AMD Kaveri Delayed, New Release Date In Early 2014

AMD Kaveri, the first APU to feature Steamroller architecture, is looking to be delayed. According to a source familiar with the matter, Kaveri didn’t tape out until after November 2012. The reason behind that is that AMD tried to squeeze more performance out of the core.

AMD Kaveri is the company’s next generation APU that was originally scheduled for launch in the fourth quarter of 2013 and features an x86 Steamroller core architecture along with the latest GCN graphics die. We have explained the architecture a few days ago so be sure to read it.

The new architecture was rumoured to come with a boost of around 30%, but it seems that AMD was not happy with the improvements and decided to squeeze more performance out of the core. According to rumours, Kaveri will only be available in two A10s and an A8 SKU, while the rest of the lineup is pushed into 2014.
