Renders of AMD's next-generation AM5 processor socket, which will be the standard for AMD desktop processors in 2022, have been published by ExecutableFix. The images show a retaining socket similar to Intel's standard LGA (Land Grid Array) socket.

The AMD AM5 platform will bring a host of new features and will also carry the latest LGA socket 1718, designed to support Ryzen's next generation desktop CPU. Images of this new socket were posted by the same website that was also the first to reveal the integrated heatsink (IHS) and package design of the Zen 4 equipped desktop CPUs (dubbed by the company 'Raphael') to be launched in 2022.

Looking at the screenshots, we can see that the retention design for socket AM5 'LGA 1718' is very similar to existing Intel CPU sockets. The socket has a single latch and the days of worrying about pins under your precious CPUs are gone. The next generation Ryzen CPUs will have a land grid array package and the pins will be presented in the socket itself that will make contact with the LGA pads under the processor.

As the screenshots reveal, AMD Ryzen 'Raphael' Desktop CPUs will have a perfect square shape (45x45mm), but will come with a very robust integrated heatsink (IHS). The specific reasoning behind this is so dense that it's unknown to everyone, but it could be to balance the thermal load across multiple chips or some entirely different purpose. The sides are similar to the IHS featured on the Intel Core-X line of HEDT CPUs.

We can't tell if the two partitions on either side are cutouts or mere reflections from the render, but in case they are cutouts, we can expect that the thermal solution was designed to release air, but that would mean that hot air would be blown into the VRM circuitry. motherboards or it would be trapped inside this central chamber. Without knowing this information, it remains to wait and see the final chip design. Keeping in mind that this is an unofficial image, so the final design could end up very different.

About AMD's 'Raphael' Ryzen 'Zen 4' Desktop Processors and AMD Socket AM5

AMD Ryzen processors for next-generation desktops are based on Zen 4 and will be code-named 'Raphael' and will replace Zen 5000-based Ryzen 3,0 Desktop CPUs code-named 'Vermeer'. From the information we currently have, the 'Raphael' processors will be based on the 4nm Zen 5 core architecture and will feature 6nm I/O arrays in a chip design. AMD has suggested increasing the core count of their next-gen standard desktop CPUs, so we can expect a slight jump from the current maximum of 16 cores and 32 threads.

It is rumored that the new Zen 4 architecture offers up to 25% IPC gain over the Zen 3 and reaches clock speeds of around 5 GHz. According to AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su in an interview given to Anandtech:

'Mark, Mike and the teams did a phenomenal job. We're as good as we are with the product today, but with our ambitious scripts, we're focusing on Zen 4 and Zen 5 to be extremely competitive.

'There will be more top scores in the future – I wouldn't say those are the limits! It will come as we scale the rest of the system. '

Rick Bergman EVP of AMD, in a statement to the website The Street, talked about the next generation Zen 4 cores of AMD Ryzen processors:

Question: How much of the performance gains delivered by AMD's Zen 4 CPUs, which are expected to use a 5nm TSMC process and may arrive in early 2022, will come from instruction gains per clock (IPC) as opposed to core count and increases of clock speed.

Bergman: “[Given] the maturity of the x86 architecture now, the answer should be, more or less, all of the above. If you looked at our Zen 3 white paper, it was this long list of things we did to get 19% [IPC gain]. Zen 4 will have a similar long list of things, where you look at everything from caches to branch prediction, [to] the number of ports in the execution pipeline. Everything is scrutinized to extract more performance.

"Of course, the [manufacturing] process opens an additional door so that we can [get] better performance per watt and so on, and we'll take advantage of that as well.”

At the moment, there is no more official information about these processors, so we can only wait for their release. Leave in the comments what you think about this new line and what your expectations are for this release. Take the opportunity to read more about Technology on our website.
