AMD Threadripper PRO 7000 "Storm Peak" CPUs Launching October 19th, Leak Alleges

Per sources on Wccftech, AMD may have a date set for launching the much-anticipated successor to the company’s highly successful Threadripper PRO series. The Zen 4 entry of the lineup is said to bring a maximum of 96 cores, 192 threads with huge cache sizes, making it very much an ideal choice for studios and labs that demand such degrees of computational firepower.

The date is said to be on 19th of October, and as the product name implies, this will be a workstation model that comes with -WX model suffixes. These chips gets paired with dedicated motherboard chipsets that exclusively supports them, directly succeeding the previous WRX80 models (featuring Socket sWRX8). The difference to the HEDT-equivalents, last seen all the way back in Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series, is the chipset and memory capabilities – the HEDT models comes with quad-channel memory, half that of workstations’.

There’s good news for DIYers this time, though: OEMs are said to be offering pre-built designs as well as DIY TRX50 models, directly succeeding the TRX40 motherboards last seen some 4 years ago. While no details is known regarding desktop models thus far, there will be 4 models at launch under the PRO family: the 96-core 7995WX, 64-core 7985WX, 32-core 7975WX, 16-core 7955WX and finally, a 12-core 7945WX for those who needs expansive PCIe over core counts. Going by improvements made on the sister chip, the EPYC 9004 series, expect these improvements:

  • Zen 4 core architecture
  • up to 96 cores / 192 threads
  • new TRX50/WRX50 motherboards (Storm Peak)
  • increased TDP of 350W (from 280W)
  • 8-channel & 4-channel DDR5
  • up to 128 PCIe 5.0 lanes
  • up to 384MB of L3 cache
  • up to 75% faster than Threadripper 5000WX series

We may only see the PRO models launching first – and if history is any indication, the desktop models may be revealed a few months later (or likely coinciding with CES 2024).
