    A little slow? It was supposed to be out months ago This is the second time it has been pushed back, and motherboards are supposed to be ready. If there was a problem with the silicon, that could push it back 3 months for a re-spin, but this is getting silly.

    Supposedly the chips are now going into mass production. Given the usual 3 months it takes from wafer start to chips coming out, getting them to a motherboard factory and placed on boards, then those boards on a boat and into our shops we are probably looking at around May.

    But if new AM4 motherboard products are turning up in summer, that implies the companies think they have a worthwhile lifespan at that point so I doubt a new socket is imminent.

    What are the chances of the current chips working on newer motherboards and chipsets, will AM4 be compatible with AM4+, or will it be another Intel where 1151 has been around for a while but 7th gen chips dont work with the newer chipsets?

    Crystal ball time; sadly mines in the wash...

    From what happened (or didn't) at CES I've decided that it will be a screen update to a 1440p with high refresh or a 1080p high refresh ips based one and a new gpu (and i might just refresh my storage)

    I am not replacing the case again (and right now there is nothing that takes my fancy, all tower or mid tower and i want cube) and the current crop of motherboards / cpu / ram and the transition to pci4 etc to me don't make it worth it; rather disappointed

    So far AMD has kept compatibility, other than motherboard manufacturers cheaping out on bios chips
