AMD Ryzen Threadripper (Pro) 7000 comes with Zen 4 and is expected to offer up to 96 cores, according to an entry in the science project database. Einstein@Home now betray. The easiest option for AMD would be to adopt their latest Epyc 9004 (“Genoa”) server platform and the LGA 6069 socket.

While the first processors of the older series, the so-called Engineering Samples (ES) or Qualification Samples (QS), of the upcoming HEDT or Threadripper (Pro) 7000 (“Storm Peak”) workstation CPUs already appeared in the recent past, which have up to 64 cores and 128 threads, two corresponding samples with 96 cores and 192 threads have now been leaked for the first time.

The two new CPUs expand the existing SKUs to a total of three models:

  • AMD Engineer Example: 100-000000884-21_N
  • AMD Engineer Example: 100-000000884-20_Y
  • AMD Engineer Example: 100-000000454-20_Y

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 is scheduled for 2023 with Zen 4 cores. It is not yet known what adjustments will be made to the HEDT desktop or workstation processors.

The easiest option would be to take over server solutions from Epyc processors, whose LGA 6069 socket offers a 12-channel memory interface and a particularly extensive I/O feature set with 128 lanes according to PCIe 5.0.

Threadripper = Epyc for workstation

In the past, early desktop threadrippers were cut in half in terms of memory interface, for example, but AMD moved away from this approach for now with early Threadripper Pro models and, as more recently with the Threadripper Pro 5000, presented almost Epyc. processors in a standalone version.

It is not yet known if AMD will use “Storm Peak”, the codename of the new platform that will follow Castle Peak or Chagall, again in the HEDT area or only in the workstation area.
