    sooooo i read it was supposed to launch kinda early in march but its the 22nd now and i haven't really heard anything except for the new Athlon 880k and A10-7890k being released...

    Better a bit delay instead of getting faulty Hardware! Or am I wrong?

    i cannot see it being faulty, like all things, it takes as long as it takes. although i have read that the boards 'are' coming at the end of march, i have not read anything as to when the am4 cpus/apus are coming, and what they are. am4 cpus/apus are possibly bristol ridge(excavator core) but who knows, there is nothing concrete yet. hopefully when the boards come out, cpus/apus will not be far behind and if they are excavator core(the new 880k is excavator(?)), then they seem somewhat better than kaveri/godavari.

    new 16.3.2 chipset driver package is out today.

    to quote the release notes for the usb3 drivers

    'AMD USB 3.0 drivers for Hudson-3/Bolton/Kabini/Mullins/Carrizo/Bristol/Stoney family chipsets'

    Bristol, Stoney, bristol ridge and stone(y?) ridge?
