No AMD Zen-based laptops until second half of 2017

A couple of months from now the eyes of the entire tech world will be on AMD as the launch of the long-awaited Zen architecture may be the final make-it-or-break-it moment. Will the company be able to successfully relaunch itself into the x86 processor market, or will it continue to wither away into irrelevance. That's the question that will be answered with the launch of the Summit Ridge Zen processors in early 2017.

Those wishing to get their hands on a laptop with Zen will need to wait a bit longer though, there are not a lot of details but a WCCF Tech report claims the first Zen-based laptops will hit shelves sometime in the second half of 2017:
AMD has been more or less out of the running for notebook processors since Steamroller first came out. All this, however, stands to change with the introduction of its Zen based x86 processors. Talking to sources familiar with the matter, we were told that Zen equipped notebooks will hit the shelves sometime in 2H 2017. This is going to open up new sources of income for the chipmaker and also signify its entry back into the mainstream x86 market in full force.
