Recently, @1usmus, the developer of the AMD Ryzen Clock Tuner tool, released an encrypted code, indicating that after decryption, you can get clues to AMD ThreadRipper 5000 series CPU.
This code is: 47454e4553495320313620434f524553. Tech publication VideoCardz indicates that this is a piece of hexadecimal data, after being converted into ASCII code, the output result is “GENESIS 16 CORES “.
This means that the new generation of CPUs will include 16-core models, while the current third-generation Zen2 architecture Threadripper has only 24-core, 32-core, and 64-core options.
Sources said that the 5000 series of Threadripper will have a different code name called “Chagall”. The GENESIS in the decrypted information represents the name of the platform itself.
Another explanation is that GENESIS is the code name of the entry-level EPYC processor, and this series will have a 16-core CPU. However, the whistleblower later mentioned the sTRX4 interface, which is only used by the current Threadripper CPU, so it can be confirmed that the 16-core CPU in the decrypted information is the next generation ThreadRipper.
We already know that AMD’s first-generation 1900X had only 8 cores, and the second-generation 2920X had 12 cores; for the third-generation ThreadRipper, the minimum core count was increased to 24 cores.
AMD’s next-generation 16-core design is expected to bridge the gap between ordinary Ryzen CPUs and Threadripper because even the cheapest 3960X processors currently sell for as high as 1 Lakh INR plus.
