AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7985WX pictured: using SP6 socket

In the final quarter of 2023, AMD is poised to unveil its next-generation Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processor, codenamed “Storm Peak,” endowed with cores based on the Zen 4 architecture. The corresponding TR5 platform is slated to introduce support for PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory. This novel generation will span from 16 cores up to a formidable 96 cores, though select models might be exclusively reserved for OEM manufacturers.

Recent murmurs among the online community suggest that engineering samples of the Ryzen Threadripper 7985WX processor have made their appearance on secondary market platforms. This chip, designed for the SP6 socket and based on the Zen 4 architecture, boasts 64 cores and 128 threads. It comes with a default TDP of 350W, and its product code (OPN) is identified as 100-00000454—a detail aligning with previously leaked intelligence.

To harness the prowess of this processor, one would necessitate pairing it with the new TRX50 motherboard. However, there’s yet a conspicuous absence of this product in the current marketplace. Once available, it promises to deliver 4-channel DDR5 memory support along with 64 PCIe 5.0 lanes. It’s noteworthy that ASRock has already submitted details of its TRX50 WS motherboard to the Eurasian Economic Commission (ECC), meticulously crafted for workstations and emblematic of robust performance, effortless manageability, and unwavering reliability.
