News AMD's Socket AM5 Will Likely Maintain Compatibility With AM4 Coolers

I'm a bit skeptical since none of the leaked diagrams I've seen have dimensions indicated. AMD changed spacing of the threaded posts of the AM4 backplate from AM3 so it's possible AM5 could do the same. I recall the reason given was to allow for optimized DDR4 memory trace path routing...so might DDR5 require something different?

AMD did keep location of the tabs for the clip mounting the same at least.
