Until now, previous rumors stated that AMD would be launching their new Ryzen 2 processors and 400-series chipsets in February. But the new Pinnacle Ridge architecutre will be expected to launch as optical shrinks of the current-gen Summit Ridge tech, down to the spiffy new 12nm process.

AMD's new Ryzen 2 processors will be built on the same socket AM4 package, and should work with existing 300-series motherboards with BIOS updates from manufacturers. The new 400-series motherboards should support current-gen Ryzen processors out-of-the-box as well as the upcoming Raven Ridge APUs, which 300-series motherboard owners will need an update for.
