[wccf] AMD Confirms Radeon HD 8000 ‘Sea Island’ Delay – Says HD 7000 Series To Remain Primary Focus - Page 16  

post #151 of 184
Guys, AMD never confirmed anything. I wrote the tweet, we never spoke to WCCFTech, and we've never so much as hinted that a next-gen product would be coming this year. That part where WCCFTech claimed we've released reports on a next-gen was completely fabricated (¶2, first sentence).

We even announced at CES that "Sea Islands" was our mobile products, and reinforced that today's assortment of HD 7000 products at your local etailers are the products you can expect for months to come.

When I said that the HD 7000 Series is our focus for the foreseeable future, I meant it.

You can't delay a product that hasn't been scheduled, planned or announced. This "article" is rubbish.

So what are you saying? The 8000 series will be coming before Q4? Possibly a 8990 coming this year?

I'm saying exactly what was written. If you see an article on the "schedule" or "delays" for HD 8000 Series, it has been invented entirely by the author to drive traffic to their website. HD 7000 Series is a product AMD and our partners are happy with, and that's it.

So are you saying that AMD has no plans for a follow up to HD 7000 Series this year?

The better question might be whether or not AMD even has enough access to capital at this point to engineer and manufacture a non-rebadged HD 8xxx series...

Please refer to my previous posts concerning our product roadmap: HD 7000 is our focus for the foreseeable future. That really is all there is to it.

So what you're implying is that desktop 8xxx is vaporware and its existence is totally fabricated by many tech sites.
Anyway, its obvious that AMD is waiting for nvidia to make a move. 8xxx have been ready since last year, its a matter of what the rival will push out. While they're waiting for nvidia to roll its stuff out, they polish up the drivers for maximum impact.

Here's some facts: AMD's stock has dropped by 69% in the last 10 months, their credit rating recently got dropped to "CCC", and their cash balance is down to 550M. Combine that with their less-than-aggressive stance regarding the HD 8xxx series, and you should be able to connect the dots.
