AMD isn’t planning on launching its Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series processors until Autumn, according to a tweet shared by hardware leaker Chi11eddog today that suggests the upcoming lineup of chips, which have been rumored to feature up to 96 cores, will be released in September 2023 and comprise both workstation and HEDT models.
According to Chi11eddog, AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series, code named “Storm Peak,” will include HEDT models that support quad-channel memory and feature 64 PCIe 5.0 lanes, while the workstation models will support eight-channel memory and feature 128 PCIe 5.0 lanes.
The latter will seemingly lack OC support for CPU and memory, however.
- HEDT: 4 channel, 64 pcie gen5 lanes, 8 pcie gen3 lanes, support OC
- WS: 8 channel, 128 pcie gen5 lanes, 8 pcie gen3 lanes, no OC for CPU&MEM
AMD announced its Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series workstation processors on March 8, 2022, led by the 64-core, 128-thread AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX with 280-watt TDP and boost/base frequency of up to 4.5/2.7 GHz.
“Building on the best-selling and award-winning Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3000 WX processors, the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors bring dominant, full-spectrum performance leadership across multiple workstation workloads due to the performance and efficiency of the ‘Zen 3’ core architecture and increased processor frequencies,” explained AMD at the time.
AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series will presumably do something similar, although there’s no indication of how they’ll be priced.
The Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX costs $6,499.
