AMD, Intel Duking It Out In Processor Ring During CES 2017? | Digital Trends


Thanks to the potential delay, manufacturers won’t be able to begin mass producing products based on Zen and Kaby Lake until November or December. The PC market isn’t expected to pick up until the first quarter of 2017 anyway, and these products should help ignite some interest and give the market a needed boost. However, as always, take these launch windows with a grain of salt, as AMD and Intel have not released official launch plans to the press as of this writing.


Guess this means Windows 7 and 8.1 will not be receiving support by Microsoft for Zen...
