It has been a day since AMD’s confirmation of the Ryzen 7000 announcement which has been scheduled for August 29th. This will be a live streamed event and will answer the most relevant and important questions regarding the next-gen CPU series. You will get information about SKU specs and pricing et cetera. The actual launch will be a month later.
Many of us might have been relying on the rumored launch date of September 15th. So technically, the launch hasn’t been delayed since AMD never officially confirmed the launch date. Rumors came from many different sources like board makers and reviewers and during one of the internal meetings, even AMD itself mentioned this date.
A reviewer on Chiphell has stated that they have been just informed about the postponed launch and change in NDA. There is new information that AMD is still currently working on the BIOS which might be the reason for the delay.
The bottleneck in BIOS is not a big issue and wouldn’t be a cause for a major delay. If it had been, AMD wouldn’t have made the “Next Generation Ryzen” announcement. Let’s hope this is true.
So far the rumors indicate that AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs will be launched on September 27th which is the same day when Intel is planning to introduce its Gen Core Raptor Lake-S desktop CPUs.
