AMD may have delayed the plan of releasing the Ryzen 5000 series earlier slated for November 2021. There are rumors from a renowned leaker who claims that the release of AMD’s Zen3 Threadripper CPU for consumer desktops has been delayed out of 2021.
The leaked information mentions “Chagall” being delayed to next year which is nothing. But a codename attached to AMD’s 5000 series Threadripper processors. Here’s the tweet that talks about it.
Some of Gigabyte‘s information was out when a ransomware gang hit the manufacturer. The leaks included information about future hardware, the highlight of which was the Threadripper 5990X SoC. And according to that, it is suppose to have 64 cores and 128 threads. Along with 256 MB of L3 cache, 64 PCIe 4.0 lanes, and 4-channel DDR-3200 memory. These cores are similar to the ones found on Threadripper 3990X. And at the same time, don’t mention anything about 5000 series Threadrippers’ clock speeds.
We also got to learn about two Pro-model 5000 Threadrippers from AMD. These were Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX and a Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5945WX. The former was a 64-core, 128-thread processor, while the latter had 12 cores and 24 threads. These are workstation models and are likely to launch in 2022.
