I still think we are getting a Intel soft launch soon with some Intel hand picked CPU's so they can show them off.
But like you said availability will probably be sept.

Indeed. With the ongoing Bulldozer disaster and the tablet threat settling down we may be starting to see that old, imperialistic Intel again. Putting a bugfixed Bay Trail in the 2820 NUC and not distinguishing it from the buggy product is a particularly telling example of a company that doesn't see the need to be competitive, to say nothing of the cost per unit of CPU performance remaining roughly unchanged for the last 2-3 years. In fairness to Intel, 14 nm is a really small number and it wouldn't surprise me at all if they're not getting reliable silicon--just because marketing promises something by a certain date does not automatically mean that R&D is capable of making it happen.
