I don't think I ever heard anything about leaving the cpu market all together. They had said that they were not going to chase Intel anymore in the high end cpus. to be honest if this rumor is true it will be the first high end cpu from AMD since the old FX processors. so really it was just stating the obvious at the time.

It won't even get close. But then a decent X79 board would cost twice the price of a decent 990FX one.
