AMD Zen CPUs Use PGA Mounting System on AM4 Motherboards
When AMD Zen CPUs were shown at Computex recently, people complained that they did not get to see the back of the CPU. This meant that they did not know what kind of mounting system the new AMD Zen CPUs would adopt. But that was then and this is now. Jagatreview published some pictures of the rear end of the Zen based CPUs and it is clear from the pictures that AMD Zen CPUs use PGA mounting system on AM4 motherboards.
These new AMD CPUs will come with up to 8 cores and 16 threads making them 40% better in terms of instructions per clock. These CPUs will be more powerful than the previous offering by AMD and will allow them to compete with Intel products. Team red fans have been wanting this to happen for a while now. It is good to see AMD getting back into the processor game with their new AMD Zen CPUs.
AMD Zen on AM4 motherboards will allow the use of DDR4 memory, this will allow Zen CPUs to use faster memory. With a greater number of cores in their new CPUs, the company is also looking to target the server market as well. But before any of that, AMD Zen will launch for the desktop first so consumers will get an idea of the product first hand. Consumers will be able to test the new series of AMD CPUs later this year.
Though the dates of the Zen based CPU release are not out yet, Lisa Su, AMD’s CEO has said that the new CPUs will be sampled to partners in the upcoming weeks and that a larger sampling of the products will be done soon after that.
We are really excited about AMD and their new line of CPUs and we wish the company the best of luck and hope that all goes well. The fans of the red team do not want to be disappointed again.
