AMD plans to release Ryzen 7000 series Threadripper processors with Zen 4 cores

During the company's latest Financial Analyst Day, AMD has confirmed that they plan to release Zen 4 based Ryzen Threadripper processors in the future as part of their Ryzen 7000 series. Additionally, AMD has also confirmed that Ryzen 7000 series processors with 3D V-Cache are also planned. 

Currently, AMD's Ryzen Threadripper series CPU lineup is a mess. The company's Threadripper Pro series has only recently been updated with new Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 series models, but their older Ryzen Threadripper series remains on Zen 2 with Ryzen 3000 series silicon. AMD's standard Threadripper platform has largely been unsupported since it launched, and Threadripper Pro has became AMD's HEDT focus. 

Thankfully, AMD's Ryzen 7000 series of Threadripper Processors have an opportunity to address the mess that is AMD's Ryzen Threadripper Product line. Hopefully Threadripper and Threadripper Pro will largely be merged into a single product line, ensuring that AMD's Threadripper non-Pro customers do not get abandoned again by AMD. Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series users expected an upgrade path, and they did not get it.

What do we expect from Zen 4 Threadripper

Currently, we expect AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processors to launch in 2023, after the release of Zen 4 EPYC and AMD's mainstream desktop Ryzen processors. Typically, AMD's Threadripper series has a similar design to AMD's EPYC series CPU models, which means that Zen 4 Threadripper CPUs could feature up to 96 Zen 4 CPU cores alongside PCIe 5.0 connectivity, DDR5 memory support, and support for up to 12 memory channels.

Like AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors and AMD's 4th Generation EPYC processors, Zen 4 Threadripper CPUs will feature CPU cores that are built using TSMC's 5nm lithography node and feature the same architectural enhancements as other Zen 4 series processors. As AMD discussed during their Financial Analysts Day (more detail here), AMD's Zen 4 CPU cores deliver an 8-10% IPC boost, higher core clock speeds, and significant performance per watt improvements. These improvements should apply to all Ryzen 7000 series processors, including Threadripper models.

Well this just got interesting. A lot of speculation was floating around that TR was going to die for TR Pro.

Considering a lot if not all TRX40 boards are EOL for MONTHS but TRX80 boards are still in production, it seemed like AMD was going to give up on TR in favor of just merging everything into TR Pro this next generation. Guess they have other plans.Quote

This doesn't really say anything about TR vs. TR Pro. The slide shows Threadripper for Zen 3, and that's TR Pro. Could be the same for Zen 4.Quote
