Rumor: AMD to switch to LGA sockets for AM5 – computer



AMD’s next AM5 platform, which is expected to succeed the AM4 socket, is said to have an LGA socket. Thus, the pins of the next generation of AMD CPU will not be located on the CPU, but rather on the motherboard.

of Information This is from a Twitter user executable, which often shares specific information about undisclosed AMD products. according to The dropout AM5 platform gets one LGAJack with 1718 pins, against 1331 pins with current AM4 processors. Remarkably, the leak mentioned that the AM5 socket same size 40 x 40 mm, although the number of screws has increased.

ExecutableFix also reports that future AM5 consumer processors will receive support for Dual channel DDR5 memory. Support for PCIe 5.0 remains the next generation of Zen 4-based exclusive AMD EPYC processors, meaning early AM5 processors will continue to support PCIe 4.0. Obtaining Future Intel Processors, Alder Lake Rumored to contain PCIe 5.0, as well as DDR5 support.

In addition, the passenger states that the AM5 platform will be offered with the 600 series chipset. The platform is said to be marketed with AMD’s Zen 4 processors, which are produced on TSMC’s 5nm node. AMD’s EPYC Genoa processors are expected next year with Zen 4. It’s unclear when companies will bring their Zen 4 processors to consumers. It should still use Zen 3+ processors this year, but it should use an AM4 socket.

AMD’s alleged move to the LGA was not surprising. The company has been using sockets like these for its server processors for some time. The company has been doing this since the introduction of Socket-F for Opteron processors in 2006. AMD Threadripper and EPYC processors also use LGA sockets.
