The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series, codenamed Storm Peak, will feature SKUs with up to 96 cores, according to Benchleaks, who spotted engineering sample entries (1, 2) listed on Einstein@Home, an application that leverages the idle time of users’ computers to search for weak astrophysical signals.

“Number of processors: 192,” reads a line from both entries, teasing a chip that features 192 threads and 96 cores, a number that would put the processor in line with AMD’s new 4th Gen EPYC flagship, which is listed with 96 cores, a 3.7 GHz boost clock, and 360-watt TDP.

Following the latest development, it seems that OPN codes for three unannounced Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series models have been leaked thus far:

  • AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000884-21_N (96 Core / 192 Thread)
  • AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000884-20_Y (96 Core / 192 Thread)
  • AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000454-20_Y (64 Core / 128 Thread)

AMD announced its Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series workstation processors, led by the 64-core, 128-thread AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX, in March 2022. They were released for the DIY market in August.

Ryzen Threadripper users can seemingly expect a flagship that features a higher core count in the next generation, alongside support for newer technologies such as DDR5 and PCIe 5.0.

AMD previously noted that there would be no non-PRO Ryzen Threadripper models going forward.
