Update - AMD has now removed the words "recently launched" from their event summary.  

It looks like AMD's upcoming Ryzen CPUs will launch at or before GDC 2017, which starts on February 27th. This is according to GDC's own session schedule, which contains a session called "Optimizing for AMD Ryzen CPU", which is presented by AMD is said to take place after AMD's Ryzen launch.  
At this GDC session, which is presented by AMD, the company will be showcasing best practices which will help developers get the most out of AMD's new CPU architecture.  

Last year, AMD held their Capsaicin Event at GDC 2016, where the company first showcased their Polaris 10 GPU architecture and launched their Radeon Pro Duo (Dual R9 Fury X) GPU for game developers.

As you can see in the session schedule above, AMD will be launching their Ryzen series CPUs at or slightly before GDC 2017, which will take place between February 27th and March 3rd.

If this is accurate, then it is perfectly timed for me to sort out my Birthday present to myself. Quote

It's not ready. You can tell the one they were using was a production sample. When they order PCBs for those they order like one or two. My guy in Taiwan posted when they ordered those and it was in September. Raja said he was somewhere sorting out Vega on Twitter which all coincided with the order AMD had made for PCBs.

They have not placed a large order yet. IMO showing Vega was just to try and keep the wolves from the door tbh. It's nowhere close to release but AMD wanted to show something to go along with Zen. Which will probably increase their share price and get them more investors.

If you just assume that AMD will release at the same time of the year for GPUs you won't see them until June and in volume until August IMO.Quote
