Amd confirmed that the ryzen threadripper 7000 hedt CPU based on the Zen 4 core architecture will be available in 2023 In the newly released roadmap, amd said that it was developing the ryzen threadripper 7000 series driven by the next generation Zen 4 kernel, which is expected to be released in 2023.
The AMD ryzen threadripper 7000 desktop CPU will have a maximum of 96 cores and 192 threads, based on the Zen 4 kernel architecture, and will be manufactured on the 5nm node of TSMC. These CPUs will replace the existing "Chagall" series and are designed purely for high-end and extreme workstation users. Since the core quantities are the same as epyc Genoa parts, they may use the same mold, but specific parts are disabled for standard consumers.
For epyc, AMD will switch to its new SP5 slot. A new slot will also be designed around the threadripper platform, possibly called Tr5 or sp5r2. The existing TR4 socket has used the Zen 2 and Zen 3 threadripper options for two generations. Amd may reserve a similar rhythm for the upcoming slots that support new technologies such as ddr5 and PCIe 5.0. The CPU itself will be very large, as shown in the SP5 chip package below:
Zen 4C variants or v-cache variants are not mentioned in the roadmap, but amd may launch them in the future. We have also seen some Genoa SP5 motherboards with dual lga-6096 slots. Therefore, considering that Intel's xeon-w sapphire rapids chip adopts the same route, these motherboards may also belong to the threadripper series. Amd recently began to relax the timing exclusivity of the threadripper Pro 5000wx chip, so the next generation is likely to enter the DIY market like the previous threadripper 1000/2000 series chips.
