AMD committed itself to new versions of its Threadripper series but it's been a while since we've last heard something about these enthusiast-class processors. Now there's finally some news about the next-generation Threadrippers.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 lineup coming in August?

Citing a Twitter leak from KittyYYuko (previously known as KittyCorgi), VideoCardz writes AMD's next Threadripper lineup is codenamed “Chagall”. The new processors are expected to be introduced in August.

The Threadripper 5000 series should be compatible with existing TRX40 motherboards. Development is reportedly taking longer than expected due to performance issues with the engineering samples:
According to our information, AMD had some trouble with Zen3 based Threadripper development. The engineering samples that were tested a few weeks ago were not providing the same performance uplift as the AM4 desktop CPU series. For that reason many board partners currently do not have any information on Threadripper 5000 development, they are still waiting for an update from AMD if the series is still planned.
The Threadripper 5000 series is expected to feature similar core counts versus the current 3000 series. AMD's Ryzen Threadripper (non-PRO) lineup has not seen an update for nearly 16 months now.
