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
