Rumor: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X with 64 Zen 3 cores coming in November

AMD is rumored to release its upcoming Threadripper 5000 processors with Zen 3 cores in November. These chips would again be supplied with a maximum of 64 cores. The company is expected to release Pro variants of these chips in January 2022.

The AMD Threadripper 5990X would be the highest-ranking model in the upcoming CPU series, YouTube user Moore’s Law is Dead claims . This leaker claims that that processor has 64 cores and 128 threads, although the clock speeds are still unknown. The Threadripper 5000 CPUs would have four memory channels with official support for DDR4-3200. The CPU series would also have 64 PCIe 4.0 lanes for GPUs, SSDs and other expansion devices.

According to Moore’s Law is Dead, the Threadripper 5000 lineup will be released in November this year, reporting that prices are expected to be higher than current Threadripper 3000 chips. AMD is also said to be working on Pro variants of these hedt processors. The company previously released Threadripper Pro 3000 chips. These Pro models offer eight memory channels and 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes, but are otherwise identical to the regular chips. The Threadripper Pro 5000 processors are expected in January 2022.

Moore’s Law is Dead goes on to talk about Chagall X3D processors. These would be Threadripper 5000 CPUs with stacked 3D V cache. AMD demonstrated such cache earlier this year in a modified Ryzen 9 5900X. The company will begin production of Ryzen CPUs with 3D V cache later this year, AMD previously confirmed to Tom’s Hardware . The alleged Chagall X3D CPUs are said to be based on AMD’s recent EPYC CPUs for servers. The chips are expected to come out before the second half of 2022, although the YouTube user is still a bit concerned.

Furthermore, AMD would come with a next generation of Threadripper processors in 2023, Moore’s Law is Dead claims. These chips would come with up to 96 cores and be based on the Zen 4 microarchitecture. That’s consistent with previous information from ExecutableFix , which is more likely to share correct information about unannounced AMD products.
