Series loser, ExecutableFix, has returned to the Twittersphere with a look at what AMD has aligned its Zen 4 consumer chips. Along with a couple of details on what the & # 39; Raphael & # 39; chip is. of AMD, also includes an idea of its appearance: like Intel before, AMD moves to a ground network (LGA) network instead of the pin array network (PGA) used on its AM4 platform.
Let's continue! Raphael is the first Zen 4 consumer chip and here you have a first look at Raphael – AM5 socket – DDR5 (without DDR4) – 28 PCIe 4.0 lanes (+4 compared to Zen 3) – 120 W TDP also possible 170 W pic) pic.twitter.com / 5DcTmjdqNdMay 25, 2021
This is obviously not a picture of AMD's next major chip, but something ExecutableFix has prepared to show what we will receive when Zen 4 falls.
If you’ve ever changed an Intel chip, this is a design you should be familiar with. AMD has used LGA designs with its Threadripper and EPYC chips before, so we have a good idea of how it will work.
There are also a few more pinouts than the AM4 socket. The AM4 has 1,331, while the AM5 can reach 1,718.
The few specifications that come along with the image are also fascinating. The idea that Raphael will exclusively offer support for DDR5 seems a bit narrow, simply because prices can be prohibitive for the new memory standard for quite some time; for comparison, Intel’s Alder Lake is expected to support both memory standards. reason.
Zen 4 shouldn’t be beaten until the fall of 2022 and a lot can happen from there until then.
