March 2, 2017 is the official AMD Ryzen CPU launch date. AMD announced it on their Twitter account this morning along with this video. Quick notes that I took are that the Ryzen CPU lineup has a 52% IPC increase and the Ryzen 7 1700x beats the 6800K by 39% in Cinebench multithreaded mode. I'm still watching the video.

"On March 2, enthusiasts and gamers around the world will experience ‘Zen’" - Dr. Lisa Su, who has more on Ryzen.
