Official Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX

AMD has officially announced new Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX processors, designed to compete with the Intel Xeon W range in professional applications, within real workstations. The new processors, codenamed Chagall, will be supplied to System Integrators and OEMs, while we do not know if they will ever arrive on the retail market, perhaps in a “non-Pro” version, to give a refresh to the Threadripper 3000WX lineup, launched almost two years ago.

The new AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX are based on the Zen 3 architecture, with all the improvements that it entails, starting with a 19% increase in IPC compared to the previous generation Threadripper Pro, based on the Zen 2 architecture of 2019. The lineup for now consists of five models, ranging from the 12 cores / 24 threads of the Threadripper Pro 5945WX to the 64 cores / 128 threads of the Threadripper Pro 5995WX. The number of cores and maximum threads does not change compared to the previous generation, as well as the TDP which remains at 280W, however on the new Threadripper Pro 5000WX the frequencies increase: from the maximum 4.3GHz of the Threadripper Pro 3000 range, here all models arrive in boost up to 4.5GHz, a factor that will further increase performance in loads that benefit from high frequencies.

Not only computing, graphics rendering or storage, but also media editing, entertainment, architecture, design, engineering: according to AMD, the new Threadripper Pro 5000WX do better than Intel's proposals in practically any professional field where you want to use a workstation to carry out your work in the best possible way. Below we leave you two illustrative graphs where the new top of the range Threadripper Pro 5995WX exceeds, in various software, a 48 core configuration consisting of two Intel Xeon Platinum 8280.

On the sidelines of the presentation, AMD has also announced a partnership with Lenovo showing the ThinkStation P620 workstation. We do not know if this is an exclusive partnership or if AMD will expand the collaborations with the other major brands, but it is reasonable to think that this second option is the most likely. The new Threadripper Pro 5000WX will be available from March 21 on Lenovo workstations and currently we do not know the list prices of the processors, but it is quite normal since they are processors designed for OEMs; we will see if, with the arrival on the market of a possible retail version, prices will be competitive.
