Ryzen Threadripper 5000 Pro (Chagall) CPUs, with twelve cores to 64 cores.


A recent report by VideoCardz claims that an AMD slide has confirmed the existence of the company’s brand new Ryzen Threadripper 5000 Pro (Chagall) CPUs that have the capacity of 12 cores at 64 cores. It appears, however, that AMD is going after system integrators in the first place at the moment. As of now, there are no new developments for the standard Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series. Therefore, it’s unclear if non-Pro CPUs will be available on DIY markets.

As we’ve seen in previous leaks, the fact that Ryzen Threadripper 5000 will not include a boost in the core count or any other kind over AMD’s current generation Ryzen Threadripper 3000 (Castle Peak) components. Instead, the CPUs are likely to remain with a high number of 64 cores with a minimum of 12. Furthermore, the leaked data showed 16-, 12- 2432- and 64-core variants, which AMD claims to be released to OEMs.

The latest Zen 3 powered Ryzen Threadripper 5000 Pro CPUs have a 4.5 GHz boost clock across the board, instead of 4.2 GHz and 4.3 GHz on the Ryzen Threadripper 3000, depending on the model you pick. 100 MHz also increased the base clocks for the 16-core, 12-core, and 32-core versions (there was not a 24-core Threadripper 3000 version). However, the base clock is the identical 64-core model. If the information leaked is authentic, the TDP will not be altered, as do the core counts. It will remain at 2880W for all components, including the 12-core and 16-core models.

The most significant improvement in Threadripper 5000’s future will be the change in architecture between Zen 2 to Zen 3. Even though AMD’s Zen 3 architecture is two years older, it will offer a considerable upgrade for the HEDT market, offering as much as 19 percent IPC increase over Threadripper 3000 running the older Zen 2 microarchitecture. It’ll also be way ahead of what Intel is delivering on the HEDT market today, as their last platform is Cascade Lake.

One of the most notable features that could be added to Threadripper 5000 Pro CPUs is the addition of dual-socket support for the brand new platform. This is a commonly used feature in servers, but it hasn’t been available on the consumer or workstation market for a long time. Additionally, it permits two CPUs to work in harmony on a single motherboard, doubting the number of core CPUs and memory channel access in one system. If this happens to be accurate, we could soon see Threadripper Pro 5000 models with 128 processors and 256 threads.

However, this information is only applicable for AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 series of CPUs at the moment. As of now, we don’t have any information regarding the standard Ryzen Threadripper 5000 parts. As of now, AMD could be scrapping its traditional HEDT line ultimately to make way for the workstation model.
