We expect to see the return of a very high end part by the time R comes around, assuming that there aren’t similarly debilitating delays. While we couldn’t really get the whole story from anyone, gd heard bits and pieces here and there during our three day briefing event in Tunis, Tunisia.

An eventual derivative of this architecture will be used in AMD’s Fusion processors, eventually making their way into a heterogeneous multi-core AMD microprocessor. While we appreciate AMD’s intent to keep prices in check, the justification is what we have an issue with.
