the last update was, AMD rhombofication approved ,they want to assembly in spain but they have problems with mold case factory,the don't want to go to china, others option portugal.
about the fan the still  going in the same direction and they said in some test that with the fan the device can go up top 28tpd.
its look like another delay maybe ,but they didn't said nothing yet.
Members we already start talking about in next gen APU of AMD.
so its what its.
Personally i don't about the delay i want the right and fully work device

Thanks for the clarification.  Have they shown any pics or the machine in action?  If they are choosing manufacturer, then R&D is close to complete.

They have issues, particularly with the case molding.  They are now looking at finding another company to do the molds for the case which is going to delay things further.  So much so that they canceld their appearance at E3. 
They also burned out all the AMD Merlin Dev boards they had

If they think that they can cool 28W in a system that size, they're out of their freaking minds. And they managed to burn out all their dev boards?!

Well the good news there is that I believe they are still planning to limit the SOC to 12-15W.

Based on our experience developing/making products, we consider that Smach Z has not been able to understand or value the complexity of development and fabrication that this kind of product implies, regarding to the technical and economic matters.

No kidding.

It seems that Smach Z updated with a response to Rhomb.io on the 27th and yesterday. Can anyone tell us what they said?

MJPIA posted the June 28th update on the Pyra forum a while ago.  Basically they say they are working with a new company and are pressing on

I don't know what the last update made on the 29th says. Hopefully someone can fill us in on that

We got some comments from Daniel, the project still running, new partners bleujour recommended from AMD, the console it will be modular, meaning the Ram, storage and others things like if you buy from retailers store laptop upgrade, the SoC it will be modular too and about ImasD it will be legally handled.so meaning maybe next year .

Thanks @leafar .  They are way too optimistic.  Could u ask them how much fund they have left?  Seems like they are starting R&D all over again which could be expensive.
