Kept in mind leaker @g01d3nm4ng0 declares that AMD can launch 2 motherboard systems to sustain its next-gen Tornado Peak Threadripper CPUs, as opposed to simply one, with a workstation system as well as an HEDT (Premium Desktop computer) system for fanatics. Both systems will supposedly obtain an upgrade to PCIe Gen 5 connection, with the HEDT system sustaining 64 lanes as well as the workstation system obtaining 128 lanes. Similar to any kind of leakage, take this info with a grain of salt.
Information of AMD going back to the HEDT market is unexpected, as the business lately exterminated its very own HEDT system with the intro of its Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX CPUs, relocating the whole system to the ‘Pro’ branding for the workstation market solely. We do not what incentivized AMD to make this choice, however we believe reduced customer need was a contributing aspect.
It’s obvious that the HEDT market overall has actually seen much better days. When AMD rebooted the core-count battles in 2017 (with first-gen Ryzen), traditional customer systems saw extraordinary enter calculate abilities, with core matters matching as well as also outmatching previous-generation HEDT CPUs. This resulted in the mainstream system consuming a great deal of the HEDT market. Actually, Intel additionally left the marketplace also after Waterfall Lake-X
Nevertheless, this is not to state AMD has no factor to come back the marketplace. Actually, AMD would certainly be important to have a HEDT approach on the back heater simply in situation it deals with competitors. Months of leakages as well as reports recommend Intel is producing a brand-new HEDT system that will lastly prosper Waterfall Lake-X. If Intel completes this strategy it will certainly include a reconfiguration of Sapphire Rapids/ Sapphire Rapids-WS to target the HEDT customer base.

The leaker recommends there will certainly be a great deal of resemblances in between AMD’s brand-new as well as old HEDT systems. As an example, CPU PCIe ability is restricted to 64 lanes, as well as the system is restricted to quad-channel memory assistance– the like X399. Nevertheless, the brand-new system would allegedly include a couple of substantial upgrades, consisting of PCIe Gen 5 assistance throughout all CPU lanes as well as Gen 3 assistance for the chipset.
Unsurprisingly, the workstation version will certainly act likewise to AMD’s present Ryzen Threadripper 5000WX-supported motherboards, including the very same 8-channel memory setup. However the brand-new system will certainly obtain an upgrade to PCIe Gen 5 for the CPU lanes.
These 2 systems will certainly run AMD’s next-generation Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, supposedly codenamed Tornado Optimal. We do not recognize much regarding the brand-new chips, however AMD validated next-generation Threadripper is including the Zen 4 style as well as will certainly introduce someplace around completion of 2023 or the start of 2024.
