I feel completely the opposite. For example the APUs released after Trinity are something I previously would never have thought someone would actually release to the market.AMD is executing very well when it comes to products.
With Steamroller a huge amount of features which are either not fully working or completely broken / missing, stuff that doesn't work as documented, etc. It's like someone pulled the plug on the project and many parts of the design were left incomplete, broken or untested. The situation improved quite alot in Carrizo / Bristol Ridge, but even they still contain some silly errors.
IIRC Trinity was the last project which had John Bruno as the chief engineer. It might be a coincidence, but Trinity is IMO the very last AMD design which is fully functional.
