So there are new APU's and FX processors announced that will be coming out as well as a replacement for the R9 280/x series GPU's

New CPU's Announced

-Athlon X4 860K -Athlon X4 860 -A4-7300 -A10-7800 -A8-7600 -A6-7400K -FX 8370 <-- FX processors aren't dead yet

There is also some hints(leaks) out there there will be a second FX processor in the works thats also eight core

New GPU

-R9 285

this new gpu will be replacing both the R9 280/x so watch out for them because this means they will be dropping in price to bring in the new GPU.

P.S. Not a fanboy of AMD, I use both Intel and AMD but I hate seeing a great company dying off like AMD is.

They won't necessarily drop the price of the 280x. They could just cut back the production, allowing the supply to be limited, justifying the stay in cost.

If it hasn't been officially announced, it might as well not exist.

Which one?

The ones about the FX chips and the Tonga GPU. This stuff has been rumored for a long time, but there has been no official announcement, not even a word from AMD. However, we already know that the A8-7600 exists(tech sites got review samples in January), and the article about the rest of the APUs quotes AMD's marketing manager for desktop products.

AMD has has the tonga gpu's already but were hesitant to release them so we will see them by the end of this year.

The FX processors are just a no brainer. AMD was not going to give them up but might be doing more of them but with not as many improvements.

Most of the Tech news all come out as rumors. If you really pay attention not that many companies announce until its the month of the release the product but if they do announce ahead of time then they get delayed because of things that they didn't see. Just look at the RGB keyboards they were supposed to be out already and where are they?
