Why is Charlie saying the Kaveri APU wil be delayed to 2014? This would kill AMD if true. They need the Steamroller as soon as possible imo.
Why? Piledriver is fairly competitive against Intel's offering right now (but fails miserably in power dept, something not many care). Unless Intel's next trick in the book (Haswell?) significantly improves on Ivy Bridge pricing will allow AMD to still be competitive against Intel. Unless, of course, you are hoping AMD leapfrog Intel. That will unfortunately not happen anytime soon.
