Elusive B550 chipset, will it really launch this year?

"AMD's B550 chipset has been rescheduled a lot, but some variant of "B550" already exists on the market: B550A motherboards, like the ASRock B550AM Gaming in OEM PCs. "

He talks so fast... but still takes so long to get to wherever he was going to get to when I started watching the video which has so many words whipping past with so little information content that I had to stop watching, take a deep breath and a long walk in the non-caffeinated section of the tech news department.

They're just delaying the retail release until Zen 3. Until then, they can just continue to ride the high margins of z570 (and obviously, they already have OEM boards.)

This is little AMD we're talking about: they don't release a new retail chipset without a new CPU to provide momentum.
