I'm surprised they're doing this. I feel like it's risky when they're in a good position financially. That said, maybe they're worried less people will buy Zen 3 if they don't support the 400 series chipset.

On another point, didn't they say older motherboards would be supported up until 2020? Technically you could argue that they have done. Zen 2 came out last year, but we're in 2020 and Zen 2 chips are supported on all motherboards. It's like when they post a roadmap of new products. They'll say Q2 2021, which we start hoping means something like August or September, except it gets released on December 31st. They didn't lie or backtrack, but they certainly manipulated the truth.

Yeah I think they could have already have claimed to support the boards until 2020, given that there are new processors launching in June/July 2020 that all these boards already support.

My guess is that motherboard vendors leant on AMD. The 'community' just thinks that they did this with people power.

MSI had made some very open ended claims and probably didn't want to be left holding the bag.
