I was going to say that the date seems ludicrously aggressive, but then
I ntocied the scroll bar and kept reading.
So it would seem to come down to how much work is actually needed;
ok so you need the process shrink etc - that, assuming it's mostly
synthesized should be the relatively easy bit.
But what else is needed?
* Do they have working USB-3/SATA-2 modules that meet the requirements?
* What about the GPU - is there a working GPU ?
If they need to develop anything new then the timescale will be much
