    They are likely talking about high volume launch, while allowing limited sales to happen. When I bought my H67 board few days after Sandy Bridge launch, I got it off from a guy that bought it 7-10 days before.

    It's a largely pointless CPU to begin with so I guess not much people is missing that much.

    I assume from the article that its CPUs and boards to build yourself. OEMs might be affected as well. Guess its GloFos lack of ability to manufactor that strikes again. And AMD just focus on mobile chips with the highest margin first.

    According to that article, AMD was trying to kill off AM3/AM3+, but it still seems to be selling, so they're going to keep supporting it for a little while longer. Good news.

    It was obvious for along time now that they waited with FM2 to do that. They just didnt cancel the AM3 earlier like other CPUs. But not sure if they are doing themselves a bear favour there. Pilediver FX vs Steamroller APU.

    They are releasing new chips that will work on older AM3 boards?
