AMD TR5 platform for Threadripper 7000 CPU revealed by ASUS

In a recent video posted on Bilibili, ASUS General Manager Tony Yu revealed that AMD will be releasing its TR5 platform for the upcoming Ryzen Threadripper 7000 “Storm Peak” CPUs in the second half of 2023. According to previous reports, AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 7000 HEDT CPUs will be available for purchase by September of this year.

Now that the company’s representative, Tony Yu, has mentioned a 2H 2023 launch for the next-generation Threadripper chips, codenamed Storm Peak, ASUS has admitted that this may indeed be the case.

The video contrasts the AMD Threadripper Pro 5995WX processor with Intel’s recently released Xeon W9-3495X Flagship Sapphire Rapids CPU.

Both chips engage in physical combat with one another, but Intel’s Xeon CPU uses a lot more power. Although the platform has its own benefits, Tony claims that later this year, when Threadripper 7000 HEDT CPUs launch on the TR5 platform and offer more cores, more I/O, and simply better CPU performance/efficiency, those benefits may become obsolete.

Emerald Rapids with Raptor Cove cores, Intel’s upcoming Xeon lineup, is also mentioned, though it’s unclear whether or not workstation-specific versions of those chips will be available given that the most recent roadmap omitted them. But if AMD is a threat, Intel can respond later in the year with Raptor Cove-enhanced Xeon Workstation components. Launch plans for the Emerald Rapids-SP lineup call for Q4 2023.

Following is how the lineups will stack up in the HEDT segment:

  • AMD HEDT: Threadripper 7000 (5nm Zen 4) / 4-Channel DDR5 / 64 PCIe Gen 5 / 4096 SP6 Socket
  • Intel HEDT: Xeon W-2400 (10nm Golden Cove / 4-Channel DDR5 / 64 PCIe Gen 5 / LGA 4677 Socket

For the workstation segment, we have:

  • AMD WS: Threadripper 7000 (5nm Zen 4) / 8-Channel DDR5 / 128 PCIe Gen 5 / 6096 SP5 Socket
  • Intel WS: Xeon W-3400 (10nm Golden Cove / 8-Channel DDR5 / 112 PCIe Gen 5 / LGA 4677 Socket

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 HEDT CPUs will be offered in HEDT and Workstation versions. The Workstation family will compete in the top market segment with up to 128 PCIe Gen 5 lanes, 8 PCIe Gen 3 lanes, and support for 8-channel DDR5 memory, but without OC capabilities for the CPU and memory. Users will be able to overclock their CPU and memory in the HEDT segment, but the platform will also support 4-channel DDR5 memory and provide up to 64 PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes.

It is unknown if AMD will offer the full 96-core Zen 4 parts on the HEDT family, but if they do, Intel’s Xeon W-2400, which will only have up to 24 cores, will suffer a significant setback.
