AMD has announced the official retail prices of Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX HEDT processors.These chips were announced in March of this year.For some time, they were offered exclusively in Lenovo's ThinkStation workstations.Recently, AMD did release the processors to retail.Image source: AMDThe recommended price for the flagship 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX model is $6499.That's $2509 more expensive than the consumer Ryzen Threadripper 3990X and $1100 more expensive than the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3995X.The 32-core Threadripper Pro 5975WX costs $3299 - $1300 more expensive than the previous generation Ryzen Threadripper 3970X and $550 more expensive than its Pro version.The younger 24-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5965WX has a recommended price tag of $2399.This is $1000 more expensive than the Ryzen Threadripper 3960X chip, which was not released in the Pro-version.Image source: Puget SystemsThe AMD company also announced that it has abandoned the release of consumer Ryzen Threadripper and now all chips will be released only in Pro variants, which differ various additional security systems for corporate users.Earlier it was reported that Threadripper Pro 5000WX processors can already be found, for example, in Chinese retail.However, the chips price turned out to be a little bit overpriced against the announced recommended price.The performance of the new processors is up to 45% higher than the competitors.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX has been retailed - more expensive than its predecessors and so far only in China
AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX processors on Zen 3 architecture have been retailed.True, AMD's next-generation HEDT chips are only available in China for now.This information, as well as pictures of the new products in the product packaging, shared by one Twitter user.Image source: Twitter / @AnhPhoneThe 64-core Threadripper Pro 5995WX flagship model is offered for purchase for 47 thousand yuan or about $7029.The mid-range 32-core Threadripper Pro 5975WX model is half the price at ¥24,000 ($3589).The younger 24-core Threadripper Pro 5965W model is priced at 17,200 yuan (about $2572).Recall that the 16-core Threadripper Pro 5955WX and 12-core Threadripper Pro 5945WX, which are also part of the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX series, will not be available as retail products.These chips will be offered exclusively by OEMs as part of off-the-shelf workstations. The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX chips are priced higher than the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3000WX (Zen 2).For example, the official price of the flagship 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3995WX is $5849 and the 32-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX is $2749.However, it should be noted that AMD itself has not announced the recommended price of the new processors.The new Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX processors support up to 2TB of eight-channel DDR4 memory, have 64 to 128 MBytes of L3 cache, support for 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes and have 280W TDP.In tests, they are up to 20% faster than their predecessors and up to 45% faster than competitors.
Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX tests: 15-20% faster than last generation and up to 45% faster than competitors
Puget Systems, a high-performance PC, workstation and server company, has tested Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX HEDT processors in several professional applications.The new series of chips, which debuted in March in workstations Lenovo P620 and recently appeared in retail, was significantly faster than its predecessors Ryzen Threadripper 3000, as well as competitors in the form of Intel Xeon W-3300.Image source: AMDA AMD itself has promised for Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX a 19 percent increase in IPC (number of instructions executed per clock), but in some tests the performance of new products was up to 35 percent higher than that of the last generation chips.The new Zen 3 cores, unified L3 cache and increased clock speeds, as the number of cores remains the same as in the previous Zen 2 series.Image source here and below: Puget SystemsDespite the same number of cores, multi-threaded performance of the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX has improved significantly over the previous generation.The 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX, 32-core 5975WX, 24-core 5965WX, 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3995WX, 32-core 3975WX and 16-core 3955WX participated in the tests.From Intel were the 24-core Xeon W-3365 and W-3345, the 16-core W-3335 and the 16-core consumer flagship Core i9-12900K (Alder Lake). In Adobe Premiere Pro, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX, 5975WX and 5965WX models were 10-20% faster than all Xeon models in the comparison, and also outperformed the previous generation Ryzen Threadripper models by 7-23%.The exception was the consumer Core i9-12900K, which scored the highest in the test.All thanks to more powerful video encoding and decoding capabilities.However, AMD chips lagged behind it by only a few percent. Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX regained the leadership in the Adobe After Effects test, outperforming all Intel chips and its own predecessors of the 3000-series. In Davinci Resolve the situation did not change.However, the difference between the performance of the processors has decreased.Despite this, all Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX models were ahead. The Adobe Photoshop test was again in favor of the Core i9-12900K.It beat everyone, including the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX flagship.In second place was the 24-core 5965WX, followed by the 32-core 5975WX, 47 points back.All this is due to the fact that Photoshop is not able to load all Ryzen Threadripper cores, and the Alder Lake chip with higher frequency and IPC level wins here. The Adobe Lightroom Classic test results can be considered a true anomaly.The 24-core 5965WX easily outperformed all rivals in this test.Even the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX took only 5th place in the ranking here and unexpectedly lost to the 32-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX and the 16-core Core i9-12900K.Perhaps Lightroom algorithms do not work well with 64-core chips, as there were no oddities in this test with models with fewer cores. The results of Cinebench R23 hardly need any further comments.In single threaded tests we expectedly see the victory of Core i9 due to higher frequency and architecture, but in multithreaded tests we have no equal with the flagship Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX - it is about 10 thousand points ahead of its predecessor. Other landmark tests were Unreal Engine and Blender.Both rely on multithreading.Overall, Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 were 12-15% faster than the previous generation models.Intel solutions lost by 35-45%.Even the 32-core Xeon W-3365 could not catch up with the 24-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5965WX. Ryzen Threadripper 5000WX series of HEDT processors can be surely called the best of its kind.Its representatives are definitely faster than Xeon W-3000 and Ryzen Threadripper 3000 models.The advantage of new processors is from 15 to 45 percent, depending on the particular test and competitor's model.This makes the Ryzen Threadripper 5000WX series of chips a very smart choice as a workstation base.They are capable of outperforming anything Intel has to offer in this segment.The exception is, as mentioned above, the consumer Core i9-12900K, which proved to be faster in some Adobe applications.But here we have to look at the needs of the user.
AMD announced Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX for retail - they will offer 24 to 64 cores of Zen 3
Debuted in March, AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX processors have been offered exclusively as part of Lenovo's ThinkStation P620 workstations for months.Dell recently said the chips will be available this summer as part of its Dell Precision 7865 workstations.AMD has announced today that the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX will soon be generally available.Image source: AMDThe Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000W will start being offered as part of other OEM workstations in July, and the chips will be available at retail later this year.However, we are not talking about the entire series of these processors, but only three models: The 24-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5965WX, the 32-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX and the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX.Recall that the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX series consists of five CPU models with 12 to 64 cores operating at frequencies from 2.7 to 4.5 GHz.The five models are based on Zen 3 architecture, offer up to 2TB of eight-channel DDR4 memory, have 64 to 128 MB of L3 cache, support 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes and have a claimed TDP of 280W. All Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX chips are designed to work with AMD sWRX80 CPU socket and motherboards equipped with WRX80 chipset, so there is a 19% increase in IPC (number of instructions per clock) over the previous Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3000WX series' Zen 2 architecture.To support the new chips you'll need to update motherboard BIOS.
