No she didn't, because that's an impossible blanket statement, due to how much variables are involved between all the different motherboard manufacturers.
Just because you've come to your own conclusions, doesn't mean AMD should be held accountable for that, you've set yourself up for disappointment , not AMD.
And no I'm not that far out of the know, I payed plenty of attention to the industry, and made my predictions with much thought involved, hence why I didn't buy a crap MSI motherboard, and bought a Asus CH7 Wifi, with the best VRM on the market, and I'll be dropping whatever the best 3000 series offering there is available, straight into my board without any issues...so maybe you should take your own advice next time, sunshine.
Large amounts of stupidity in this post here.
Lisa at 6:28 "3rd Gen Ryzen will run on the same AM4 desktop infrastructure, and for all of you that are on Ryzen today, really simple upgrade. Drop in for users."
That almost sounds to me like a blanket statement.
I won't even bother linking dozens of other articles where they state backwards compatibility.
The fact that you didn't even know that they had this stance shows me you are indeed completely out of the know. You have zero clue what your talking about, and are just spewing non sense.
"Just because you've come to your own conclusions, doesn't mean AMD should be held accountable for that, you've set yourself up for disappointment , not AMD."
So AMD explicitly states AM4 will continue to be supported, and boards will be future compatible with future processors, so I buy the newest, latest X470 board, and that was setting myself up for disappointment? I came to my own conclusion by trusting what directly came from their mouths? What an idiotic statement.
And lastly, attacking my choice of motherboard, calling it junk, then boasting how great yours is shows a petty and childlike mentality if you ask me. Pretty weak stuff there.
