The Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 CPU family, codenamed Storm Peak, generates a lot of buzz due to many noticeable improvements. The most noticeable improvement is the inclusion of the latest Zen 4 cores and increased core counts. These CPUs will have 96 cores and 192 threads, as well as large cache capacities, making them a dream come true for experts in the workstation and content creation areas.
According to our credible sources, AMD is preparing to launch its highly anticipated next-generation Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 “Storm Peak” CPUs on October 19th, cementing its position as the premier workstation option. This incident occurred over a year after the Zen 3-based Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 CPUs debuted.
The forthcoming chips will again be aimed mainly at the premium workstation category, with limited availability for DIY enthusiasts. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will provide pre-built systems supplemented by various DIY TRX50 motherboards from other vendors.
According to reports, AMD will produce five AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000WX CPUvariants, including the 7995WXwith 96 cores, the7985WXwith 64 cores, and the7975WXwith 32 cores, the 7955WX with 16 cores, and the 7945WX with 12 cores. These are preliminary specifications; all processors will have a maximum TDP of 350W.
These CPUs will be used on the upcoming TRX50/WRX50 platforms, which will handle up to 128 PCIe Gen 5 lanes and 8-channel DDR5 memory. Leaked benchmark results suggest significant performance improvements, with the flagship CPU potentially giving up to a 70% boost over the PRO 5995WX, which was limited to 64 cores. The following improvements are expected from the next-generation Threadripper chips:
- Zen 4 Core Architecture
- Up to 96 Cores / 192 Threads
- New TRX50/WRX50 Platform (Storm Peak)
- TDP Ratings Across all SKUs, the maximum power output is 350W.
- Support for 8- and 4-channel DDR5 memory
- Up to 128 PCIe Gen 5.0 Lanes
- Up to 384 MB L3 Cache / 480 MB Full Pool
- Up to 75% faster than Threadripper 5000WX
These advancements represent a significant improvement over the preceding TRX40/WRX40 platforms. However, pricing information will be disclosed only if AMD decides to distribute these chips via the DIY (Do It Yourself) channel at launch. Historically, past Ryzen Threadripper releases have seen a delay in the availability of DIY choices, with OEM/pre-built systems being introduced first.
