AMD’s Next-Gen Ryzen Threadripper 7000 CPUs Equipped With Zen 4 Cores
In March of this year, ASUS Computer’s head disclosed that AMD is set to launch the next-generation Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processors, code-named “Storm Peak,” in the second half of 2023. These processors will feature cores based on the Zen 4 architecture, and the corresponding TR5 platform will introduce support for PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory. Beginning with version 2.05, CPU-Z has incrementally provided support for the new processors.
Recently, Twitter user @harukaze5719 discovered on a shipping manifest that AMD has allocated model numbers and product codes (OPN) for at least three Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processors, specifically:
– Threadripper 7995WX 350W SP6 100-000000884
– Threadripper 7985WX 350W SP6 100-000000454
– Threadripper 7945WX 350W SP6 100-000000887
These details confirm that all three processors have a TDP of 350W and utilize the SP6 socket, which is also compatible with the code-named “Siena” EPYC 8004 series processors. It is still unclear whether these processors are part of the Threadripper Pro product line or belong to the Threadripper line targeted at the High-End Desktop (HEDT) market.
Previous reports have stated that the Threadripper Pro 7900 series uses the SP5 socket, supporting 8-channel DDR5 memory, along with 128 lanes of PCIe 5.0 and 8 lanes of PCIe 3.0, albeit lacking in CPU and memory overclocking capabilities. The Threadripper 7900 series, on the other hand, will offer comprehensive CPU and memory overclocking features, using the SP6 socket, and will support 4-channel DDR5 memory, providing 64 lanes of PCIe 5.0.
