AMD’s Threadripper PRO 5000 series to launch in March?

The high end desktop market has been rather quiet in recent times. Intel’s Cascade Lake processors aren’t competitive and it’s been over two years since the launch of AMD’s Threadripper 3000 series, topped by the insane 64-core 3990X. We’ve been hoping to see a Zen 3 version, and if the rumor is true, we could be seeing next-gen Threadripper in early March. But it’s been a year since 5000 series AM4 processors launched. Is it too late?

The leak comes from a source via Videocardz, stating very specifically that the new CPUs will launch on March 8th, with an announcement likely at CES in early January. However, the report claims that only Pro versions are coming for now. It’s unknown if non-Pro consumer versions will arrive at some point in the future.
