AMD, recently hammered by a Q2 warning, has reportedly delayed the launch of the desktop versions of its Trinity processors from August to October. The delay is blamed on design changes, but it's also noted high inventories exist for AMD's prior-gen Llano CPUs, and time is needed to clear them out. Trinity was unveiled in May to good-but-not-great reviews; a delay won't do anything to soothe worries about desktop share loss to Intel's (INTC) Ivy Bridge line.
