AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 ‘Chagall’ workstation CPUs are more or less confirmed through an internal specs document leak.
AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 CPUs, codenamed Chagall, have been confirmed through Igor’s Lab’s internal specs document leak. Recently, it was reported that the AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 CPU lineup would be launching in March 2022.
AMD showcases over seventy current and upcoming AAA games that support FSR at the Game Developers Conference. In a demonstration using God of War on a Radeon RX 6800 XT, AMD achieved 57 FPS at 4K resolution with FSR enabled. This confirms that there will be no new HEDT part from AMD after the Threadripper 3000 lineup, based on Zen 2 architecture.
An AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 ‘Chagall’ SKU is revealed to have 64 cores and a whopping 256 MB cache, while the next highest variant has 32 cores with half the cache. The leak also reveals that only the flagship model will feature such high specs, followed by decreasingly lower models ending with 12 cores and 128 MB of cache.
AMD might launch a few Ryzen Threadripper SKUs earlier. However, the flagship 64 core may not be released until later. This was the case with the Threadripper 3990X.
It is possible that the next-generation line of AMD chips will be called “PRO” variants, as seen with the Threadripper line catering to the enthusiast and prosumer markets. AMD has been experimenting with workstation PRO SKUs recently, so this could be a possibility.
A launch in March 2022 would mean that AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 3000 CPUs will be pitted close to Intel’s own Sapphire Rapids HEDT family for the W790 platform.
