Asus China General Manager Tony Yu has confirmed that AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 7000 (codename Storm Peak) and new TR5 platform will hit the market in the second half of this year.

AMD's consumer (Ryzen 7000), mobile (Ryzen 7045 and Ryzen 7040), and server (EPYC 9004) lineups have all received the Zen 4 makeover and it was logical that Threadripper was pimped too.

For those not in the know, AMD uses a combination of TSMC's 5nm and 6nm process nodes for the core compute dies (CCDs) and I/O Die (IOD), respectively, in Zen 4 processors with a chiplet design

Ryzen Threadripper 700 will probably be no different what is unclear is if AMD will limit Ryzen Threadripper 7000 to 64 cores or allow it to match the maximum core count on EPYC 9004 (codename Genoa).

Ryzen Threadripper has always been a mirror image of AMD's EPYC processors regarding core counts. Of course, the feature set is different since AMD doesn't want the Ryzen Threadripper cannibalising the more expensive EPYC parts.

AMD pushed the server Zen 4 chips up to 96 cores with Genoa which was 50 per cent more than the previous EPYC 7003 (Milan) processors.
