3rd and 4th Generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs Spotted In the Wild

Two different AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs have have been spotted in the wild. The first is a UserBenchmark result that was spotted by Twitter user TUM_APISAK. This result that you can see below is a 16-core, 32-thread engineering sample which has the codename “Castle Peak.” The chip runs at a base clock of 3.6 GHz and has a boost clock of 4.0 GHz.

If we compared to the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X, this engineering sample has a 100 MHz higher base clock, but a 400 MHz lower boost clock. Keep in mind that this is an engineering sample, so clock speeds are not finalized. When it comes to performance this chip has an overall performance uplift of 11%. In the single and quad-core tests it is 11% faster than the 2950X, and 18% faster when comparing multi-core performance.

Just like AMD’s other Ryzen 3000 parts the Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series will be built on the 7nm FinFET process by TSMC and will bring new features to AMD’s HEDT platform like PCI-Express 4.0. It is currently unknown if AMD plans on releasing a successor to their X399 chipset.

4th Generation Ryzen Threadripper

When it comes to 4th generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper two codenames have appeared in the AIDA64 database:

– AMD Family 19h Models 00h-0h, “Genesis”
– AMD Family 19h Models 20h-2h, “Vermeer”

The AMD Family 19h Models 20h-2h, “Vermeer” refers to Zen 3 in general (Ryzen 4000), but the other codename AMD Family 19h Models 00h-0h, “Genesis” could be referring to 4th generation Ryzen Threadripper.
