Haven't heard anything, although I believe it's only been ~3 weeks in the UK.

Out of curiosity, is there any specific reason you need the MAX? Chances are, you'll pay a premium over the base B450 Tomahawk, and you can upgrade the BIOS without a compatible CPU...?
 
Barty1884 Thank you for your response. I want the Max for the 32MB (256mb) BIOS size. It's already known that compromises were made with their previous non-Max BIOS': certain APUs not being compatible, and storage RAID functionality possibly being removed, due to the limited 16MB (128mb) BIOS size. All of this makes me wonder what compromises have been made, that aren't published. Also, what compromises will MSI have to make when Zen 2+ is released next year? I don't know, but I wouldn't want to be in that poor of a position.

That's fair - however actual compromises should be strictly as stated.
Remember, only the AM4 socket was promised through 2020 - so it could be entirely possible that 2020 chips are not compatible. Unlikely, but technically possible.
