manufacturing costs, performance/watt and CPU performance. With thin margins due to more expensive 28nm node, they'll continue to be lacking the necessary cash flows to increase R&D for future CPU/APU designs. Timely execution is critical to AMD's management's ability to try to turn the company around. Since GCN will have been out for 2.5 years by Q2 2014, it appears the firm is having issues with its Steamroller CPU architecture.

Nobody is going to line up in the middle of the night and buy those 14nm Core i3s.

Next gen consoles however... Is a different matter.

As usual "typical AMD delay", I expected this.

Hope AMD will use this delay to introduce also high end Kaveri APUs with 8GB of 256bit 4channel GDDR5 memory.

It's time for AMD to sacrifice their discrete Graphics Cards business and start making middle and high end APUs with 8GB of 256bit 4channel GDDR5, yes, sales of AMD discrete Graphics Cards will decrease but sales of APUs will increase dramatically and total Revenue for AMD will be much higher.

AMD by making middle and high end APU will put Nvidia and Intel on their knees as no one will buy expensive CPUs + GPUs when there will be much cheaper and less energy consuming APU with similar performance and enough for modern gaming. Only Extremely expensive GPUs like 1000usd Titan or Radeon HD 7990 can be better than APUs but it's a very small market.

Also high-end APUs will allow to use 8GB or more of fast GDDR5 memory when even 1000usd Titan can use only 6GB. So future games optimized for 8GB or more of fast GDDR5 will be much better comparing with current games optimized for maximum 2-3GB video cards.

So high-end APUs is a way to go for AMD!!!

If they go with 8GB 256bit 4channel GDDR5 memory, they will bomb the Intel's world upside down.

Another rumour started by stock market manager to increase turnover of stock true or false does not matter so long as the number of shares traded increases. The price is not what these chaps want just increase in turnover of stocks. If anyone believes these rumours and or has the gall to regurgitate this b/s means it is a very slow news day.

If Kavaeri is delayed - IF - then it will be no different than the delay of Ivy Bridge and Haswell - both of which missed projected delivery dates. The market is very dynamic and products are brought to market as quickly as possible.

Kaveri is a huge step forward for the PC world and consumers so I don't think it will make any significant difference if they start shipping in Q4 of '13 or Q1/H2 of '14. Consumers will be buying them as fast as AMD can deliver them no matter when they arrive.

Intel did not get hurt by delaying Ivy Bridge and Haswell. These days, AMD is no competition to Intel, so Intel did not lose anything. Now Kavaeri is delayed, so AMD is going to be screwed to compete against Intel. AMD can not afford to delay any products. If Kavaeri is delay, AMD should discontinue 80x86 and change over the resources from 80x86 to ARM. AMD needs to hull ass to develop ARM processors or else AMD is going to lose in both areas. Qualcomm and Samsung is already has high performing ARM processors that hurt nVidia's ARM processor.

Was really hoping to get AMD HSA in the next Surface Pro.
