During a recently interview with PC World, AMD employees have revealed some details on the AM5 platform for next-gen CPUs. AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su confirmed that AMD has plans to keep the AM5 platform as long-loved as AM4. And AMD also confirmed that AM4 coolers will be compatible with future AM5 CPUs.
“Well, we’ve been extremely pleased with how AM4 has evolved….we said we would keep that socket for a long time and we have. We continue to believe that it has been good for the community and frankly, it’s been good for us as well. As we bring things along, it was time to do a socket transition for the new I/O in the new technology, but I think strategy-wise, it should be similar. I don’t have an exact number of years but I would say that you should expect that AM5 will be a long-lived platform as AM4 has been. I think we’re expecting AM4 to stay in the marketplace for quite some years and it will be sort of an overlapping type of thing.”
