New SKUs point to improved yields


The lengthy AMD Llano shortage could be coming to an end, months after the original A6- and A8- series APUs were launched.

Analyst Nathan Brookwood points to the launch of several new variants as s telltale sign of improved production, but it will take some time before we see the effects in the retail market.
