possibility yes but there are a lot of people like me that needed a new system and decided a 2600 was a major bang for buck, i will likely be a day one for zen 2, and possibly navi.
as per the article, i have to say it comes off very personal/heated. not sure if its true news as AMD have yet to confirm/deny their previous statements about back and forth compatibility. either way its a pretty simple software update thats required, i could see it being a limit to vcore if the hardware instability is a factor, but to me thats why we have stability checks and you cant just boot a system at whatever manual settings you want.
ill be sad if its true, and MSI is denying zen 2 on 300 series boards because
Greedy motherboard vendors such as MSI want you to buy a new motherboard every two generations of processor for no sound reason at all.
ill wait for proof/facts.
hoping MSI isnt stooping to new lows, its one of the few board manufacturers i trust. all that would be left is asrock and ive never actually owned anything from them, just built systems for friends. gigabyte has terrible customer satisfaction on many,many items lately. and asus is way to proud considering their pricing and horrible customer support.
