Sorry China, no Kabini for you

As you may have heard mention of on the podcast last night, AMD has a habit of crowding the lower end of the CPU and GPU markets with a wde variety of choices of product separated by very little money.  While this can lead some entry level PC buyers to a bit of confusion at first, having a wide variety of choices is a good thing for the consumer.  DigiTimes reported on an interesting decision made by AMD which bucks that trend, at least in China.  It would seem that instead of releasing Kabini there, AMD is depending on the deep price cuts they've applied to previous generations of APU to compete against Intel as those price cuts would make Kabini much less attractive in that market.  As a bonus we also received confirmation that Beema is still on schedule for the second half of this year.

"AMD is expected to ship 300,000 Kabini processors in the first quarter of 2014, 1.2 million units in the first half, and 3.8-3.9 million units in the whole year, the sources indicated."
