This week, we’ve seen several documents leak detailing some of AMD’s upcoming CPU plans. The latest leak concerns the upcoming Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series and its specifications, with some SKUs packing 64 cores with up to a 280W TDP.
According to images shared by Wccftech, the Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series will be divided into HEDT processors using the sTRX4 socket and Workstation processors using the sWRTX8 socket. These processors will be available with up to 64 cores and a maximum TDP of 280W.

The HEDT processors will be available with 64, 32, and 24 cores, all with an IOD (I/O Die) power rating of 80W. The Workstation chips will come with 64, 32, 24, 16, and 12 cores and an I/O Die power rating of 110W, 85W, 80W, 75W, and 62W, respectively. According to the documents, the difference in the IOD power rating of both segments is because the Workstation processors will support 8-channel memory and 128 PCIe Gen4 lanes.
Measurements of the chiplets and I/O dies were also included. As it seems, there are some variations between the upcoming processors and the Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series chips. However, the CPU package and the LGA socket will have the same size as their predecessor, which came to be expected if these CPUs are to be compatible with TRX40 and WRX80 motherboards available now.
Currently, AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series processors are expected to launch in September.
