They also shed no light on its veracity because AMD would not allow a rumour site to break that news, they will wait until the next earnings call or Analyst Day.
The official denial actually added to the weight of Charlie's story in my mind. He regularly posts similar hyperbolistic crap about other companies who completely ignore him while what little is left of AMD's PR department bends over backwards to deny this one particular story....
I actually only semi-believe semi-accurate on this one (and that's more than I believe a lot of their stories). When it comes to pure-CPU systems that you as a consumer want to buy, then AMD is rapidly leaving that business. Don't expect anything post-Vishera for the AM3+ platform and don't expect there to be a successor to the AM3+ platform.
While Kaveri is definitely not a 2013 product, I think Charlie is jumping the gun when he claims that it has been cancelled and that there is no future for AMD in APUs above where the low-end Jaguar systems are aimed. AMD recently released statistics showing that 75% of its sales are from APUs and the majority of those are Trinity... you don't kill the product that is doing the best.
