AMD Ryzen Threadripper HEDT CPUs to Release in 2022 [Rumor]

Last Updated on December 21, 2021 by Amrit Chatterjee

AMD Ryzen Threadripper HEDT CPUs are developed based on Zen 3 core architecture. Rumours are coming out that that it will release in March of 2022.

This new Zen 3 powered AMD Ryzen Threadripper HEDT CPU has already been through several changes in dates. Even a few sources tell us that the entire lineup will no longer come to the market.

A few recent reports stated that the lineup will be released sometime in the upcoming year, 2022. It was supposed to release in the fourth quarter of 2021, but unfortunately, it did not happen.

The codename that has been fixed for the new CPU from AMD is Chagall. The news is that this lineup will enter the markets on the 8th of March, 2022.

It was earlier mentioned that the new lineup of AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 will come equipped with the Zen 3 cores. There are also reports that we will have five SKUs that will be launching in the market for the pro users and other enthusiasts.

The company will have two families when these CPUs are launched, including new technologies. These families are – Vermeer-X, which will make use of the 3D V-Stack Cache chipset design, and Rembrandt, which will make use of the Zen 3+ cores.

There are chances that we might not get to see both of them in the lineup of Chagall Threadripper. However, some action would not be something unexpected from the HEDT family because it took some time.

Apart from this, we also saw the Threadripper PRO 5945WX and 5995WX CPUs benchmarks sometime back. Several specifications of these CPUs have also been reported a month before.

Moore’s Law is Dead had brought us with another rumour that the company might launch the newer generation Threadripper in two variants- standard and 3DX (3D V-Cache).

There is a high chance that we might get to see AMD venturing into the route for 3DX with Milan X chips (they have also leaked out recently).

These latest CPUs will be priced higher than the Zen 2 lineup. This is very much expected because we saw a rise in price in the Ryzen 500 CPU models as compared to the Ryzen 3000 CPU models.

There is a chance that AMD might come up with a few new Ryzen Threadripper SKUs and then launch the 64 core later. During the launch of the Threadripper 3990X, the exact same strategy was followed.

AMD is now experimenting with several PRO SKU workstations. Thus there could be a few chances for us to see that the upcoming line of chips might be the Pro type as Threadripper will not cater to the needs of the enthusiasts and prosumers.

If the release date is in 2022, then the AMD Ryzen Threadripper HEDT 5000 CPUs will provide good competition to the Intel family of Sapphire Rapids HEDT for the W790 platform.

The HEDT CPUs were launched by both Intel and AMD back in 2019. AMD has been able to get hold of the market steadily. However, Intel has been struggling to get hold of its HEDT market since the beginning.

This competition will be noticed again in 2022, with the AMD Ryzen Threadripper HEDT competing with the ones from Intel. Both of them will be bringing new core architectures for the particular platform.
