I'm sensing panic from AMD right now. The last thing they want to do after Bulldozer's release is to rush back out and bomb again....

I just got done reading an article about how AMD's Board of Directors dismissed Dirk Meyer back in January, because he felt the mobile platform held more importance to their success. Just an amature's opinion, this situation could very well be read as "Too Many Chiefs, Not Enough Indians". Nothing great ever came by way of design by committee, same goes for having too many backseat drivers. When you hire somebody to do something of importance, the last thing you want to do is get rid of them because they're just not doing it the way you would have. Having seen Llano's success despite the lack of chips, Meyer may have been right all along. Now it appears they're putting their chips on the Bobcat processor to cash in for them.

But what about Bulldozer? Make it also ran status?

Right now, all indications points to invetible failure due to pushing the panic button. They can't afford to screw this up. Doing so means they're out of contention for good. Intel's lead is widening and despite the fact they did their share of cheating, Intel will still be in the game while AMD sits at the end of the bench waiting for Intel to cripple itself.

I need to see more AMD APUs being featured on more popular notebooks and desktops. There simply is not enough. Maybe they are waiting on Windows 8 tablets to be released? At this point, I just do not know.
