AMD to release Ryzen 7000 CPUs on AM5 socket in the second half of 2022

AMD will release new Ryzen processors in the second half of this year with Zen 4 cores, which are made at 5nm. The Ryzen 7000 processors are combined with a new AM5 socket and, like Intel’s sockets, it is a land grid array.

The AM5 platform will get the LGA1718 socket, AMD announced during its CES presentation. CEO Lisa Su showed a demonstration using a Ryzen 7000 processor that would run at 5GHz on all cores. It is not known how many cores the chip in question has.

The Ryzen 7000 processors and associated AM5 platform will support DDR5 memory, as will Intel’s Alder Lake processors. In addition, the platform will receive support for PCIe 5.0. The new Intel processors have that too, but not yet integrated into current chipsets. Whether AMD will do so is unknown.

With the AM4 socket, AMD used a pin grid array. Last year it became clear that AMD would make this switch and the manufacturer is now confirming this. The pins are on the processor. Such CPUs can be placed in a socket without much pressure, but there is a risk of damaging the pins. With LGA sockets, the risk of damaging the processor is lower.
