AMD's Zen and Intel Kaby lake CPUs are reportedly delayed


A report from Digitimes state that AMD's Zen CPUs and Intel's Kaby lake CPUs have both been delayed until Q1 2017, with Intel delaying Kaby Lakes launch due to excess Haswell and Skylake stock and AMD Zen delay having no clear reasoning. 

Both of these reports cannot be verified, but if they are true the second half of 2016 has become a much less interesting time for PC enthusiasts. Hopefully, this reported delay for AMD's Zen CPUs is not a sign that AMD is facing any major problems manufacturing these CPUs. 

  AMD's Zen and Intel Kaby lake CPUs are reportedly delayed


Right now we do not have any clear launch dates for either Intel's Kaby lake CPUs or AMD's Zen CPUs and AM4 platform but reports from Computex have previously hinted at a November release for Kaby Lake and Intel 200-series motherboards.   

At this time we cannot verify these reports from Digitimes, but if they are true we are likely not to see any new CPUs until early 2017.

Would have thought issues relating to the architecture would have been ironed out by now.Quote

Don't believe the AMD delay. You can't claim it's delayed and then not saay why. Who started that rumor? If he's(or she) is getting paid to make up stuff I'd love to get that job too.

AMD have said it's this year. Q4. So we would need other reports of bad yields or flooded stock of FX CPUs. But we know those aren't true. So don't see how someone can claim this unless they have inside information.. But then why wouldnt you make that statement? I can believe Intel delaying stuff. They have had such a hard time lately with 14nm. So much so they aren't on Moore's law anymore.Quote

Same with the B's that AMD had nothing for the show. Bunch if nonsense with not evidence.Quote

Intel delaying Kaby Lakes launch due to excess Haswell and Skylake stock
The excess Haswell stock is probably because most motherboards are out of production now. Over here in the UK, trying to get a Z97 mATX or Mini ITX brande new (Which I wanted ironically) is near impossible. Besides the pricing is ridiculous, why would anyone want a 4790K when they can get a 6700K for about £10 more?

That and it would also help if Intel released a CPU that had a decent performance increase to warrant the cost.Quote

Aw c'mon! Delayed again? I'm dying to see these new Zen chips. Postponed my rig overhaul when word of Zen popped up last year. Waited til this spring then told to wait til this winter now we're going to ask to NEXT spring? Hopefully this is a BS rumor.Quote
