DigiTimes has posted an article covering the probable launch dates of AMD's new CPUs and GPUs as well as Intel's reaction to the release. Not all of these dates are confirmed but it is worth noting as these rumours are often close to those eventually announced. Naples will be the first, with the server chips launching at the end of June but that is just the start. July is the big month for AMD, with the lower end Ryzen 3 chips hitting the market as well as the newly announced 16 core Threadrippers and the X399 chipset. That will also be the month we see Vega's
Founders Frontier Edition graphics cards arrive.
Intel's Basin Falls platform; Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X along with the associated X299 chipset are still scheduled for Computex reveal and a late June or early August release. Coffee Lake is getting pushed ahead however, it's launch has been moved up to late August instead of the beginning of next year.
Even with Intel's counters, AMD's balance sheet is likely to be looking better and better as the year goes on which is great news for everyone … except perhaps Intel and NVIDIA.
"Demand for AMD's Ryzen 7- and Ryzen 5-series CPU products has continued rising, which may allow the chipmaker to narrow its losses to below US$50 million for the second quarter of 2017. With Intel also rumored to pay licensing fees to AMD for its GPUs, some market watchers believe AMD may turn profitable in the second quarter or in the third."
