AMD’s Threadripper 7000 CPUs, TR5 Platform Will Arrive Later This Year

Intel’s Sapphire Rapids Xeon W (codenamed Fishhawk Falls) processors aren’t the only core-heavy products in the HEDT market for a long time. Tony Yu (opens in new tab)General Manager of Asus China (via) HXL (opens in new tab)) has confirmed that AMD’s rival Ryzen Threadripper 7000 (codenamed Storm Peak) and Spanking’s new TR5 platform will hit the market in the second half of this year. Powered by the latest Zen 4 cores, the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 is definitely on our list of the best CPUs for workstations.

AMD’s consumer (Ryzen 7000), mobile (Ryzen 7045 and Ryzen 7040) and server (EPYC 9004) lineups have all received Zen 4 upgrades. So it’s fair for AMD to give the rest of its Ryzen Threadripper parts the same treatment. AMD will use a combination of TSMC’s 5nm and 6nm process nodes for the core computing die (CCD) and I/O die (IOD) respectively in its chiplet-designed Zen 4 processors. The Ryzen Threadripper 700 is unlikely to deviate from this formula. A hot topic is whether AMD will limit his Ryzen Threadripper 7000 to 64 cores or match it with the EPYC 9004 (codenamed Genoa) maximum core count.
