Spinning off this thread from the Zen5 discussion thread to be able to have a more focused discussion. This thread is for any discussion people want to have on integrated voltage regulators. Of particular interest are what Intel and AMD are using in their more modern processors. I won't be reposting here the ongoing discussion but I am linking to 2 AMD patents related to their power distribution network on their modern processors for anyone that wants to read those as well (thanks to @PJVol for supplying the links in the other thread). The discussion in the Zen5 thread has revolved around AMD's designs but Intel discussion is welcome as well.

AMD Patents:

A brief summary of my interpretation of AMD's design based upon the patents is in this post.
