I think you're seeing conspiracy theories where none exist. The place I copied the text from had som text in Swedish there within "" since it at least was in the NDA at the time to not mention the date. So I just replaced that with "something" not to confuse people and I thought it important to get the news out there about AMDs shady practices.
Let me tell you something about why they do this. Most people will just see the first "reviews" (as they think). They will skip over all "this is just a preview, AMD has only allowed of game testing" and so on and at most read the conclusion or look at the graphs and be fooled, yes fooled, into thinking "wow! that's a really good processor".
Oktober 2 is far far into the future in that regard. It's like the newspapers publishing something and that "correcting" it a few days later, 99% of the people who's heard about it will beleive what they first heard.
That's we it's a shady and underhanded tactic and you AMD fanbois will cry and bitch to no end about it if Intel/Nvidia ever do the same.
Nvidia: "You can release Battlefield 3 tests@1080p, no other tests until next week"
You: "OH, MY GAWD!!! what cheeeeets!!!!1"
Me: "This is just the kind of shady tacticts AMD pulled."
Nvidia Fanbois: "Nvidia are angels. You're post is silly, everybody can just read about it next week."
