AMD Ryzen 5000 “Zen 3” CPU product line has been released, most people have even got the physical chip, but what is more interesting is the Vermeer. The core architecture of Zen 3 is incredible and has a lot of IPC improvements. We only saw the Zen 3 die in AMD’s introduction to Ryzen 5000, but Fritzchens Fritz was the first to provide high-resolution infrared photos of the processor. We have a better understanding of Zen 3 core.

This is not the first infrared photo released by Fritzchens. In fact, all major CPUs/GPUs have been unlocked by him. You can see a lot of high-resolution pictures on his Flickr, and you can also follow on Twitter. He, know when he will release the latest photos. The photo of his die recently released is AMD Ryzen 5000 desktop CPU.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, it has two chip parts, a CCD, and a master IOD. In order to photograph the die, the CPU must be removed from the IHS for demolding. The Ryzen 5000 CPU uses a solder design, which makes it difficult to demold the chip. When Fritz tried to demold the chip, disaster happened. In this process, the entire CCD was ripped off, but most of the silicon wafers are still intact, as is the IOD.

Although the Ryzen 5 5600X had an accident, Locuza, known for drawing CPU/GPU die, complemented the rest of the Ryzen 5000 die and presented the complete die to us. Below you can see the power of Locuza. He drew the entire Zen 3 CCD, and every aspect and area of ​​the chip was accurately mapped out.

Different from the design of the previous generation, each AMD Zen 3 CCD consists of two CCX (Core Complexes), while Zen 3 CCD will consist of one CCX. It will have 8 cores and can operate in single-threaded mode (1T) or dual Running in thread mode (2T), each CCX can run up to 16 threads. Since the chip can accommodate up to two CCDs, the maximum number of cores and threads will reach 16 cores and 32 threads, which is the same as the current flagship AM4 desktop CPU-Ryzen 9 3950X.
