New leaks hint at upcoming 96-core Zen 4 Threadripper 7000 series CPUs
Next-gen Threadripper CPUs are going to be HUGE

AMD's next-gen "Storm Peak" Threadripper Pro CPUs could feature up to 96 cores
It looks like someone's testing unreleased Threadripper CPUs from AMD, allowing three unknown CPUs to appear on the [email protected] database. These CPUs were spotted by @BenchLeaks and are said to have 192 threads (96 cores), and base clock speeds of 2.0 GHz and 2.1 GHz respectively.
These two processors are likely to be engineering samples for AMD's next-generation Threadripper PRO platform, what should become the Threadripper PRO 7000 series. Rumour has it that this new Threadripper platform is called "Storm Peak", and it will deliver many of the same improvements that AMD's 4th Generation EPYC processors offer. More cores, DDR5 memory support, PCIe 5.0 support, and more.
With 96 total cores, AMD's next-generation Threadripper PRO processors will offer the same core/thread count as their EPYC Genoa series of processors. Threadripper PRO will likely offer consumers higher core clock speeds than their Genoa counterparts, though this remains unconfirmed.
With AMD's next-generation of Threadripper PRO processors, AMD will be moving to a new motherboard platform. This time, AMD are also unlikely to release both Threadripper and Threadripper PRO series processors, and should combine both ranges under the Threadripper PRO brand. Simply put, there is little reason for AMD to fragment the market with Threadripper and Threadripper PRO, as it adds complexity to the CPU market with no real benefits for AMD.
