No Ryzen Drivers For Windows 7

Remember that rumor the other day about AMD reversin its stance on Windows 7 drivers? Well, it looks as though those rumors were false. The official word from AMD is:

“To achieve the highest confidence in the performance of our AMD Ryzen desktop processors (formerly code-named ‘Summit Ridge’), AMD validated them across two different OS generations, Windows 7 and 10,” AMD said in a statement in response to a question from PCWorld. “However, only support and drivers for Windows 10 will be provided in AMD Ryzen desktop processor production parts.”
