According to a VR-Zone report AMD’s Kaveri APU will be delayed to launch in 2014. They reveal that an AMD source has told them it will start shipping in late 2013 and will become available in mid-February 2014 to the retail channel.
Indeed, just this morning AMD gave the following statement to eTeknix, stating:
“(Consistent with AMD public guidance at CES 2013 and Computex 2013), AMD’s ‘Kaveri’ high-performance APU remains on track and will start shipping to customers in Q4 2013, with first public availability in the desktop component channel very early in Q1 2014. ‘Kaveri’ features up to four ‘Steamroller’ x86 cores, major heterogeneous computing enhancements, and a discrete-level Graphics Core Next (GCN) implementation – AMD’s first high-performance APU to offer GCN. ‘Kaveri’ will be initially offered in the FM2+ package for desktop PCs. Mobile ‘Kaveri’ products will be available later in the first half of 2014.”
This statement comes after AMD announced in January that Kaveri was coming in the second half of 2013. AMD’s roadmap, as pictured above, also shows us that we should of expected to see Kaveri in 2013. Anyone hoping to see Kaveri this year will have to wait a little longer as Q1 of 2014 is now the official launch time frame. It appears the 2013 arrival may have only referring to when the first parts will be shipped to AMD partners, not actual consumer availability.
