Will AMD’s Zen 5 Threadripper 8000 ‘Shimada Peak’ only be launched in 2025 after all?

AMD, is reportedly planning to launch Ryzen 8000 Granite Ridge Zen 5 processors in 2024 and Shimada Peak Threadripper in 2025. This information comes from insider reports and has not been officially confirmed yet. The Ryzen 8000 Granite Ridge Zen 5 processors are expected to be based on AMD’s Zen 5 architecture and serve as the successor to the Ryzen 7000 series. They are expected to be offered in several variants, including desktop and laptop processors, as well as for servers and workstations. The Shimada Peak Threadrippers are said to be an updated version of AMD’s Threadripper processors, which are based on the Zen 5 architecture and designed for enthusiasts and high-end PCs. They are expected to come with up to 64 cores and 128 threads and will significantly outperform the current Threadripper models.

AMD continues to show its strength, according to a recent DigiTimes report that mentions a number of new processors. The new Ryzen 8000 Granite Ridge processors should be of particular interest to DIY PC enthusiasts, as they are expected to feature Zen 5 processor cores by the end of 2024. However, industry insiders believe that AMD will not switch to more advanced TSMC processes smaller than 4nm until 2026 for both desktop and mobile chips.

Above in the embed, you can see an AMD processor roadmap put together by @Harukaze5719 on Twitter. This is based on data from DigiTimes as well as additional information from YouTuber MLID. It is speculated that AMD will expand its server lineup with a new series of Epyc processors in 2025. According to insiders, this could be the first AMD chip manufactured with a 3nm technology, as there are no other chips in 3nm technology on this roadmap.

In 2025, HEDT users can hope for an update of their processors, provided that the announced Shimada Peak Threadripper processors are launched as planned. It is unclear whether these high core count chips will be based on TSMC’s 4nm or 6nm processes, but it is likely that they will be based on the Zen 5 architecture. Currently, we are still waiting for the release of the Storm Peak Threadripper CPUs, which are expected to be based on the Zen 4 architecture in the third quarter of this year.

Fortunately for mainstream desktop PC users, it’s not too long until their preferred platform gets a significant refresh. According to a roadmap based on information from DigiTimes sources, the Ryzen 8000 Granite Ridge processors will hit the market in 2024. The release is planned for late 2024, which probably means the first glimpse of the Zen 5 architecture for AMD desktop users. However, it is unclear which TSMC process node will be used (4nm and/or 6nm).

The extensive roadmap in the mobile space shows the importance of offering options that appeal to a broad demographic. Even desktop users are acknowledging the allure of the emerging Ryzen 7000 Mobile APUs, which combine the performance of Zen 4 CPU cores and RDNA 3 GPU cores in a portable TDP. With the Ryzen 8000 mobile chips, AMD will continue to be in focus when it comes to choosing a new laptop.

The Dragon Range and Phoenix Point Ryzen 7000 mobile chips will be replaced in 2024 by a more comprehensive family of Ryzen 8000 APUs, most of which will be based on the latest Zen 5 CPU cores. By 2025, all of AMD’s mobile APU options are expected to be based on Zen 5, with possibly one exception – an entry-level chip codenamed Escher. Unfortunately, it is unclear in the roadmap which GPU architectures will be used in the mobile platforms, which is a crucial aspect since these platforms usually offer limited upgrade options.

It is advisable to be skeptical about reports that are based on circumstantial evidence and rumors.

Findest du?
Für mich ist der Text als Antwoŕt auf die in der Überschrift gestellte Frage das wortreichste 'Vielleicht' bisher. Der Informationsgehalt ist - extrem nett formuliert - dürftig; inhaltlich ist das nicht mehr als ausgiebige Zeilenschinderei. Gut, das Ende ist lustig, aber: ob das so gemeint war?

Im Moment eben doch erst Mal Gerüchte. Allerdings macht es für AMD uU sogar Sinn, hier etwas langsamer zu treten: die leading edge/bleeding edge Knoten bei TSMC sind nach wie vor ziemlich teuer (Mangels Konkurrenz), und Intel hinkt zumindest bei der Fertigung nach wie vor 1-2 Jahre hinterher. Gleichzeitig sind viele Kunden auf Sparkurs gegangen. Und, angeblich scheint sich Sapphire Rapids auch nicht so toll zu verkaufen, während EPYC noch gut mit bei ist. Wie schnell AMD ihre nächsten Generationen bringt wird auch davon abhängen, ob und wann Intel bei ihren EUV Knoten ("Intel 4", "Intel 3") zu Potte kommt. Allerdings muss Team Red auch aufpassen, daß sie hier nichts verschlafen. Die etwas unbekannte Variable im Server Markt sind allerdings die neueren ARM-basierten Designs; man wird sehen, was da in den nächsten Monaten kommt.
