It seems that AMD is testing an unannounced Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Storm Peak processor series with high core counts. This isn’t the first time we’ve encountered an unannounced AMD processor on a volunteer processor. As it turns out, someone is using these processors to find “signals from spinning neutrons in data from gravitational wave detectors”!
A 96-core Threadripper 7000 Storm Peak processor
Recently, three OPN codes related to three AMD processors with different frequencies have been released. Putting this list next to the 64-core processor we met earlier, we can conclude that these codes are for Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Storm Peak processors:
- AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000884-21_N (96 Core / 192 Thread)
- AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000884-20_Y (96 Core / 192 Thread)
- AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000454-20_Y (64 Core / 128 Thread)
According to this screenshot, this processor has 192 “processors”, which means threads, and by that we are talking about a 96-core processor with 12 CCD units, just like the newly introduced EPYC 9004 processors. These processors should have a base frequency of 2.1 GHz and one of them should have a base frequency of 2.1 GHz. No information about boost frequencies, thermal power or cache memory size has been published.
None of these three OPN codes are available on AMD’s official website, which means that these processors have either not yet entered the mass production phase, or their supply has not yet started. It is also worth noting that AMD no longer releases new processors under the non-Pro Threadripper series. This decision was made in line with the unification of the company’s processor series, and AMD no longer separates its HEDT processors into two separate categories.
AMD has not yet announced its exact schedule for the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Storm Peak processors, but these processors will not be released before March 2023.
- Possible price of 65W Ryzen 7000 processors – from $229 to $429
- Intel and AMD are working on improved Raptor Lake and Ryzen 7000X3D processors
- AMD introduced the EPYC 9004 – Genoa processor, a $12,000 behemoth
