Zen 4 Threadripper spotted, 96 cores, 384MB L3, 96MB L2 cache

O Threadripperech Storm Peaki.e. the next generation with kernels Zen 4, hasn’t been talked about much yet. Like the soon-to-be-announced fourth-generation Epyc, it will feature 5nm processor chiplets attached to a 6nm communication chiplet. This September, a record of this Threadripper appeared for the first time in the already mentioned database, but it was a 64-core configuration.

Zen 3Chagall12-647nm+12nm
Zen 4Storm Peak?-965nm+6nm

Two new entries from 96-core models have been added to the database, so we have confirmed not only ongoing work on the new generation, but also up to a 96-core configuration:

  • AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000884-21_N (96 cores / 192 threads)
  • AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000884-20_Y (96 cores / 192 threads)
  • AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000454-20_Y (64 cores / 128 threads)

Basic parameters such as chiplet configuration and cache capacity will apparently not differ from Epycs Genoa, which means up to 384 MB L3 cache and up to 96 MB L2 cache per socket. What would gamers give for 384MB of RAM at the time of Diablo II (and five years earlier for a 384MB HDD :-)…

However, the release date remains a crucial question. The website Tom’sHardware states that: “According to AMD’s roadmap, the company plans to release this CPU in the first half of 2023”, but such a roadmap to look at.

AMD’s officially published roadmap from the middle of this year does mention Threadripper with cores Zen 4, but we cannot read a year, let alone a specific half-year, from it. I would not rule out an announcement in the spring in connection with Computex 2023, and availability will follow in late spring or the first half of summer. I would not consider the more optimistic time scenarios very likely.
