AMD once again changed its 32nm roadmap, the Llano APUs are now expected to hit the market in Q2 2011 while the high-end Bulldozer processors have been delayed to summer 2011. According to AMD interim CEO Thomas Seifert, the Orochi desktop parts will arrive in early summer while the Orochi server models will arrive in late summer.
"We have entered a new phase with our 32nm ramp and are now sampling thousands of Llano products to a wide variety of OEMs and ODMs as they prepare for production in Q2," said Thomas Seifert, interim chief executive officer of AMD, during a conference call with financial analysts.
Back in early November it was, reported citing unofficial sources, that AMD would commence commercial manufacturing of code-named Llano accelerated processing units (APUs) for desktops and mobiles in July '11, which is Q3 2011.
Meanwhile, microprocessors with Bulldozer micro-architecture were supposed to hit the mass production sometime in April '11, according to unofficial sources.
