AMD has not announced its Zen 3-based Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series processors, code-named Chagall, but apparently, at least some of them are in the wild. Two entries in the MilkyWay@home database confirm that AMD is preparing Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX and Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5945WX CPUs.
As the model shows, AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX will be the company’s next-generation flagship processor for high-end workstations.We already know from leaks based on data stolen from Gigabyte that AMD’s Chagall CPU will have a maximum of 64 cores, So the core number of model 5995WX is easy to guess. At the same time, Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5945WX will actually be a “only” high-frequency processor with 12 cores.
On August 23 and August, the two CPUs were tested by running the MilkyWay@home distributed computing project client on two different PCs and found @Benchleaks. The CPU is detected as AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX 64 core [Family 25 Model 8 Stepping 2] with AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5945WX 12 core [Family 25 Model 8 Stepping 2].
Obviously, AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX series family will have more than two models, so we expect more SKUs to appear. Although this is the current guess, the series may also include 16-core and 32-core models, just like the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX series.
Like the existing AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3000WX series, the upcoming 5000WX series may be equipped with 128 spare PCIe channels to connect various accelerators and storage devices, as well as 8 DDR4 memory channels to support up to 2TB of DRAM. Maybe AMD will bring other benefits to its next-generation workstation CPU, but it has not been revealed yet.
There are rumors that AMD intends to launch its next-generation Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series processors in November this year, and the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WS series will be launched in early 2022. However, it should be noted that AMD has not announced in advance the timetable for the official release of its future products.
