VR Zone received leaked slides that reveal the launch details of AMD's Kaveri desktop APU. A lot has been written about this chip's delay, AMD will tell you that Kaveri is a 2013 part but the truth is that actual retail availability isn't expected until mid-February 2014.
AMD decided to officially announce the Kaveri desktop APU on December 5, 2013 but the slide reveals that initial production isn't expected until December 27, 2013.
AMD’s response to news of Kaveri’s delay was confusing. When asked, Roy Taylor, AMD’s VP of channel sales, claimed that AMD never said the launch would be before Christmas, and the chip would be available shortly after its formal launch at CES. He chalked up delays to HSA’s marketing not yet being complete, saying the architecture itself was ready to go. An AMD PR official said in early August that, “[Kaveri] remains on track and will start shipping to customers in Q4 2013, with first public availability in the desktop component channel very early in Q1 2014.”
On top of that, an anonymous sources at a Taiwanese OEM told VR Zone that AMD had only just shipped out a production candidate sample for testing - which means the company will have a tight testing window before mass production starts.
