Kaveri isn't delayed until 2014 ... you just won't be able to buy it in 2013

The VR-Zone published an article back on the 5th of August which detailed the delay of Kaveri's release until 2014.  The information they received put the initial production of the chips in December of this year, with them shipping some time in February of 2014 which they found quite disappointing as initially we were already supposed to be able to buy Kaveri if you go off of the initial announcements.  AMD was quick to respond and stated that there is no change to the current release schedule as they had only stated that Kaveri would ship in 2013, not that it would be available for purchase by consumers.  This is a frustrating situation for many enthusiast as the tweets and announcement at CES seemed to imply that we would be purchasing these chips already and is even worse for any system builders who had planned to be releasing systems based on Kaveri in time for the holiday season.  Maybe gutting the PR department wasn't the best decision AMD has made recently?

"Call it a delay by any other name, but AMD has sent out an official statement saying that Kaveri will be available in 2014 after shipping in 2013.

As a recap: Lisa Su’s Computex 2013 keynote ended with an on-stage demo of Kaveri and an announcement that it would be shipping “towards the end of the year.”"

You guys need to go back to school. Your literacy and reading comprehension are pathetic. AMD has stated for months now that they would ship Kaveri in December. They don't ship directly to airheads. They ship through the retailchannel like Newegg, Amazon, Tiger Direct etc. That means you get it at best the beginning of February. It's about time whiners who cry before they read properly wait to post . Egg in the face never looks good. VR Zone is run by a crowd that never really kiked AMD's products so they have an axe to grind. I pay little attention to Intel's shills unoess they invade an AMD thread.
