As expected, and although not expected for a few more months, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro based on the Zen 3 architecture (Chagall) will be presented by AMD at CES in Las Vegas. But as often, the leaks multiply upstream of the manufacturer’s conference.
It was Igor’s Lab who sold the wick, publishing a table which details the technical characteristics of this range. There is no real surprise since both the architecture and the platform are known. We are nevertheless entitled to some confirmations, in particular on the extent of the models offered: from 12 to 64 cores.
As a reminder, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro are adaptations for workstations of EPYC processors, without the limitations of classic Threadrippers in terms of memory channels or the number of PCIe lines for example. They use a specific socket (sWRX8) and their TDP would be 280 watts for the whole range, which allows a good increase in frequency: up to 4.55 GHz peak and otherwise from 2.7 GHz to 4 , 1 GHz depending on the model (P0).
There is an astonishing mention of a 2P configuration, possible for EPYC but which was never discussed for Threadripper. Will this change? We’ll find out at AMD’s January 4th conference.
