Isn't it pretty much confirmed at this point that Vermeer is slated for an "end of 2020" release? If that falls within Q3, it definitely isn't July - I would be very surprised even if we saw Vermeer launched in September. AMD's desktop CPU release cadence so far has been a year and a few months, so unless Zen 3 is arriving significantly faster than previous generations it won't be here until fall at the earliest, though late fall or "holiday" is more likely IMO. Thus I would assume desktop Renoir arrives first, possibly alongside (or more likely during the slow trickle out of) B550.
