Some rumored specifications about the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series hit the web. This chip is codenamed "Chagall" and is expected to hit the market in August. MoePC got its hands on a leaked piece of a slide. The site claims the Threadripper 5000 series will have no changes in terms of the number of cores and that the architecture will be Zen 3-based, and not Zen 3+ as some rumors claimed.

Besides the upgrade to the Zen 3 architecture, one of the only other changes listed on the slide is the upgrade of the Inter-Chip Global Memory Interconnect (xGMI). The current Threadrippers do 16GT/s while the upcoming "Chagall" parts promise 18GT/s. This is similar to the EPYC 7003 series "Milan" server processors.
According to the latest rumors, Threadripper 5000 could debut in August with availability expected in September.The series are to offer up to 64 cores and 128 threads, but SKUs with 16 cores are supposedly also considered. Full specs of Chagall have not yet been confirmed though. -- VideoCardz
