AMD just formally announced its 4 new CPUs for Zen 4, their prices, and their release date. Now, we’re looking at a delidded Ryzen 7000 CPU to learn more about the very unique IHS (Integrated Heat Spreader) design with the ”spider leg” shape. In this quick video, we’ll talk about why AMD made these design decisions, how CPUs are soldered, why gold is used, and more.
