AMD’s AM5 platform will have several new features, especially DDR5 memory, but no PCIe 5.0.
AMD AM5 “Raphael” would not support the PCIe 5.0 interface
Intel confirmed that its upcoming 12th-generation Core series, called ” Alder Lake,” will be the first to support the PCIe 5.0 interface and do it with Alder Lake and the new LGA 1700-socket motherboards later this year.
According to a leak, AMD Ryzen “Raphael” processors will not support the PCIe 5.0 interface. The red company has no plans to move to PCIe 5.0 in 2022.
The AMD AM5 chipset offers a 16+4+4 PCIe 4.0 lane configuration, which ensures that high-end graphics, high-speed NVMe drives, and USB4 devices can be connected simultaneously. This means that more PCIe 4.0 lanes will be available.
Another new feature we see in this leak is confirmation of support for dual-channel DDR5 memory, although there is no indication of its support speeds.
Also mentioned is support for DisplayPort 2.0 on the AMD AM5 platform, which will be combined with an additional 4 PCIe 4.0 lanes via a USB 4 controller.
Last but not least, this generation of CPUs will be the first to integrate GPUs, except for the usual classic APUs.
Raphael” processors will power the AMD Ryzen 7000 series, which is part of the Zen 4 architecture.
