AMD良心！7000系CPU散热器可兼容现有平台散热器，苏姿丰确认：未来几代CPU散热器兼容AMD conscience! 7000 series CPU coolers are compatible with existing platform coolers, Su Zifeng confirmed: future generations of CPU coolers are compatible with CES 2022, AMD briefly announced Zen4, consumer-grade Ryzen 7000 series processors will be launched in the second half of the year, using a new AM5 interface (LGA1718 slot), supports DDR5 and PCIe 5.0, etc. Obviously, new motherboards are needed to light up the Ryzen 7000, but AMD still seems to be looking for ways to save old users money.
When talking to the media, AMD technical marketing director Robert Hallock confirmed that the AM4-era cooler can still be used on the AM5 platform.
Although the cost of radiators is usually not high, the AMD team’s willingness to think about users should be worthy of recognition. Besides, AM4 came out as early as 2016 with the seventh-generation APU. It has been 6 years and there must be a lot of users in stock. However, the compatibility of the radiator is not 100% interoperable, and it has to wait for AMD’s final guidance document.
Recently, the CES 2022 Consumer Electronics Show was officially held, and PC processor giant AMD released the Ryzen 6000 series CPU. To everyone’s surprise, the Ryzen 6000 series is still the AM4 interface. AMD’s original promise was that the AM4 interface will continue to be used until 2020. As a result, the AM4 interface is still in use until 2022.
Open Tencent News to see more pictures> In an interview, AMD ECO Su Zifeng confirmed that the Ryzen 7000 series will be replaced with the AM5 interface, the AM5 interface will last as long as the AM4 interface, and the Ryzen processor using the AM5 interface will be used. , motherboard, still compatible with the current radiator.
AMD has not changed the interface for a long time. When users upgrade the CPU, the motherboard and radiator matching the CPU do not need to be replaced, which can save a lot of money. When the Ryzen 5000 series went on sale, many manufacturers upgraded the BIOS of the 300 series motherboards so that they could support the Ryzen 5000 series. Of course, to get all the performance of the new CPU, you still need a new motherboard.
However, the AM4 interface uses a PGA package, there are slots on the motherboard, and the CPU has pins. This design can improve the stability of the CPU and the performance under high load conditions, but the power consumption is relatively high, and the pins are easy to remove and plug. touch crooked. Today, when the CPU energy consumption ratio is getting higher and higher, the advantages of PGA packaging are no longer obvious, and consumers are more looking forward to AMD’s early launch of LGA packaging interfaces.
The AM5 interface will be packaged in LGA, replacing pins with contacts. The density of contacts is much greater than that of pins, which can meet the needs of DDR5 and PCIE 5.0. When replacing the CPU, there is no need to worry about hurting the pins of the CPU. If you plan to sell the CPU and motherboard, you can also sell it for a good price.
Since its release in 2016, the life cycle of the AM4 interface is as high as 6 years. Su Zifeng said that the AM5 interface will exist for a long time like the AM4. AMD CPUs in the next few years will use the same interface, and the cost of replacing the CPU for AMD users will be greatly reduced. This solution may attract many users to choose AMD.
The release time of the Ryzen 7000 series has not yet been determined, but it must be within this year. The positioning of the Ryzen 6000 series is close to that of the 11th-generation Core. It can only be regarded as a transition product. . As for whether to buy the Ryzen 6000 series or continue to wait for the Ryzen 7000 series, Xiaolei believes that the CPU does have excess performance. If there is a need, just buy it now, and there is no need to wait for the next generation of Ryzen.
CES 2022上，AMD简单预告了Zen4，消费级锐龙7000系列处理器将在下半年推出，采用全新AM5接口（LGA1718插槽），支持DDR5及PCIe 5.0等。显然，点亮锐龙7000需要新的主板，但AMD似乎还在想方设法替老用户省钱。
