MSI has released a video tutorial on how to install the processor in socket AM5 and showed an example of the 16-core Ryzen 7000

MSI has posted a video showing how to install Ryzen 7000 series processors on a Socket AM5 motherboard. The video showed a technical sample of a new generation 16-core flagship chip. According to VideoCardz, such a chip was already found in the database of the distributed computer network [email protected] in January of this year.

The Ryzen 7000 engineering sample shown in the MSI video is labeled 100-000000665. The existence of the same sample became known earlier this year. Then the following design examples of AMD desktop processors of the new generation were found in the database of the distributed computer network [email protected]:

  • AMD Eng Example: 100-000000665-21_N [Family 25 Model 96 Stepping 0] – 16 cores / 32 threads;
  • AMD Eng Example: 100-000000666-21_N [Family 25 Model 96 Stepping 0] – 8 cores / 16 threads.

Both were entered into the database between December 21 and 24, 2021. In other words, these are very early design patterns.

The MSI video shows that Sample 665 was actually produced in 2021.

As for the MSI instructions for installing the Ryzen 7000 processor in the Socket AM5 socket, this process is nowhere easier and is not much different from installing Intel processors. However, for fans of AMD chips who have never encountered processors in the LGA design, the guide may be useful.

For ease of installation, AMD has added special cutouts to the chip’s textolite to indicate which side to place the processor in the socket. The AM5 processor socket itself has special protrusions that correspond to the notches on the chip. Check out the Ryzen 7000 installation video below.

It is worth noting that you need to be very careful when installing chips in LGA connectors. Still, straightening out accidentally bent legs on the processor, as was the case with the previous Ryzen and not only, is much easier than in an LGA processor socket.
