AMD's not-yet-released (or even announced) Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX processor continues to make unofficial appearances on the web. Last week the chip found its way to a distributing computing project's database (MilkyWay@home), and now it is flashing its pro-tuned heavy metal in a handful of benchmark runs. The Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series is not out yet, but it eventually will be released. It is based on AMD's Zen 3 architecture and carries the codename Chagall. According to past leaks, the workstation models will be offered in 12-core/24-thread, 16-core/32-thread, 32-core/64-thread, and 64-core/128-thread configurations. It's the latter that the Threadripper Pro 5995WX falls into, wielding... Read more...
Perhaps the final frontier for Zen 3 is AMD's eventual Threadripper lineup of high end desktop (HEDT) chips. It just depends on which come out first, next-gen Threadripper chips, or refreshed Zen 3 processors in the mainstream segment with stacked 3D v-cache. While we are waiting to find out, a couple of Threadripper Pro chips have been spotted in the Milky Way. As in, the MilkyWay@home distributed computing project. These types of projects tap into the computing resources of anyone who opts to participate, usually only taking advantage of idle CPU or GPU cycles. It is a strength in numbers kind of thing. You may have heard of Folding@home, which is a DC project aimed at running simulations of... Read more...
It appears all kinds of juicy information is being revealed as the result of a recent ransomware attack targeting Gigabyte. Earlier today, we wrote about supposed leaked details highlighting AMD's next-generation EPYC server processors based on Zen 4 (codenamed Genoa), but apparently the stolen files also contained some details about the next round of Threadripper chips. The Ryzen Threadripper branding is reserved for AMD's high-end desktop (HEDT) class processors. These bridge the gap between consumer and server segments, offering more desktop computing power for creators, streamers, and enthusiasts. They are arguably a little less compelling now that AMD's 'mainstream' CPUs scale to 16 cores... Read more...
We are still waiting for AMD to unveil its next generation of Ryzen Threadripper processors for enthusiasts, which raises the question, has the company given up on the high end desktop (HEDT) segment? There is no indication that it has, so no worries there. As for when Threadripper CPUs based on Zen 3 will arrive, rumor has it we will see them in November. You may recall that back in April, it was rumored AMD would launch its Threadripper 5000 "Chagall" CPUs in August. That could still happen, in terms of an introduction, with actual availability being slated for a couple of months later. Regardless of the exact time frame, however, it seems new Threadripper silicon is right around the bend.... Read more...
AMD has not yet thrust its Zen 3 architecture into every possible CPU segment, though it has hit the main ones (consumer desktops and laptops, and the lucrative server market). One of the stones that still needs to be turned over is the high-end desktop (HEDT) category. Good news, though—rumor has it a Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series is destined for an August launch. As a point of reference, AMD introduced its third-generation Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series based on Zen 2 in November of 2019. Zen 3, meanwhile, launched just four months ago with the introduction of AMD's Ryzen 5000 series desktop CPUs. So an August launch for a new round of Ryzen Threadripper processors is certainly plausible.... Read more...
