    Interested to see what the desktop plans are and what the performance is like. I have two ultra quiet PCs based on A10-7850K and have been very impressed.

    Starting to think that their desktop strategy is to never release anything to replace the current AM3+ chips/platform

    yup you may be right unless Zen pans out to be high end desktop part.

    Hoping for FM3, DDR4, PCI-E 3.0, and octo-core APU. They need to catch up on tech, and this seems a good time to do it.

    APUs are for lower budget builds, DDR4 isn't at that point yet, it's still too expensive

    Thought I had read this was the case somewhere else - that AMD was now putting most of its CPU/APU resources into mobile APU's as the company makes more money there and see's having a more profitable future there.

    The cost of making and designing high end CPU's vs the profit is not worth it for AMD.
