Turkish tech site Donanim Haber claims AMD will be using the Threadripper name for its upcoming line of Zen-based HEDT processors. Along with Ryzen and a couple of other names, the Threadripper name popped up a couple of months ago in a trademark filing.

It was assumed this would be the name of AMD's SMT but now the rumor mill claims it's the name of AMD's upcoming high-end desktop processors. An announcement from AMD is expected at Computex towards the end of May or early June, with retail availability expected in the second half of June.
