Since Intel Alder Lak processors have proven to be practically more powerful than competing Ryzen processors, AMD engineers have honestly rolled up their sleeves. Namely, they began the active development of Ryzen 7000 Mobile processors, which will be intended primarily for laptops. The most powerful processor in the new family will recalculate data with up to 16 powerful processor cores.
AMD Ryzen 7000 family processors will support, among other things, both DDR5 system memory and the PCI Express 4.0 data bus. Unfortunately, newcomers will not be compatible with existing solutions, as they will be equipped with a completely new base. This AM5 socket will replace the current AM4 socket. The latter has become completely unsuitable or obsolete for modern challenges.
The AM5 socket is actually an LGA socket with 1718 “connectors”. This will provide a more stable connection between the motherboard and the processor. This is expected to bring greater capacity. Of course, the new socket will also provide future support for the PCIe 5.0 high-speed data bus. At AMD, they guarantee the new base will stay in use for at least five years, which means it won’t get old fashioned quickly. In addition, it is also compatible with cooling systems made for the AM4 base, making the transition to it easier.
