We are just a week away from the launch of the Zen 4-powered AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000WX CPUs so today we are going to talk specs.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000WX CPUs Come In 6 Flavors, All Zen 4 Powered For Multi-Threading Insane Performance
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000WX CPU family will be based on the Zen 4 core architecture and feature six SKUs. All four SKUs are designed to offer record-shattering performance & bleeding edge efficiency.
Starting at the top, we have the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7995WX CPU which will offer a total of 96 cores, 192 threads, and up to 384 MB of L3 cache. This chip will offer a 2.50 GHz base clock & a boost clock of up to 5.15 GHz. This gargantuan of a chip will have 50% more cores/threads versus the Zen 3-based 5995WX while running at 14% higher clock speeds at a 25% higher TDP (350 vs 280 Watts).
Next up, we have the AMD Threadripper PRO 7985WX, 7975WX, 7965WX, featuring 64/128, 32/64 & 24/48 configurations. While the 7985WX runs at a base clock of 3.20 GHz, the other two chips will be operating at 4.0 – 4.20 GHz at the base frequency while all chips boost up to 5.35 GHz. The cache counts are maintained at 256 MB, 128 MB, and 96 MB, respectively.
Lastly, we have the two entry-level solutions which include the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7955WX with 16 cores & 32 threads plus the 7945WX with 12 cores & 24 threads. These chips have the highest-rated base clocks of 4.5 and 4.7 GHz, respectively, while boost clocks are rated at up to 5.35 GHz. All chips operate at 350W TDPs and feature support for DDR5-4800 and up to DDR5-5200 memory. You can get up to 2 TB capacities on the Storm Peak platform while the PCIe Gen5 lanes range from 64 to 128 depending on the chip SKU and motherboard.
Expect the following improvements from next-gen Threadripper chips:
- New Zen 4 Core Architecture
- Up To 96 Cores / 192 Threads
- New TRX50/WRX50 Platform (Storm Peak)
- Up To 350W TDP Designs Across All SKUs
- 8-Channel & 4-Channel DDR5 Memory Support
- Up To 128 PCIe Gen 5.0 Lanes
- Up To 384 MB of L3 Cache / 480 MB Full Pool
- Up To 75% Faster Than Threadripper 5000WX
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000WX CPU family is expected to launch on the 19th of October or next week. Prices are yet to be determined but we expect these chips to cost a slight bit extra over their predecessors.
On the motherboard front, most manufacturers are targeting the unveiling of their TRX50 series in November so we might see limited availability in the DIY channel for at least a month. ASRock & Gigabyte TRX50 motherboards are already confirmed and we can also expect a solution from ASUS.
