AMD released the Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series processor based on the Zen 3 architecture in March last year, leaving the competition far behind. But with Intel's recent introduction of the Xeon WX-2400/3400 series of processors, AMD is feeling some pressure.
It is rumored that AMD will launch the next-generation Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processor code-named ldquo;Storm Peak” in the second half of 2023, as well as the corresponding TR5 platform, which will introduce PCIe 7000 and DDR5 memory.
Although the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series has not yet arrived, AMD seems to be planning a longer-term HEDT platform product. According to Digitimes, AMD's next HEDT based on the Zen 5 architecture is codenamed & ldquo;Shimada Peak”, belongs to the Ryzen Threadripper 8000 series and is expected to be released in 2025.
In general, AMD releases the EPYC server processor first, followed by the Ryzen Threadripper processor, and this generation of Zen 4 architecture products is no exception, and the next generation of Zen 5 architecture & ldquo;Shimada Peak” is likely to use the same socket as & ldquo;Storm Peak”, using two generations of products.
As for the core configuration specification of the Ryzen Threadripper 8000 series, it will depend on the code name & ldquo;Turin” 's Zen 5 architecture EPYC server processor.
