Gigabyte leak reveals Zen 3 Threadripper CPU code-named “Chagall”
It’s been almost two years since AMD’s current version was released Ryzen Thread Ripper The CPU gave AMD plenty of time to prepare its successor. Now, at least according to Gigabyte’s leaked details about the hacking of the new Zen 3’Chagall’ Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series chips, it seems that there is a successor on the way.As from Computer base, These CPUs will reach the maximum with the same 64 cores and 280W as the Ryzen 3000 Threadripper, but have a significantly faster Zen 3 architecture, which is a well-known formula Best CPU in the market.
According to the information leaked by Gigabyte, AMD seems to be preparing two lineups for Zen 3 Threadripper. One will focus on the HEDT market, while the second will target workstation users (called Threadripper Pro) with more memory channels. The HEDT chip will run on the TRX40 platform, while the workstation model will run on the WRX80 socket.
The Gigabyte leak only revealed minimal information about the new Zen 3 Threadripper chip: there is no complete specification sheet to speak of. But the leak did reveal the AVX-512 support, chip layout and thermal specifications of the new chip.
We can be sure that Zen 3 Threadripper will have 64 cores, 32 cores and SKUs below 32 cores. However, if AMD’s core count is the same as Ryzen 3000 Threadripper, then we should also see 24-core, 32-core and 64-core versions of the new chip.
If AMD uses the same logic for its Threadripper Pro series, we will see 12, 16, 32 and 64 core chips. You can also add 24 cores.
Therefore, no, AMD will not add more cores with the new Chagall Threadripper chip. However, this does not mean that the new CPU will slow down. The Zen 3 architecture should provide a huge performance improvement for Threadripper, thanks to all the cores in the CCD directly communicating with the L3 cache, especially Threadripper can use up to 8 CCDs. Not to mention the other improvements that Zen 3 must provide.
We don’t have a launch date yet, but there are rumors that the release window for HEDT chips is set for November this year, and the release window for Threadripper Pro is set for 2022.
