AMD is preparing to announce Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 processors based on Zen 4 architecture for workstations. It confirms a leak Materials for future presentation of new products. In particular, they contain information about the launch window of the new Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000, the expected performance increase and information about at least one chip model in the new series.
The leak does not contain any specific start dates for processor sales. The materials simply indicate that the chips will be released in the fall. In the United States, September 22nd is considered the start of the fall season. In other words, the official announcement of the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 could come in the coming days.
As for the performance of the new processors, AMD’s slides report a 20 percent increase compared to the current Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 models. Unfortunately, the leak does not contain any graphics from AMD’s internal tests, which at least indirectly confirmed these statements.
Another slide reports that the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 processor series will include models with up to 96 cores, which is 50% more than the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 is ready to offer. It is also noted that the 96-core Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 is capable of increasing the number of rendering tasks completed per day by 75%. The chip performs an operation in 657 seconds. For comparison, the 56-core Xeon W9-3495X takes 1125 seconds to complete the same task.
The Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 processors are expected to require a new processor socket on motherboards as the chips will use different packaging compared to the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000. Thanks to the switch to a new platform, the new chips support the PCIe 5.0 interface and DDR5 RAM.
According to the VideoCardz portal, the announcement of at least four models of Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 series processors is expected: 96-core 7995WX, 64-core 7985WX, 32-core 7975WX and 16-core 7955WX.
