AMD Rumored To Launch Ryzen 7 5800X3D, Threadripper PRO 5000 & EPYC Milan-X CPUs In March


AMD is planning to launch brand new CPUs from its trio of segments including Ryzen, Threadripper PRO & EPYC, all within this month.

AMD Ryzen, Threadripper, EPYC CPU Launches Rumored For March: Include Ryzen 7 5800X3D, Threadripper PRO 5000 & EPYC Milan-X

The rumor comes from Videocardz sources which have told that AMD is expected to launch CPUs from each segment in the month of March. There will be data center EPYC, consumer Ryzen, and workstation Threadripper CPUs, all launching on different dates within this month. We will know for sure soon since the first launch of the month is planned for next week.

AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ CPU Specs & Price Rumors: Ryzen 9 7950X 24/16 Core Up To 5.4 GHz, Ryzen 9 7900X 12 Core Up To 5.3 GHz, Ryzen 7 7800X 8 Core Up To 5.2 GHz, Ryzen 5 7600X 6 Core Up To 5.1 GHz

AMD Threadripper PRO 5000 - Workstation CPU Lineup

AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 5000 & Threadripper PRO 5000 CPUs have been delayed over and over again but it looks like the Zen 3 powered 'Chagall' CPU family for workstations will finally be coming to the OEM segment on the 8th of March, 2022. The CPUs will be aiming at the high-end segment of workstations and will be compatible with SP3 socket platforms while featuring up to 64 cores & 128 threads. The lineup was also previously rumored for a March 2022 launch as reported here so it looks likely to be the case and we are finally going to see the new Threadripper's in action soon!

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D - Mainstream CPU Lineup

Next up, we have the consumer-aimed Ryzen 7 5800X3D which is suggested to launch on either 14th of March or the 21st of March. Earlier, Greymon55 revealed that the CPU was shipped and could be launching by the end of this month. It could be likely that the 14th March date could be the reviewer's embargo lift while the second date could be the official retail launch. Surely, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be the only 3D V-Cache chip and it launches close to the Zen 4 Ryzen CPUs that are also expected to launch just a few quarters ahead.

AMD announces new ‘Raise The Game’ bundle amidst crypto market crash & falling GPU prices

But I believe that the 5800X3D has a really good potential of being a great mainstream solution for several gamers as upgrading only requires you to replace your existing CPU rather than investing in an entirely new platform & we know from Intel's Alder Lake lineup just how expensive DDR5 and new motherboards could be at the launch and with Zen 4 first aiming the premium segment, it looks like most gamers would call it a day and likely get the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and wait till prices and availability normalize for the AM5 platform.

AMD EPYC Milan-X - Data Center CPU Lineup

Lastly, the AMD EPYC Milan-X CPUs are expected to make a formal debut in the retail segment on the 21st of March too, so the same day as the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. The EPYC Milan-X CPUs & Ryzen 7 5800X3D are both powered by 3D V-Cache so it makes sense to have them launching on the same day. Now, these are all rumors for now but it sounds plausible and we will know for sure in a few days.
