After Intel released its new generation of Xeon HEDT / Workstation processors W2400/3400, AMD seems to be releasing its new generation of thread rippers as well. The latest version of hardware monitoring software HWiNFO will provide optimized support for AMD’s new generation of thread rippers.
Last year, AMD reintroduced the original OEM-oriented Threadripper PRO 5000WX series processors to the DIY market. Moreover, AMD had made it clear that it had unified the Threadripper and Threadripper PRO product lines for enthusiasts and content creators, and that the Threadripper PRO platform would be the only one going forward.
However, with the launch of Intel’s new generation of Xeon HEDT / workstation processors W2400/3400, AMD may also enable both Threadripper and Threadripper PRO product lines to compete with Intel’s products.
According to tipster “g01d3nm4ng0”, AMD will release the Threadripper 7000 series processors codenamed “Storm Peak” later this year. The Thread Ripper 7000 series will include HEDT and workstation series, the former supports 4-channel memory, has 64 PCIe 5.0 lanes, and supports overclocking; the latter supports 8-channel memory, has 128 PCIe 5.0 lanes, and does not support overclocking.
