It would also be better if you can move onto a socket less CPU like Intel, There's a less chance of breaking and bending the pins.
We are not in the stone age now, we are in the space age!
So you want AMD to spend millions of dollars to design and bring a chip to market that will only knock on the doorstep of less than 1% of the market? Our forum/community only contributes to the smallest amount of chip sales. If AMD does this, they will lose money...not only that, but the chips will cost much like Intel's top end ($500-$1000+). Intel has the expendable cash to design the top chips (They still lose money on these: 980X etc)
Not only the money, but it takes years of design for such a chip, and then months of testing and production manufacturing. They also have to fit TDP and power draw requirements of motherboards and the chip package.
Everyone would like to see a top AMD chip. Even the guys at AMD. However right now there is no expendable cash and the business needs to gravitate in a direction that will make them profitable.
Keep in mind AMD is a business.

I have inserted hundreds of PGA chips in my life and never bent a pin.
Niether. And even then I'd rather fix a bent cpu pin than a socket pin. (mechanical pencils work wonders)
