Have the Threadripper 5000 been delayed?

For several months now we have been talking about the new AMD Threadripper CPUs of the 5000 series and, according to several rumors, their debut on the market was scheduled for next November. Apparently, unfortunately, according to the latest rumors we will have to wait a little longer. In fact, as stated by the well-known leaker Greymon55, “Chagall” (code name of the new line) will be available only from next year.

Chagall seems to be delayed again, probably next year.

We remind you that the Threadripper 5000 will introduce some innovations, first of all the transition to the Zen 3 architecture, which alone will bring an improvement in terms of IPC of 19% as well as on Ryzen CPUs. However, the number of cores will remain unchanged, so we expect variants with 12, 16, 24, 32 and 64 cores. Obviously, these products are aimed at the High-End and Workstation segment, made up of professionals who need a lot of processing power. Although not officially confirmed, the Threadripper Pro 5000 is expected to offer the same options as the existing Threadripper Pro 3000 series, such as 128 lanes of PCIe 4.0 and support for eight-channel DDR4-3200 memory modules.

The arrival of the Threadripper 5000 for the next year may also suggest that the CPUs will use a more optimized Zen3 + architecture instead of Zen 3, but of course we are talking about pure speculation. Zen3 + is also expected to be used on the Ryzen 5000 APUs, codenamed “Rembrandt”, and the Ryzen 5000XTs, which will likely be shown at the next CES 2021.
