AMD Raphael with Zen4 core gets a new and IHS

ExecutableFix continues to deliver AMD AM5 leaks.

The leaker had already revealed that AMD Ryzen processors codenamed “Raphael” will land on an AM5 socket, which surprisingly will be an LGA design. This means that the pins on the Zen4 desktop processors will be replaced with pads, essentially copying Ryzen Threadripper and Intel desktop processors approach. Motherboard vendors that we spoke with are enthusiastic about this change for various reasons.

Today ExecuFix has revealed the futuristic CPU design for the Raphael. The integrated heat spreader (IHS) will not have a uniform shape, on the contrary, each side will have two cutouts. However, it is unclear why has AMD changed the IHS design this much.

The same leaker earlier revealed the bottom design of the AM5 package, which would retain the size of AM4 CPUs: 40x40mm. The Zen4 CPU package would only be slightly smaller than Alder Lake (1600 mm2 vs 1687 mm2).

AMD CPUs for AM5 socket would allegedly support dual-channel DDR5 memory as well as PCIe Gen4.0. This means that there would no Gen5 support and that would remain exclusive to Alder Lake-S, at least for the time being. The Raphael CPUs will have 28 PCIe lanes, which is an upgrade of 4 compared to Zen3 CPUs. At this time, AMD is planning 120W CPUs for this socket, but there are allegedly plans for 170W SKUs as well.

At this moment AMD Raphael is rumored to launch in the fourth quarter of 2022.
