Hardware insider momomo_us has once again uncovered unannounced AMD products. In a recent tweet, they revealed two new CPU families in the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series. The "Storm Peak" processors were first mentioned in May when CPUID released version 2.06 of CPU-Z, which included "preliminary support" for the new series. Experts predict that the Zen 4-based Ryzen Threadripper 7000 range will disrupt the workstation and HEDT markets when it launches in Q3 2023.
According to leaked listings shared by momomo_us on social media, AMD's PRO "79x5WX" family will cater to future workstation PCs, while non-PRO "79x0X" variants will be best suited for HEDT systems. Previous leaks suggest that the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7905WX "workstation" range will be compatible with AMD's SP5 socket. This high-end platform is expected to support 8-channel DDR5 memory and up to 128 PCIe Gen 5 lanes and 8 PCIe Gen 3 lanes, but it lacks CPU and memory overclocking functions.
On the other hand, the Ryzen Threadripper 7900X HEDT range is expected to offer full overclocking support for CPU and memory. However, tipsters believe that its appeal could be limited by the platform's SP6 socket, which is restricted to 4-channel DDR5 memory configurations and a maximum of 64 PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes, as seen on AMD's EPYC 8004 "Siena" family.
