In an interview with AMD’s Vice President, Worldwide Product Marketing,
Leslie Sobon, InsideHW has found out Llano’s release schedule. Llano
will only ship in Q2 2011, with general availability scheduled for
“Summer 2011″. This most likely suggests a Q3 2011 timeframe, or quite a
delay over the previously rumoured Q1 2011 release.

This means Llano follows in nearly six months after Intel’s Sandy Bridge. Ontario and Zacate, however, remain on track for Q4 2010 shipping to OEMs and early 2011 release for designs built around the Brazos platform.

The interview also touches on several other topics such as dropping ATI branding, tablet form factors for Ontario, and more. The full interview is available at InsideHW.
