AMD A8-7600 delayed to late 2014

ExtremeTech reports AMD's A8-7600 is unlikely to hit the market until late 2014. That's quite a deviation from the original roadmap to launch this part in March 2014!
Normally a mid-range part delay wouldn’t be big news, but AMD took the unusual step of positioning the A8-7600 as a launch part rather than focusing entirely on the high end of its nascent product family.

The reason for this shift was obvious: Because the Steamroller architecture doesn’t scale particularly well at high clock speeds. The modest 45W A8-7600 offered far better performance than AMD’s previous OEM-only A8-6500T, while the configurable TDP option let users choose if they wanted to run the chip at 45W, 65W, or “Unlimited.” In practical terms, this resulted in a Turbo Core frequency of 3.4, 3.6, or the full 3.8GHz (on average).
