Launch of AMD's upcoming Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series high-end desktop (HEDT) and Threadripper WX workstation processors, is rumored to have been delayed to 2022, according to Greymon55, a reliable source with AMD leaks. Codenamed "Chagall," these processors are compatible with existing sTRX4 and sWRX8 motherboards, based on the AMD TRX40 and AMD WRX80 chipsets, respectively. What's new, is the "Zen 3" microarchitecture.

It remains to be seen if the delay is the result of a last-minute decision by AMD to go with the newer "Zen 3" CCD that comes with 3D Vertical Cache technology, over the conventional "Zen 3" CCD; or some other reason. A 2022 launch would mean that Threadripper 5000 series will be launching around the time when Intel has desktop platforms with DDR5 memory and PCI-Express Gen 5. Threadripper 5000 chips with quad-channel DDR4 memory (four 64-bit wide channels) will be seen offering only comparable memory bandwidth to "Alder Lake" systems with overclocked DDR5 memory (four 40-bit wide channels). AMD is likely to prioritize its next "big" socket for the enterprise segment with EPYC "Genoa," as the company could find itself embattled with Xeon "Sapphire Rapids" processors that come with next-gen I/O.

Looking already scared of what they are seeing from Alder Lake benchmarks. Sapphire Rapids will smash Threadripper if it's just old Zen3 cores.
Sure bro.

The market demographic which is buying threadrippers won't hesitate to switch to a different platform if there are superior chips from Intel. The cost of churning is not dramatically higher than a new CPU alone.

Consoles take higher priority because nobody's buying OverpricedRippers anymore and they have no fab

yep. still trying to get my hands on a playstation 5. it's been frustrating. I am not paying a scalper. I'll get lucky one of these days. supply has to catch up eventually, even if I have to wait until Fall 2022.

feel like someone's username is a reference to their IQ...

completely and fully unrelated

old zen3 cores? its still pretty much the most high end thing you can buy still today.....only sapphire rapids will be newer when they are released...in the future... but we dont know a thing about its performance......

You say that but TR is a drop in upgrade which is a lot less costly then switching out literally everything

DDR4 memory (four 64-bit wide channels)
DDR5 memory (four 40-bit wide channels)
Apples to apples would be 72 bits vs. 40 bits (channel width including ECC) or 64 bits vs. 32 bits (not including ECC). ECC as part of the data bus is still optional in DDR5 and even when present, it does not increase the data rate.

I just want to point out to the double standards here nothing else, If this happened to Intel, you could see hundreds of comments mocking them, but when it happens to AMD, all those fanboys runs out of excuses.
These things can happen in tech industry just very sad to see blind loyalty.

that sentense does not really make sense because it implies that AMD fanboys are making excuses for intel or something....

other then that, what critism are we talking about? hardware being pushed back to a later date? I dont think either side attaches too much value to that tbh.

I got lucky last November and scored one. Seriously, it's not worth the hype until more games come out. I mainly play ps4 games on it still.

It would be great if they could streamline the product line and merge threadripper and threadripper pro, the prices charged and advantages make the threadripper a ripoff and threadripper pro a big discount over epic.

Exactly this. I see this as an informative news piece. Sure, the piece mentions potential future comparisons, but we don't have performance figures for those yet.

Even if AMD was "scared" of which future Intel chips it may be released alongside, and was designing these with better silicon as a preemptive response, why is that a demerit? Is competition not what we want from these companies from a consumer perspective?

Just consider it the running joke, so that we can also keep the running joke of AMD the underdog catching Intel with its pants down going at the same time ;)

Nvidia, same thing really. And isn't it funny when the meme bites them for once? Its all about having fun, these are companies, we can rise above being sympathetic for them.

Threadripper with 4-times the cores, pal. If 5600x was beating a 24 core xeon, you'd be all over it! :rolleyes:

I meaaaan....if you would still attach value for some bewildering reason to the name "Xeon"
To me you can chuck that up with Pentium and Opterion, old dated tech.

So as for me, it would be more a "ermm yeah, duh" moment if you told me a 5600x beats a 3 year old Xeon......

Boy, the fanboyism is running rampant around here! But the first dose of cure is fortunately just around the corner.

It has real value, being the only way to get ECC and other professional features on the blue side while using the exact same chips, the value of ripping of customers as it were. Team red doesn't do a lot better but the option is mostly there as long as people pay with their wallets for the board partners to validate the boards (there are a couple boards that do, but obviously they are on the expensive side)
