Which CPU models will have long term market availability?

At my company, we are looking to specify the requirements for a new workstation that is sold with our test equipment as the controller for the tester. Due to customer impact, we must be able to provide the same workstation for a long time (5 to 7 years).

In the Intel world, the CPU's have an attribute you can use as your selection criteria called "embedded options" which means that model will be available for a minimum of 5 to 7 years from its launch date. I cannot seem to find any similar information on the AMD processors (specifically we are interested in the ThreadRipper or EPYC processors).

Does anyone know how to tell which models are guaranteed to be available for purchase for several years?

Thanks.
