Launch Date

This press release is in-line with our previous leaks which stated that AMD’s next-gen announcement will be held on the 29th of August. As for the actual release date, we still are not sure because various leaks have pointed towards a two week delay making 27-28th September a possible launch date. However, this results in a clash Intel’s Raptor Lake announcement.

MSI accidentally confirmed the launch date for its X670E motherboards (15th September, 2022). Now it can be possible that AMD could ask all AIB partners for a 2-week delay. Therefore, we will have to wait until the 29th of August.
