AMD launched what it called the world’s most powerful desktop processors, the 24-core Ryzen Threadripper 3960X and 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 3970X, in November 2019. According to a post from ServeTheHome forum member lihp, the first successors to 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper will be announced in August 2021 and go on sale in September. Leveraging the modern Zen 3 architecture, AMD’s next-generation Ryzen Threadripper family is expected to reintroduce a cheaper, 16-core SKU and maintain compatibility with the current sTRX4 socket. Leaker KittyYYuko had hinted that 4th Gen Ryzen Threadripper would make its debut in August last month.

[…] it has still not been determined whether Zen3 Threadripper is called the “5000” or “6000” series. For now, it is believed that Zen3 TR might be 5000 series, simply because there have been no leaks on possible Zen3+ architecture coming to the HEDT platform. However, should AMD launch Rembrandt, Warhol, and Chagall all featuring alleged Zen3+ architecture, it would make perfect sense to put all products under the 6000 series.
