ASUS' All-in-One CPU Liquid Coolers are all ready for AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors and AM5 socket
ASUS has confirmed that their All-in-One (AIO) CPU liquid coolers are all ready for AMD's upcoming AM5 (LGA1718) CPU socket, which is due to launch later this year alongside the company's Ryzen 7000 series processors.
With socket AM5 comes some major changes for AMD, moving to an entirely new socket design, DDR5 memory, and PCIe 5.0 connectivity. AMD's 600-series AM5 motherboards will be next-generation in every respect, with these motherboards lacking support for AMD's older AM4 compatible processors and DDR4 memory modules.
Thankfully, AMD has designed their AM5 CPU socket to support many AM4 compatible CPU coolers without compatibility issues. This includes ASUS' ROG and TUF Gaming series CPU coolers, which can support AMD's socket AM5 without any changes to its mounting system. These coolers will support AM5 out of the box.
AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors will launch on socket AM5 with new Zen 4 CPU cores and core clock speeds that a significantly higher than today's Ryzen 5000 series CPUs. Between Zen 4's architectural improvements, DDR5 memory support, and Ryzen 7000's expected clock speed increases, AMD's next-generation CPUs are expected to deliver significant performance improvements over their current-generation counterparts.
Below are the ASUS ROG/TUF Gaming CPU coolers that are confirmed to be Socket AM5 ready.
