In a shock email late on Friday, AMD has released a statement to clarify the situation it is in with the manufacturing of its latest Ryzen processors. And, depending on what kind of a processor you're after, it's both a good and bad announcement. The downside? AMD is delaying its release of the 16 core Ryzen 9 3950X.
