The possible next-generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor just showed up in the database of the Geekbench test. Twitter user momomo_us discovered an entry of a Sharkstooth processor with an id of "100-000000011-11 32C/64T" and model number "AuthenticAMD Family 23 Model 49 Stepping 0."

The chip features 32 cores, 64 threads and is clocked at 3.6GHz. In Geekbench, the multi-threaded performance of this prototype chip is about 18.5 percent higher than a Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX:
The prototyping platform, which is a motherboard designed in-house by AMD to test the processor's various components and I/O capabilities, is codenamed "WhiteHavenOC-CP." In this Geekbench submission, the processor is paired with around 128 GB of memory, and tested on 64-bit Linux. The platform yields a multi-threaded score of 94,772 points, which is about 18.5 percent higher than what a Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX typically manages when tested on Linux. It is also within 5% of what the Xeon W-3175X manages (around 99,000 points). The production model could be clocked higher.
The new Threadripper is expected to be introduced in October.
