AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3rd Gen ‘Sharkstooth’ CPU with 32 Cores Spotted, 20% Faster than 2990WX

AMD’s next generation of Zen 2 Threadripper CPUs may have leaked online on Geekbench. TechPowerUp spotted an entry of a 32-Core, 64-Thread processor with a clock speed of 3.6GHz and some extremely impressive performance metrics.

This next-gen Threadripper will be based on the Zen 2 microarchitecture and a part of the ‘Sharkstooth’ family. Titled as “AMD 100-000000011-11”, it was tested on a prototype board codenamed as “WhiteHavenOC-CP”, which was also used to test the 2nd generation of threadripper processors. It was paired with 128GB of DDR4 memory and tested on a 64-bit Linux kernel. While it comes in with a base clock of 3.6GHz, consider it with a pinch of salt as being an engineering sample, the final retail model will probably launch with a different clock.

While it can’t be confirmed whether the processor in question is actually a Zen 2 Threadripper, it’s highly unlikely that AMD is testing another line-up of CPUs. The recently-announced EPYC Rome server chips don’t match the specs of this chip, and hence, we can take the liberty to refer to these benchmark leaks as the Threadripper 3000 CPUs.

The Zen 2 Threadripper scored 5677 points in single-core and 94772 points in multi-core results which is a whopping 18.5% faster than the 2990WX under similar test conditions.

Internally referred to as “Castle Peak”, the 3rd generation of Threadrippers is expected to launch on the 7th of September. The ridiculously high metrics on the leaked benchmarks are at par with the expected performance increase with the 7nm process and the Zen 2 microarchitecture. Expect the new CPUs to be compatible with the TR4 socket, a TDP of 250W and priced similarly to the last-gen Threadripper 2990WX at $1,699.

  1. I would have thought that with AMD going the PCIe 4 Route that they may have doubled the infinity fabric and used a few of the extra socket pins to enable PCIe 4 and DDR 5 on the next gen TR it’s a case of wait and see I guess but that’s what I would have expected with all of their other CPU product headed that way, even if it meant a new chip set.
