Ryzen Threadripper 5000 blazes in single core

The Benchleaks Twitter account shared the first information on the AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX, a 32 core processor that would be part of the Threadripper Pro 5000 lineup coming in the coming months. Not much information is available, but the CPUs are likely to be based on Zen 3 architecture, as are the current Ryzen 5000 for the consumer market.

The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX should be equipped with 32 cores and 64 threads, half of the future top of the range Threadripper Pro 5995WX. Given the nomenclature, this is almost certainly the successor to the Threadripper Pro 3975WX, currently one of the best CPUs for creators and professionals.

Taking a look at the data in the Geekbench 5 database, the Threadripper 5975WX Engineering Sample would have a base frequency of 3.6GHz, while operating just above 4.5GHz throughout the test. The tests were done on a platform called "Cloudripper-CGL", where CGL probably stands for Chagall, the codename of the Ryzen Threadripper 5000 family. The machine was equipped with 128GB of DDR4 RAM and used the Linux operating system.

To compare the results of Geekbench 5 with those of the Threadripper Pro 3975WX, colleagues at sportsgaming.win took 10 random scores from those in the database (Geekbench does not provide an average) and made comparisons. Comparing the scores of a single processor with an average is not ideal, but at least the idea of ​​performance differences; the result is that the Threadripper Pro 5975WX proves to be 30.5% faster in single core than its predecessor.

The multi core results were instead discarded, as they show similar performances and the scenario seems unlikely, given the differences in single core. According to the data present in Geekbench 5, the Threadripper 3970WX (consumer version of the Threadripper Pro 3975WX) averages 1285 points in single core and 22366 points in multi core; in this case, the Threadripper Pro 5975WX offers 23.4% more multi-core performance.

The well-known leaker ExecutableFix is ​​convinced that AMD has decided to cancel the Threadripper 5000 range dedicated to consumer users and the HEDT market, focusing solely on the “Pro” line. This would explain why in recent months we have not seen any rumors emerge regarding these CPUs, whether it was related to performance or the selling price. In short, it is likely that the Threadripper Pro 5000 will be exclusive to OEMs, but given what happened last March with the Threadripper Pro 3000 range, the possibility that they can also be purchased by end users is not that remote.
