SemiAccurate rips internet "controversy" over AMD 8000 Line

Please let the stupidity surrounding AMDs Sea Islands (CI) end
Rant: The internet echo chamber goes in to full 'tizzy' mode over nothing
Most tech sites were in a bit of a tizzy last week over what AMD is releasing or not releasing in 2013. Unfortunately for those who were looking to froth at the mouth over something, it is all a tempest in a teapot.
What is AMD releasing for the Sea Islands (CI) line? Basically nothing worth bothering with. It is a mild tarting up of the Southern Islands (SI) GPUs just like we told you last October. In fact, we described the CI line as, pretty ho-hum, not exactly a ringing endorsement for a new line of high end GPUs now is it? And we also said that it was due in March, not 2012, but more recently inventory concerns have moved the official launch out a bit.
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

I blame Twitter and Facebook.
