    Gotta love the vibe, check the photos after the break. It seems that an OEM or something leaked pictures of multiple  12-unit trays of AMD Ryzen processors....

    Straight long pins of AMD cpus kinda scares me.

    Stupid question, but why they don't design more flat design like Intel CPU?

    The pins are expensive and the only reason that intel makes pins on boards is to transfer this expense to the board makers. So I don't see a reason why pins on CPU are somehow a bad thing.

    I find myself asking the same question. After a quick bit of googling it would appear that LGA allows for higher densities of contacts between the motherboard and the CPU. I wouldn't be surprised if cost is also a factor, considering AMD are needing to reap in as much profit as humanely possible with Ryzen.

    All the pieces are coming together. Lets hope this will be a successful launch for AMD and Ryzen.

    I got almost all my parts for my new Ryzen built , just need the motherboard and cpu. My H2O loop is ready for it :)

    Why not? I'd rather straighten these up than the motherboard ones. LGA sockets have a 15 time insertion limit, PGA sockets don't. The only one gaining from that is Intel, the only ones losing are the motherboard manufacturers.

    What is wrong with pins on the CPU? With LGA you're much more at risk of purchasing a damaged motherboard than you are with a PGA socket. I've heard and had friends tell me many stories where they've had a brand new motherboard be useless due to bent pins on the socket.

    Intel fanboy confirmed!
    My only issue with PGA is that you can (I have twice with my 940BE (may it rest in peace)) pull the CPU out of the socket without "releasing" it from the socket when removing the heatsink.

    BTW fixing a bent pin on a LGA is not that scary (as long as you didn't install the CPU and clamp it wit a bent pin) always check an LGA socket.

    Ugghh! Logic flies completely out the window with comments like these.

    I've been using Intel CPU's since 2006 and for 8 years prior to that I had been using AMD CPU's. In my experience I would rather have the more sturdier pins found on AMD CPU's than the weak spring based pins found in Intel CPU sockets. I dont know how many times I have seen those pins get damaged and the pain involved in straightening them.

    Bring on AMD! I will have no problems switching camps again if AMD can really deliver on the hype surrounding these new CPU's.

    For all the people complaining about pins on a cpu, have we forgotten about the Socket 478 and Pentium 4? Those had pins.

    Also, I've had people ruin their entire CPU/MOBO because they slightly bent a pin on an intel mobo. Pins = hard to mess up.
