DigiTimes heard AMD delayed its desktop Trinity APUs from August to October in order to make some adjustments to the processors' designs.
Downstream motherboard makers are also rushing to make adjustments to their new motherboard projects set to release in the second half, according to sources from motherboard makers.
In addition to production and design issues with the Trinity processors, AMD's previous-generation Llano processor's high inventory levels which need to be digested are reportedly one of the reasons that AMD decided to delay the launch of Trinity. However, AMD did not confirm the speculation.
Many Socket FM2-based processors including A10-5800k will be delayed.
The site also adds that three new AM3+ Vishera chips are expected in October:
In October, AMD also plans to launch three new AM3+ Vishera-based processors (Volan) including FX-8350 (125W/95W) and FX6300, with FX-4320 to be launched at a later time.
