AMD Ryzen Initial Shipments to Eclipse One Million

The initial shipments of AMD Ryzen CPUs is supposed to exceed one million units. MSI has created 15 new motherboards designs for the new AMD lineup and Asustek has 10 - 11 boards coming. These are just a part of the 80+ new boards expected to be available for the AMD 1800x, 1700x and 1700 processors. With this amount of confidence being shown by the motherboard manufacturers and AMD, it's really hard to keep my finger off the pre-order button. Must wait for benchmarks...
