    3rd time is a charm! Impressed at the solder and inner gold plating, that'll make for a fantastic thermal transfer from die to casing for the coolers

    AMD are back with a bang fair play to them. They really went the extra mile with the manufacturing quality on the Ryzen CPUs

    I'm guessing that he gets them for free from AMD in return for the publicity.

    This all looks very promising and further reduces the likelihood that my next CPU could be Intel.

    Are we sure these aren't just cherry picked samples? It's not uncommon for manufacturers to send "people with influence" higher quality components for advertising purposes. They all do it.

    Seems unlikely: can you imagine the uproar when people found out? The backlash if they'd sent special soldered samples for delidding when retail CPUs used ordinary TIM would be horrific...

    The golds just used as a whetting agent as indium doesn't bond very well to silicon or nickle.

    EDIT: Out of curiosity can anyone remember when Intel switched from solder to paste, as in what the size of the die was and how that size compares to Ryzen 4 core die size.

    Ivy Bridge - the i7 3770k used paste rather than solder. It had a ~ 160mm2 die. The Sandy Bridge i7 2600k had a ~ 210mm2 die. Coincidentally, ~210mm2 is the current estimate for 8 Core Ryzen...

    Re: Overclocker der8auer delids AMD Ryzen CPU to reveal solder TIM

    Going on the video though it looks like they used two separate indium solder pads (one for each 4 core block) so would that make each 4 core Ryzen die 105mm2, apologies if that's wrong, I'm useless at maths. If so does that mean AMD are using indium solder on smaller dies than Intel used to, does it mean they're confident that it won't experience stress induced problems, maybe even gotten around those problems with some wizz bang new method.

    With all of the chipset functions excluding graphics too.

    That hints a 4C/8T Ryzen with a largish IGP will be around the same size.
