Sad to see there are some limitations to this, however, MSI has smart people behind the scenes to know the backlash it might cause.

They will find a way to make right by their customers if many voice their concern.

- Publish an unconfirmed story.
- Refuse to update it with the new developments.

It's not stated that all AM4 motherboards will support all CPUs across all gens. It's expected by everyone that all top end boards from each gen can support the majority of newest ones though... It's the reason I bought an X470 Taichi, rather than going for a cheaper B board. But that does not mean that everything will be compatible. You can't expect an A-320 motherboard to support an r7 3700x for example. They never stated there were no limitations here. In other words, being compatible with 4 generations of Ryzen doesn't mean that all CPUs from all generations will be compatible with all motherboards. The higher end the CPU, the more unlikely it is to work on lower end boards.

MSI Issues Clarification on Next-Gen AMD CPU Support on 300-series Motherboards
Quote:
It has come to our attention that MSI Customer Support has regrettably misinformed an MSI customer with regards to potential support for next-gen AMD CPUs on the MSI X370 XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM motherboard.
i love the way TPU is excusing their lazy journalism.

but still:

I mean, it's on par for pretty much all journalism these days.

At least they updated the comment so that it isn't regrettable that they got the right info, thus vitriolic click bait is gone.

The article was accurate based on the information he had at the time. I don't particularly care for this approach but it seems to be an acceped one. I would prefer the writers to seek out more information but that might not be what they are getting paid to do. Journalism doesn't have to involve investigation, even though it seems like it should.

"early unconfirmed reports show that a user has been told by MSI support his product won't be supported"


so hard to add, but hey they're only following the amazing example set by national and international media sources


here's the difference - It makes sense to release early (but possibly wrong) reports on earth shattering stuff like Notre burning to the ground. however, doing the same for tech media just shows how these folks rely on twitter & reddit for their "news" instead of trying to actually fact check before rushing to judgement.

HOWEVER - we're in a world where the truth doesn't matter, just number of clicks generated before releasing the actual story that includes zero sensationalism.

Honestly though, it seems a slightly more cautious and careful approach would actually earn you more respect & views.

first release - this is possibly happening, but no sauce from MSI yet
update release - this in from MSI, no its not true the world is burning to the ground, so glad we didn't jump to conclusions!

double clix, less "these morons suck at reporting" commentary.

Locked due to evidence that it was a false rumor.
