Default AMD’s Chief Executive Does Not Predict Rapid K8L Ramp

Hector Ruiz, chief executive of the world’s second largest manufacturer of x86 microprocessors, said in an interview that Advanced Micro Devices’ new micro-architecture will not really take off this year, but will allow the chipmaker to ink contracts with computer makers. The announcement means that the company will continue to push its current lineup, which loses benchmarks when compared to Intel’s Core 2.

Doesn't seem much slower than the Intel P4 to C2D transition.

The point is, why should this be surprising? It seems rather surprising that they get it done so fast if you look how long it takes Intel to switch.
