To the disappointment of many, rumors have been swirling today at Computex that AMD had decided to delay the launch of their new Bulldozer architecture until at least July.

Hmmm now to decide weather to wait out the summer for them to release or just say F it and make the move to Intel for the firsttime in almost 15 years.

It's not like Intel (with all their billion-dollar bribes and threats) was going to allow AMD to make any money, anyway.

AMD knows it can't get through Intel's monopolistic business practices, so why try to innovate?

This news has been floating around as rumors for a couple of days now; it is disappointing to find out that it is true. Could be more to the story though. First, I doubt that Glofo could keep up with the demand for both Llano and Bulldozer. Second, Llano is most likely going to be the bigger seller as compared to Bulldozer (there has been a pretty steady demand for the Brazos chips so far, and I think Llano will be just as popular) Given these two thoughts, and the fact that Bulldozer could maybe be a little better at launch time with a new stepping, it makes sense to hold it back for a bit and churn out Llano wafers at full steam.

Is there actual proof to back this up or do rumours count as news now?

So does this mean an automatic delay for the Opteron 42xx/62xx's as well? I did not read anything about that yet...
