AMD Ryzen, Threadripper, EPYC CPU Launches Rumored For March
The rumor comes from Videocardz sources which have told that AMD is planning to launch CPUs from all segments in March 2022. There will be EPYC, Ryzen, and Workstation Threadripper CPUs, all launching on different dates within this "March". The first lauch for this month is planned for the next week.
AMD Threadripper PRO 5000 - Workstation CPU Lineup
AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 5000 & Threadripper PRO 5000 CPUs have been delayed over and over again but it looks like finally the Zen 3 powered 'Chagall' CPU family for workstations will be lauched for the OEM's on 8th of March, 2022. The CPUs will be aiming at the high-end segment of workstations and will be compatible with SP3 socket platforms while featuring up to 64 cores & 128 threads. The lineup was also previously rumored for a March 2022 launch as reported and it looks like we are finally going to see the new Threadripper's come to the general public.
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D - Mainstream CPU Lineup
Next up, we have the consumer level Ryzen 7 5800X3D which is a 5800X with 3d Vcache. It is supposed to launch on either 14th of March or the 21st of March. Earlier, Greymon55 revealed that the CPU was shipped and could be launching by the end of this month. It could be likely that the 14th March date could be the reviewer's embargo lift while the second date could be the official retail launch. Surely, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be the only 3D V-Cache chip and it launches close to the Zen 4 Ryzen CPUs.
AMD EPYC Milan-X - Data Center CPU Lineup
Lastly, the AMD EPYC Milan-X CPUs are expected to make a debut in the retail segment on the 21st of March too, so the same day as the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. The EPYC Milan-X CPUs & Ryzen 7 5800X3D are both powered by 3D V-Cache so it makes sense to have them launching on the same day.
Now, these are all rumors for now but it sounds like we will come to know that if this is true in a few days.
