Gigabyte admits Ryzen CPU press release was a mistake

Not sure how you do that

Gigabyte has admitted that a statement found in a recent press release announcing the launch of a next generation of Ryzen CPU in 2023 was a mistake.

The press release stated, "Even though these new products are entry-level servers, CPU support does not end here and the AM5 platform is supported until at least 2025."

"The next generation of AMD Ryzen desktop processors that will come out later this year will also be supported on this AM5 platform, so customers who purchase these servers today have the opportunity to upgrade to the Ryzen 7000 series successor."

In an email, Gigabyte spokesperson Liam Quinn confirmed the wording was a mistake,  and that the company “do not know when the Ryzen 7000 successor will be released”, adding it will “comment on the press release to clarify but keep our original wording”.

Ryzen has 16 cores (and 32 threads) compared to Intel’s 24 cores (eight power, 16 efficient and 32 threads) which support ECC, which is useful for business applications (VDI, web hosting etc). If the press release had been correct, more processor cores would enable Ryzen to expand its influence in the entry-level, low-cost server market or high-performance NAS.
