AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 'Chagall' Teased: MONSTROUS 64 Cores On Zen 3

AMD Ryzen is bringing out the biggest guns for their next-generation Threadripper CPUs.

According to a report by WCCFTech, the next-gen Threadripper chips codenamed “Chagall” will feature as much as 64 Zen 3-based cores on the 5990X & 5995WX, both of which are rumored to release next year.

The information comes from the YouTube channel Moore’s Law Is Dead, who said that the upcoming chips are going to be marketed to HEDT, “prosumers,” and workstation users. If everything works out, it is said that the CPUs are going to launch by November 2021, and will once again offer extremely tough competition for Intel.

This new rumored launch window comes after it was initially said that AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 will launch as early as August. But with the chip shortage still ongoing, Team Red choosing to delay the launch is quite understandable.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000: Beastly Specs

Insiders say that the flagship part will be the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X with a maximum of 64 cores and 128 threads, and a hefty 256 MB of super-fast L3 cache. There’s also an insane 64 PCIe 4.0 lanes (for those who want to install many PCIe extension cards), and support for quad-channel DDR4 3200.

But that’s just the top end of the product stack.

VideoCardz detailed the lower-end chips on the Threadripper 5000 line, and they’re not too shabby themselves. The lowest-end SKU is the 5960X, which will come with 16 cores and 32 threads. This corroborates early leaks about the Zen 3-based Threadripper chips back in January.

Two Different Categories

It’s also been revealed that AMD will be separating their upcoming Threadripper 5000 chips into two categories: Ryzen and PRO.

The former will be aimed at the HEDT and prosumer markets, and the latter for professionals, hence the “Pro” designation.

These Threadripper Pro chips feature specs that resemble that of the 3000 series. Its top-end part also features 64 cores and 128 threads, but will have a massive 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes.

Customers can expect the chip to come out around Q1 2022, but people might not be able to buy them at major retailers early on. That’s because existing Pro CPUs are only available to OEMs right now, and didn’t exactly launch on the retail side.

What About Zen 4?

Moving on to the foreseeable future, the imminent release of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 has also got people talking about its Zen 4 successor.

These chips are alleged to come with a massive 96 cores and are expected to launch in Q1 2023. It’s still a long way away, but it’s got people excited for good and obvious reasons.

There’s still no word from Intel about what their direct response to “Chagall” would be. It’s going to be tough for them to compete, given that they haven’t won a lot of battles in the CPU space lately, both on the consumer and data center markets.

Maybe Sapphire Rapids will get them over the hump, but who knows?
