Did you think AMD ditched Ryzen Threadripper processors? Nothing could be more wrong! The manufacturer is preparing to release a new generation of systems that may turn out to be a hit in professional workstations.
As you may remember, the first leaks about Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 processors appeared some time ago, but the manufacturer was rather unwilling to introduce units to the market (after all, workstations are still ruled by Ryzen Threadripper 3000 and Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3000 models ). However, we are returning to the topic, because recently there are new leaks about systems and there is indeed something to wait for.
They expected five references of these new AMD Threadripper PRO 5000 series but so far not any of the series for desktop Threadripper is expected. Some processors, like the Intel Sapphire Rapids, are late. These new AMD processors for professionals were expected at their launch along with the Ryzen 5000, now they almost overlap with the new AMD Ryzen 6000 series that is expected at CES 2022Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 CPU specification leaked
Well, it seems that this time AMD will give up the consumer Ryzen Threadripper models (as long as Threadrippers can be called consumer processors) and will only release the Ryzen Threadripper Pro series typically for workstations. Well, the HEDT segment is slowly getting absorbed by the mainstream platform.
The manufacturer plans five models: 12-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5945WX, 16-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5955WX, 24-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5965WX, 32-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX and 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX. The chips use a new microarchitecture - Zen 3. Like the previous series, they offer an 8-channel DDR4-3200 memory controller and a controller with 128 PCI-Express 4.0 lines.

All models have a TDP of 280 W (configurable in the range of 170 - 260 W). Importantly, the units will be compatible with the sWRX8 platform, so people planning to upgrade hardware from Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3000 models will have an easier task (without replacing the motherboard).When is the premiere of AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 processors?
According to VideoCardz, the premiere of Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 processors was not be scheduled until March 8, 2022 (an interesting gift idea for Women's Day is being prepared :)). However, it can be suspected that new units will be announced next month at the AMD conference before CES 2022.
