Corsair confirms that their cooling products already support AMD's new AM5 CPU socket, and that optimised DDR5 memory modules are on the horizon
Following AMD's confirmation that they will be revealing their Ryzen 7000 series of Zen 4 processors on August 29th, Corsair has revealed that all of their AM4 compatible CPU coolers are already socket-compatible with AMD's new Ryzen 7000 series processors and AM5 series motherboards.
AMD has designed AM5 to use the same mounting holes as their AM4 socket, allowing existing CPU coolers to be forward compatible with AMD's newest motherboard platform. All current Corsair CPU coolers support AMD's Am5 socket, including their Elite LCD series, their ELITE Capellix series, and their standard Elite series.
In addition to their support for socket AM5, Corsair has also confirmed that they will soon be launching optimised DDR5 memory modules, which will be designed to deliver optimal performance with AMD's new Zen 4 processors. We expect these memory modules to run at optimal frequency ranges for AMD;'s latest Ryzen processors, offering a good balance between pricing, performance, and module capacity.
What follows is Corsair's Press Release regarding its AMD Ryzen 7000 series/AM5 support.
Press Release - CORSAIR Ushers in the New Era of AMD with Support for AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs
CORSAIR (NASDAQ: CRSR), a world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, today announced its readiness for the new AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors and accompanying motherboard chipsets. Featuring all new Zen 4 CPU architecture, AMD Ryzen 7000 Series chips deliver a substantial performance boost over previous-generation processors, and CORSAIR has the components to help support this generational upgrade. Those looking to build a new AMD system can take advantage of the free online CORSAIR PC Builder to help shortlist compatible parts for their new system.
CORSAIR has been working closely with AMD in the lead-up to the AMD Ryzen 7000 Series launch, and has already updated its PC Builder database to include the new processors so that you can curate a parts list for a powerful new AMD PC in minutes. The CORSAIR PC Builder takes your chosen CPU, graphics card, and motherboard and checks them for compatibility against a vast database of PC parts, coming up with a comprehensive list of CORSAIR parts guaranteed to work with your system. From a correctly sized case and appropriate fans, to a PSU rated to power your build and even RGB lighting, the CORSAIR PC Builder takes the guesswork out of building your new Ryzen 7000 Series powered PC. The CORSAIR PC Builder is even able to intelligently optimize the parts selected, so that you don’t overspend or bottleneck your build with a mismatched component.
CORSAIR is also ready for the launch with a wide array of products to support your new CPU. AMD Ryzen 7000 Series utilize the next-generation AM5 socket, which is already compatible with all current CORSAIR all-in-one liquid CPU coolers that support AM4, including the versatile ELITE LCD Series, the ultra-bright ELITE CAPELLIX Series, and the performance-driven RGB ELITE Series. With celebrated CORSAIR cooling, your PC will quietly manage the heat while you reap the benefits of next-generation AMD CPU performance
AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors will support the latest DDR5 performance memory, bringing with it huge improvements in frequency, bandwidth and potential capacity. CORSAIR will be offering a complete range of performance DDR5 memory, specifically optimized and equipped for compatibility with AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors.
