AMD labs are busy working on new Zen 4 processors. The chipmaker has already transferred desktop and server chips to this microarchitecture, and next year we will have CPUs for laptops and workstations. In particular, engineering samples of the upcoming Ryzen Threadripper 7000 (Storm Peak) processors were recently noted in the [email protected] database.
Today, AMD has test samples of at least 64- and 96-core Ryzen Threadripper 7000 chips. They are characterized by a nominal frequency of 2.0-2.1 GHz, and given the constructive proximity to the EPYC 9004 server CPUs, we can declare the presence of up to 384 MB L3 cache, support for DDR5 RAM and high-speed PCI Express 5.0 interface. The specimens found bear the following markings:
AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000884-21_N (96 cores / 192 threads); AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000884-20_Y (96 cores / 192 threads); AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000454-20_Y (64 cores / 128 threads).
The official debut of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 (Storm Peak) processors, according to available information, will take place at the end of 2023. Along with them will be presented a new platform that will replace the WRX80.
