It appears that AMD’s new processors and motherboards really are just a few weeks away.
MSI has posted a promotional video on Weibo to hype up its upcoming X670 motherboards in the Chinese market, and one of the images can confirm that they will launch on September 15 alongside AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Series processors.
Sources with Wccftech had claimed earlier this week that these CPUs and motherboards would be releasing on that very same date, something that would suggest the August 29/30 announcement date that was teased is also correct.
Here’s the alleged schedule that was previously posted, the sales portion of which has been confirmed by MSI’s new video.
