AMD To Launch Ryzen
According to Extreme Tech, details about AMD's Ryzen have been speculated for months, but up to date, AMD has kept quiet about the date when the chip would be launched on the market. It is still uncertain when the core will hit store shelves, but thanks to the latest online leak we do have a maximum date.
AMD appears to be planning to launch the Ryzen processor family at GDC event scheduled to run from Feb. 27 to March 3, courtesy of AMD's own GDC plans. Therefore, tech experts expect that AMD will launch its Ryzen chip at the end of February or the very beginning of March, at most.
Since the online first leak of the GDC session plans, AMD has edited their invitation in order to remove all reference to Ryzen. However, tech experts have already managed to screencap the information.

Tech analysts expect to see more details on the Ryzen cores and markets. In case that the processor indeed begins shipping in the next 6-8 weeks, for those planning an upgrade it might be best to wait to see how AMD and Intel compare.
