AMD Threadripper PRO 5000 and EPYC "Milan-X" will be available in March
It's going to be a busy March for AMD, as the company will release three different products for its processor lines. The first, which we previously reported on, says the Ryzen 7 5800X3D Socket AM4 8-core/16-thread processor will be available in late March, which AMD claims to deliver Core i9-12900K-level gaming performance.
Apparently, the company is ready to release workstation processors for the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 series. Designed for socket sWRX8 motherboards based on the only chipset available, the AMD WRX80, these are the first Threadripper products based on the "Zen 3" microarchitecture, with 8-channel DDR4 memory and up to 128 PCI-Express Gen4 lines. The first off-the-shelf workstations will arrive as early as next week on March 8. At this point, it's still not known whether these chips use the newer "Zen 3" CCD with 3D vertical cache or the regular "Zen 3" CCD with a 32MB level 3 planar cache. There are also the ambitious AMD EPYC "Milan-X" processors, which are essentially server processors in the SP3 package, that use the "Zen 3" CCD with vertical 3D cache, which is 100 MB total cache per CCD, and 800 MB total cache for the 64-core/128 thread model. AMD claims that 3DV Cache offers generational performance improvements with multiple streaming options, and the appeal of direct compatibility with existing SP3 infrastructure may attract customers for these processors ahead of the next-generation "Genoa" EPYC, which uses the next-generation "Zen 4" microarchitecture and I/O, but needs a new socket.
