UPDATE: During the conference call, AMD CEO Lisa Su confirmed Ryzen will have widespread system and channel availability on day one.

Together with its fourth-quarter financial results, AMD officially confirmed the launch date of its first Zen-based processors.

AMD reveals the first Ryzen desktop processors are expected to ship in early March 2017. A leak from earlier this month pointed to a launch around GDC 2017 (February 27 - March 3) so this will be the likely launch venue.

The company also added that Naples, the server variant of Zen, is on track for availability in Q2 2017, and that Vega is also still on track for Q2 2017.
