Me I'd rather be late with a Halo (bragging rights product that will be on par in performance and $200 less... and hardly add to the bottom line) than have the competition own the $130-350 range uncontested, for what's like 7-8 months! AMD will have new 8XXX parts ready 3 months after GK106 starts to make strides.
It's not any disaster for AMD.
Yeah, not a disaster at all.
Actually, today is a big day for AMD. They managed to achieve lowest stock price in 1 year calendar :
A delayed flagship product, a couple of crucial staff gone (John Bruno to Apple, Bob Feldstein to NVIDIA, Ben Williams to Calxeda Inc.), lowest stock price in 1 year? Not a disaster at all. They'll bounce back stronger!
