Dr. Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, recently confirmed that AMD will keep the AM5 platform for as long as it has kept AM4, at least the company has plans to do that. The platform has been there for a while; the company has made some changes throughout the years to support faster memory or new PCI-Express standards. At the moment, it is impossible to determine the future of AM5. Anyways, one thing is for sure, the team which developed Ryzen has learned quite a lot, so we hope that there won’t be issues that we have seen previously in future iterations.

Here is what AMD folks have revealed about AM5

Recently, we came across an interview of Robert Hallock and Frank Azor. In the interview, both these folks were asked about AMD AM5 platform design. The interviewer also asked why AM5 made move to LGA, rather than going for another PGA processor. In the reply, Hallock said that LGA has an ideal pin density to support next-gen connectivity and interfaces. He further added that modern platforms need more connections with CPU and in that aspect, PGA CPUs are not up to the mark.

Moreover, AMD is also planning on using a Zen4 desktop integrated heat spreader design. It will allow more capacitors, which otherwise would have to be installed on another side of the processor. Zen4 design has made it possible for AMD to put more pads on the bottom of the processor. It further allows small package sizes as AM4 processors. That’s the main reason, why AM4 coolers are compatible with future AM5 CPUs.

Besides that, we are not sure about other important details, including power requirements, among other things.
