AMD Zen4 delidded

TechPowerUP reports that an unnamed overclocker has already been able to delid the upcoming AMD Zen4 CPU. 

The site reports that the photograph was more than likely not meant to be shared outside of the closed group, thus the overclocker is not named and no links to the original source are provided.

The new integrated heatspreader (IHS) is a true challenge for delidding. The capacitors located around the CPU already make this process very complicated not to mention the fact that both the I/O and chiplets are soldered. At least the IHS appears to be glued to the package in only a few (7?) spots. However, there is no information on whether the CPU still works after this delidding attempt.

The Ryzen 7000 series are to feature two chiplet design, each carrying up to eight Zen4 cores. The new I/O die now made in 6 nm process technology will feature integrated RDNA2 graphics. The new Ryzen series for desktop are officially launching this fall.
