Zen 3-based Ryzen Threadripper 5000 CPUs slotted for August release, per rumors
Since its launch last November, AMD’s Zen 3 architecture has produced many “must-have” CPUs in the Ryzen 5000 series. However, one market segment has been waiting for Zen 3-based CPUs for roughly a year and a half. Thankfully (if rumors are to be believed), that will be remedied in August 2021; Zen 3 Threadripper CPUs will finally launch at the end of summer.
This information comes from leakster Yuko Yoshida (@KittyYYuko on Twitter). Yoshida claims that AMD will launch the next generation of Threadripper processors in August, meaning CPUs based on the Zen 3 architecture.
The Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series (codenamed “Chagall”) will be designed for professionals that rely on high-threaded workloads. As the current Threadripper 3000 series scales up to 64 cores (128 threads), Threadripper 5000 should have a CPU with at least this many cores, and they’ll be based on AMD’s refined 7nm+ design present in Zen 3.
Of course, this is a rumor posted by a single source that has yet to be verified, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. We haven’t heard much else about Threadripper 5000 either. However, AMD’s HEDT CPU line is due for an update, so it’s possible we’ll see Zen 3 make its way to the monstrous Threadripper line sometime later this year.
