Launch date in question
AMD's upcoming Cayman has been the source of much controversy in recent weeks due to a number of rumours and issues plaguing the launch.

Most partners did not get significant quantities in time and they expected the launch to be postponed by a week at best. AMD also did not deliver the final BIOS version as planned. In addition, rumours of yield issues also emerged and now there is another report painting a somewhat different light on the issues.
