AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series will be released this fall

In March this year, General Manager for ASUS Computers intimated that AMD is poised to launch the subsequent generation of Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processors, codenamed “Storm Peak”, in the latter half of 2023. This launch will be accompanied by the corresponding TR5 platform, integrating both PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory.

While AMD has remained reticent about the precise release timeline, astute netizens have disclosed pertinent slides that suggest the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processors, based on the Zen 4 architecture, are slated for an autumn release, implying a date post-September 22nd for the Northern Hemisphere. According to one such presentation, the new offerings, when juxtaposed against their predecessors—the Zen 3-based Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series—will witness a performance augmentation of 20%. It is inferred that this leap pertains to single-core performance, although the specifics of testing criteria and platform configurations remain shrouded in ambiguity.

Another slide highlights the prowess of the new 96-core processor in rendering tasks, accomplishing feats in a mere 657 seconds—a considerable leap over its competitor, Intel’s 56-core, 112-thread Xeon W9-3495X processor, which lags at 1125 seconds.

Earlier leaks have unveiled that the inaugural batch of the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processors will encompass at least four variants: the Threadripper PRO 7945WX, 7975WX, 7985WX, and 7995WX, corresponding to 16/32/64/96 cores respectively. The pièce de résistance among these is the Threadripper PRO 7995WX, boasting 96 cores and 192 threads, complemented by an L2 cache of 96MB, an L3 cache of 384MB, and a TDP of 350W.
