Socket sWRX8 is a microprocessor socket designed by AMD for workstation versions of their third and fourth generation Ryzen Threadripper processors, the successor to Socket TR4. Contemporary mainstream desktop, HEDT, and server processors use Socket AM4, sTRX4, and SP3 respectively.

Socket sWRX8 is mechanically identical to Socket SP3 and the sockets TR4 and sTRX4 also derived from it. Electrically it differs minimally from Socket SP3 as well, in particular sWRX8 processors support UDIMMs in addition to RDIMMs, however this infrastructure is restricted to single socket systems with a maximum of one DIMM per memory channel. TR4 and sTRX4 processors support only UDIMMs on up to four memory channels, but up to two DIMMs per channel like Socket SP3, and omit four of eight PCIe interfaces present on Socket SP3 and sWRX8.

TR4 and sTRX4 processors are not supported on Socket sWRX8 or vice versa. If SP3 processors are compatible with sWRX8 platforms or vice versa, given suitable memory and firmware, is unclear.

Overview[edit]

Socket sWRX8 is a zero insertion force, screw actuated, surface-mount land grid array socket for use with a 4094-contact, 1.00 mm × 0.87 mm interstitial pitch, organic land grid array CPU package.

This single socket client infrastructure supports eight channels of 72-bit DDR4 memory with a maximum of one DIMM per channel, either UDIMMs or RDIMMs, eight 16-lane PCIe Gen 4 I/O links, four USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, and up to 32 SATA Gen 3 ports. Due to the large number of high speed signals 12-layer motherboards are required, 14 layers recommended.

The following AMD processor families use Socket sWRX8:

CPU Family Microarch. Process Products
Type 1 Family 17h Models 30h–3Fh Zen 2 7 nm & 12 nm Ryzen Threadripper 3900 "Castle Peak" (Model 31h)
Type 2 Family 19h Models 00h–0Fh Zen 3 7 nm & 12 nm(?) Ryzen Threadripper 5900 "Chagall" (Model 08h)

Codenames of AMD sWRX8 reference platforms (CRBs) are "Cloudripper" and "Cloudripper DAP".

Package Description[edit]

The sWRX8 CPU package is lidded, has a 58.50 mm × 75.40 mm organic substrate with flip chip die attachment, and 4094 nickel and gold plated land pads. It ships with a carrier frame pre-installed. The carrier frame, made from an orange colored polycarbonate material, is a part of the package loading mechanism and remains on the package in the socket.

The package substrate has six keying notches along the short edges preventing it from being inserted 180 degrees rotated into the carrier frame or socket, or in an incompatible socket with mismatching keying features. Four additional positions are reserved for future models. However all sockets SP3, TR4, sTRX4, and sWRX8, and all processors for these sockets have the same keying. It is worth noting that these processors are also electrically keyed by pin SP3R1 and SP3R2. To boot the processor the motherboard must also provide compatible firmware. A triangular symbol on both sides of the substrate marks the location of pin A1, with corresponding markings on the socket. Decoupling capacitors are placed under the lid around the chiplets on the top side, and in two windows in the pad grid on the bottom side.

sWRX8 is a multi-chip package integrating one central I/O die and 4, 6, or 8 identical Core Complex Dies which contain eight CPU cores each. This silicon is "Starship" rev. SSP-B0 (CPU Family 17h) and "Genesis" GN-B1 (19h). AMD used the same chips for second and third generation EPYC server and embedded processors, and Ryzen Threadripper HEDT processors.

sWRX8 has the same memory and I/O interfaces, and the same on-package routing of signals as Socket SP3 Type-1/2 packages, with the differences noted above. The xGMI protocol and the WAFL interface, used to link processors on dual-socket platforms, are not supported on this socket. If sWRX8 processors are in fact EPYC 7002/7003 processors with different firmware and branding is unclear.

Chipsets[edit]

sWRX8 processors are SoCs with an integrated controller hub so they do not require a chipset, but are paired with the AMD WRX80 chipset (AMD 500-Series) serving as I/O expander.

The chipset is attached with an x8 PCIe link and can provide the following additional interfaces:

  • 16 lanes (+ 8-lane CPU link) PCIe Gen 1, 2, 3, 4 (16 GT/s)
  • 8 × SATA Gen 1, 2, 3 (6 Gb/s) ports sharing pins with the PCIe interface
  • 4 × SATA Gen 1, 2, 3 (6 Gb/s) ports, dedicated
  • 8 × USB 1.1, 2.0, 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gb/s) ports
  • 5 × USB 1.1, 2.0 ports

An audio interface is not provided by Socket sWRX8 or the chipset, an audio controller is commonly attached as on-board USB device. The sWRX8/WRX80 platform does not support overclocking.
