I assume it is AMD talking about this. I looked up the three names and they all have AMD origins or their name occurs on AMD papers.

SOI 2012 Conference.

Now this is an interesting thing since Kaveri was pushed to H2 2013 and Trinity 2.0 is taking its spot. http://semiaccurate.com/2012/08/06/amd-to-update-trinity-to-trinity-2-0/
Can this mean AMD has reversed their decision of going "bulk" on 28-nm. It would be surprising regardless since the similarities between FD-SOI and Bulk is so high.


Blue + Black = 28-nm FD-SOI
Black = 28-nm "Bulk"
