Sure, but even you should agree that there is a difference between "later this year" (which AMD said regarding consumer Zen 3 chips) and "late this year" (which AMD said for Milan), and summarizing both as "late this year" is reducing the amount of information which may turn out to be wrong.When a business is talking about a release date in vague terms the best practice is to assume the very latest possible date within the time span given, as businesses talk in CYA language. Which is why "later this year" should be read as "before 2021 (up to and including Dec. 31st 2020)". If it were Q3 they would say Q3, as that would make investors happy and drive up stock prices. Now, December 31st is unlikely due to it missing holiday sales, but late November or early December for Zen 3 hitting stores? Wouldn't surprise me even slightly.
You mean AT has insider info that Milan and Vermeer launch at the same time? Because that's what a conflation of both however fuzzy dates implies.I assumed they were using a bit of insider info without specifically saying so.
