Alleged specifications of AMD AM5 emerge: slightly bigger than Intels counterpart and DDR5

From the looks of things AMD will be moving to a new processor package next year, let's assume this AM5. On Twitter some info was shared and it looks to become at 1718 pin design based on a line-grid array or LGA much like intel uses (no pins anymore).


Socket AM5 would also be a notch bigger. The chips are expected to offer support for dual-channel ddr5 and, of course, PCIe 4.0. Yes, Ryzen seems to be sticking with PCIe 4.0. It was expected that the Raphael and Rembrandt generations would already use PCIe 5.0 for AM5.


This could also entail motherboards based on a 600 series chipset. The information provider is ExecutableFix, who built a reputation sharing pretty correct info like this. However, take it with a grain of salt as nothing has been confirmed even remotely.



Was hoping am4 would get at least one more cpu upgrade but seems unlikely now.

Well we all knew AM5 was going to happen with the advent of DDR5. With us so close to the next gen platforms, this is why I wont upgrade my current system for a good while the 5950X will see me through until the next build. Though im waiting a couple of generations before leaping to the DDR5 platform, whether that be AMD or Intel who knows.
