I am really angry now
Q2 2014 for the Steamroller parts to start kicking in (APU), Q4 2014 for the gpu-less FX desktop chips to arrive on us (like Piledriver did).
(personally I think that Steamroller is gonna make Intel butthurt. You can find why in the link below.)

up to $300 might be a decent value. If they are actually going to ask $900, it will have to have more under the hood than that.
Wat. No. It's an architectural improvement, by the same (or more) magnitude than from Bulldozer to Piledriver.
