AMD will reportedly launch its Zen 3-based Ryzen Threadripper 5000 Series processors in the fall of 2021. This is according to leaker @KittyYyuko, who tweeted that red team is planning to release new-generation Threadripper CPUs in August. Popular system information and diagnostics tool HWiNFO has also published an update that alludes to a new round of these high-end processors, which target creators, developers, and other demanding enthusiasts.

The next-gen Threadripper series codenamed “Chagall” is expected to be compatible with current TRX40 motherboards, thus motherboard makers are currently waiting for a new AGESA firmware update with Chagall support, not to mention the actual engineering samples. The fact that those were not distributed yet, might confirm the rumor that the launch date is pushed back.
