There have been a few rumors suggesting that AMD will be launching its next lineup of HEDT processors, the Ryzen Threadripper 5000 Series, later this summer. Those rumors have been echoed by hardware site MoePC, which published a report today claiming that these high-performance processors should be released in August. Code named “Chagall,” AMD’s fourth-generation Threadripper parts are said to improve upon their predecessors with the adoption of the Zen 3 architecture and other select improvements, such as a unified 32 MB L3 cache within a CCX and faster xGMI (Inter-Chip Global Memory Interconnect) speed of 18 GT/s. MoePC reports that there are no changes in many key areas such as core count and memory configuration.
There are no changes to core count, memory channels and IO. (ofc) Well, very little changes were done to Milan’s sIOD besides faster 18GT/s xGMI2 links. In addition, it is not yet certain whether there will be a refreshed new motherboard when it is released. I’m not sure if there will be refreshed new boards ready at launch.
