AMD 890FX launch is April 2010

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Quarter+ delay

AMD has internally delayed its 890FX chipset. Even though samples should be available in September time, initial production won’t start before January 2010. This looks like a whole quarter delay to us, but if all goes well AMD hopes for mass production in February 2010.

The launch is now planned for April, which is surprising as Cebit was usually the time when AMD launched its chipset, and Cebit usually takes place in the first week of March.

The VP of chipsets at AMD Phil Eisler went to Nvidia and this might cause some changes in the company's chipset strategy but overall, AMD won’t really have any new CPUs until this time either.

The 32nm AMD quad-cores are expected in mid-2010, if all goes as planned.

Currently AMD calls this chipset AMD 890FX, while the official brand is still to be decided. It might very well end up as 890FX.
