AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000

Updated: Aug 19, 2021

Chagall is a pretty funky name for a new Microprocessor series, but nonetheless here it are about to be!

Chagall was a French painter born in Russia who was famed for his dreamlike imagery and brilliant canvas colors.

I myself have been wondering whut the Threadripper holdup wuz all about and getting perturbed about them abandoning the Threadripper lineage entirely!

So this is the very last Zen 3 Threadripper or any future Zen 3 platform product release.

Next up is the Zen 3+ which will require the 600 series chipsets and technically make it PCI Gen 5 capable but I have it on good authority that here will be no Zen 3+ Threadripper as it is being limited to 16 core production runs.

Threadripper has always been PCI Gen 4 capable by the way.

The next Threadripper Gen stuff after this 5000 series will all be Zen 4 based.

There seems to be two series of these Threadripper 5000 series things coming our way: - the AMD Ryzen Threadripper HEDT and Workstation series based on Zen 3 architecture.

The 19H family of processors is listed in numerous places in the documents that have been published confirming both the maximum core configuration of the series as well as their thermal requirements.

According to the ‘Infrastructure Roadmap for sTRX4 and sWRTX8 Processors’, AMD will launch both the Workstation and High-End Desktop Zen 3 Threadripper series.

The table that lists thermal requirements for both platforms confirms that TDP ranges have not changed since Zen 2, nor has the core count for the next-gen Threadripper series. The table confirms that the top SKU will be 64 cores.

The configurations of each TR series is shown in the table below.

The HEDT version will be available in 64, 32, and 24 core SKUs, whereas the PRO (Workstation) will get as many as five SKUs: 64, 32, 24, 16 & 12 core.

The table also lists IOD power ratings, which are: 110W, 85W, 80W, 75W, and 62W respectively for each core variant.

It is also noted that Workstation Threadripper has higher IOD power due to support for 8-channel memory and 128 PCIe Gen4 lanes, both being the exclusive features for the PRO series.

The chiplet and IO die measurements have also been shared confirming small variations in the size between Zen 2 and Zen 3 Threadripper series.

What has not changed are the sizes of the CPU package and LGA socket, ensuring that next-gen Threadripper, which is now scheduled to launch around November 2021, will be compatible with existing TRX40 and WRX80 motherboards.
