The Next-Gen AMD HEDT is reportedly called “Shimada Peak”

New Threadripper now has a name.

The Ryzen Threadripper 7000 might not be here yet, but this does not mean AMD is not looking ahead with their roadmaps. According to the report from DigiTimes, the Zen5 based Threadripper is called “Shimada Peak” and it would launch as early as 2025.

The roadmap based on the latest information was put together by @harukaze5719. It shows a gap for AMD HEDT platform next year, which is already filled with multiple Zen5 products for desktops and mobile segments. Historically, AMD tends to postpone its HEDT platform only after the EPYC series is released. The Zen4 series is an example of such product planning, with HEDT “Storm Peak” likely not appearing until second the half of 2023.

It is very likely that the next-gen Threadripper is to utilize the same socket as “Storm Peak”. AMD was quick to abandon its sTRX4 socket for HEDT systems, so the current roadmap could really use a unified socket for at least two generations of these costly CPUs.

The core configuration could heavily depend on EPYC Zen5 “Turin”, which is said to launch in the same year. It recently made the headlines after a dual 64-core system was tested in Cinebench benchmark, delivering over 123K points. Naturally, Threadripper CPU based on the same architecture would be a better fit for this benchmark.
