    Is AMD GPU at GloFo confirmed, or is it still a rumour at this point? A few things hint towards it, but it's not the first time it's been said to happen.

    They are promoting the 14nm improvements over 20nm but when did AMD start selling anything with 20nm ??? At this rate, Intel will be more than 2 years ahead. Having less sales too pay for R&D and then cutting back R&D to save costs leads to products less people want, less sales and the downward spiral accelerates.

    There was talk that 20nm wasn't suitable for AMD. The money is in ARM SOCs these days, so I guess that is what 20nm is aimed at.

    if you know it work's just skip it .. and do 14nm save production cost for the 14nm process and get back in the game ..
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true
    (Cassandra, in Agamemnon by Aeschylus)
