Please note that this post is tagged as a rumor.

Yuri “1USMUS” Bubliy, the developer of the Clock Tuner for Ryzen tool today revealed new information on Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series. 

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series to feature 16-core SKUs

According to the message posted on Twitter, AMD will bring 16-core Ryzen Threadripper SKUs back to the platform. The current generation known as Castle Peak, only offers 24, 32, and 64 core variants.

According to other rumors, the Threadripper 5000 series might also have a different codename: “Chagall”. The Genesis Peak might refer to the platform itself, while Chagall directly to the Threadripper series. However, at this time it is not confirmed. Another theory is that Genesis is a codename for the ‘entry-level’ EPYC series which might also feature 16-core SKUs. However, we were explicitly told by Yuri that his ‘leak’ covers Threadripper as the original information mentions sTRX socket.

AMD has not revealed any details on its next-gen Threadripper platform yet, however, the current generation of Threadripper wasannounced last year at CES 2020. The CPUs launched a month later on February 7th. The series featured 64-core Threadripper 3990X which launched at 3990 USD.

The riddle is coded in HEX:

HEX: 47454e4553495320313620434f524553

ASCII: GENESIS 16 CORES

Assuming that the 16-core Genesis Peak CPU does exist, then we have a problem with SKU naming. Both previously released 16-core Threadripper SKUs were using x950X naming schema (1950X and 2950X). The last HEDT generation skipped this SKU in favor of 24+ core designs. However, AMD already released Zen3 based x950X part known as 5950X for its AM4 socket. This would mean that Threadripper either uses the same SKU name (bar the Ryzen 9 vs Ryzen Threadripper difference) or bumps the naming to 5960X. The main difference between the two SKUs would likely be limited to quad-memory support and more PCIe lanes being available to the CPU for the Threadripper part.

AMD might unveil its Threadripper 5000 series at CES 2021, which starts in just 10 days. The announcement will likely happen a lot sooner than the product launch itself. We also have no information on new motherboards, so one would guess that AMD will support Zen3 Threadripper on existing TRX40 motherboards.
