AMD beats Intel – Again

AMD beats Intel: New CPUs with 64 cores and DDR5 RAM in November!

After the hacking of Gigabyte’s website, quite a lot of information has been leaked. It is related to the next generation of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 processors, codenamed Chagall, and Zen 3 architecture. So, today it has been leaked that, in a way, AMD intends to pull out all the stops in terms of power, and these processors will feature up to 64 physical cores and 128 processing threads but with a whopping TDP of up to 280 watts. Is this a risky move or something that will pay off? Time will tell, but here’s what’s known.

For quite some time, AMD’s Ryzen processors have dominated both sales and performance rankings; this resulted from Intel resting on its laurels and allowing AMD to overtake them on the right. Now, however, it’s Intel that’s getting their act together, so AMD has been forced to react quickly to avoid losing its hegemony. Whether they will succeed or not depends on many factors, but these Threadripper 5000s could be a coup on the table if things go their way.

AMD Threadripper 5000 CPUs with 64 cores leaked

To begin with the specifics, we already knew that AMD would launch its next-generation Ryzen Threadripper and Threadripper Pro families based on the Zen 3 architecture under the codename Chagall. The first processors are scheduled to be released in November 2021, with the first lineup consisting of multiple chips with a high core count.

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 range is confirmed as “AMD Family 19h 08h” processors in the newest leak, with at least eight distinct versions, five for WRX80 workstations and three for the HEDT TRX40 platform. Workstation versions will feature 64, 32, 24, 16, and 12 cores, while HEDT machines will have 64, 32, and 24-core variations.

While the IOD for the HEDT variations is rated at 80W, each workstation chip has a separate IOD rating; the 64-core variant will have a rated IOD of 110W, the 32-core model will have an IOD of 85W, the 16-core model will have an IOD of 75W, and the 12-core physical variant will have an IOD of 62W. The 64-core workstation model is rated 35 W greater than the HEDT model, owing to the workstation model’s 8-channel IMC and up to 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes, compared to 64 for the HEDT variants.

Threadripper 5000 Chagall cores sizes

The AMD Threadripper 5000 series will feature 2 segments, the Ryzen and Pro variants. The Ryzen Threadripper 5000 family will target the HEDT and Prosumer market. The initial lineup features the 5990X model, the flagship part with 64 cores, 128 threads, 256 MB of L3 cache, 64 PCIe 4.0 lanes, and quad-channel 3,200 MHz DDR4 memory interface.

This CPU family is likely to ship in November 2021, putting Threadripper in the fourth quarter of this year rather than the third quarter, as previously reported. Pricing is also projected to be more than what we saw with the Zen 2 series of CPUs, which makes sense considering comparing the Ryzen 5000 desktop processors and previous Ryzen 3000 processors. AMD could offer specific single models first and the flagship later, as it did with the Threadripper 3990X in the past.
