Just a few days after Intel unveiled its latest 14th Generation Raptor Lake Refresh desktop processorsAMD today unveiled the latest Threadripper 7000 series desktop processors. AMD now aims to redefine the high-end processor market with this range, allowing people to significantly accelerate computing performance in any task – whether architecture, design or content creation. So let’s take a look at the new features of AMD’s new Threadripper 7000 series CPUs for desktop platforms!
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series Desktop Processors: Details
As the name suggests, the AMD Threadripper 7000 is the company’s latest series of high-end desktop processors. The total number of cores, threads and overall computing performance are much higher on Threadripper compared to your standard consumer-oriented chips like the Ryzen 9. So yes, this is the true beast when it comes to CPU power, competing with the likes of Intel’s Xeon series.
AMD says their Threadripper processors are primarily used in the entertainment industry for film production. According to the company, they exist Wire ripper 5995WX chip is already a leading chip, delivering 37% better Autodesk Maya performance compared to the Xeon W-3495.
The new Threadripper 7000 series looks forward to further innovating and opening a new ceiling when it comes to CPU performance. David McAfee, a Corporate VP at AMD, says the company never stops pushing the boundaries, which is why today their new Threadripper 7000 high-end desktop processors are launching.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WX: up to 96 cores and 192 threads
The Threadripper Pro 7000 WX series offers up to 96 cores and 192 threads. This is at the top Ryzen Threadriper 7995WX model, which has a boost clock of 5.1 GHz and a whopping 480 MB total cache. The TDP of this chip is 350W.
Speaking of the processor architecture, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WX CPUs are built on industry-leading Zen 4 architecture by AMD. The production process used here is 5nm, and these processors support DDR5 memory up to 8 channels. These processors also offer up to 48 PCIe 5.0 lanes.
AMD has confirmed that upcoming PCs from companies like Dell (Precision Workstations), Hewlett Packard (HP Z Series Workstations), and Lenovo will feature the new Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WX series processors. The processor variants among the Threadripper Pro 7000 series are described below:
|CPU variant||Total core and wire count||Clock speed (base/boost)||Total cache||TDP (Thermal Design Capacity)|
|96 cores, 192 threads||5.10 GHz (boost) / 2.50 GHz (basic)||480MB||350W|
|Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7985WX||64 cores, 128 threads||5.10 GHz (boost) / 3.20 GHz (basic)||320MB||350W|
|Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7975WX||32 cores, 64 threads||5.30 GHz (boost) /4.0 GHz (base)||160MB||350W|
|Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7965WX||24 cores, 48 threads||5.30 GHz (boost) / 4.20 GHz (basic)||152MB||350W|
|Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7955WX||16 cores, 32 threads||5.30 GHz (boost) / 4.50 GHz (basic)||80MB||350W|
|Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7945WX||12 cores, 24 threads||5.30 GHz (boost) / 4.70 GHz (basic)||76MB||350W|
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series: up to 64 cores and 128 threads
The non-Pro range of Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processors is also quite impressive. The top model offers up to 64 cores and 128 threads, being the Ryzen Wire ripper 7980X, has a boost clock speed of up to 5.10 GHz. By the way, this processor costs an eye-watering $4,999 in the US, so it’s definitely one of those computer parts that is so high-quality that an entire PC could be built well under the price of this single CPU product.
AMD says the Threadripper 7000 series will deliver the ultimate overclockable high-end desktop experience. The performance and efficiency potential are maximized thanks to the 5nm-based Zen 4 architecture. This setup supports up to 48 PCIe 5.0 lanes, the same as the Pro series. Below are the CPU variants under the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series and their respective prices.
|CPU variant||Total core and wire count||Clock speed (base/boost)||Total cache||TDP (Thermal Design Capacity)||Price (USD)|
|Ryzen Threadripper 7980X||64 cores, 128 threads||5.10 GHz (boost / 3.20 GHz (base)||320MB||350W||$4,999|
|Ryzen Threadripper 7970X||32 cores, 64 threads||5.30 GHz (boost / 4.00 GHz (base)||160MB||350W||$2,499|
|Ryzen Threadripper 7960X||24 cores, 48 threads||5.30 GHz (boost / 4.20 GHz (base)||152MB||350W||$1,499|
As you can see, the latest Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series desktop processors are no joke. There are two motherboard chipsets which AMD has said is compatible – one is the WRX90 and the other is the AMD TRX50 chipset. The WRX90 is said to have support up to 2 TB DDR5 5200 MHz RAMwhile the TRX50 supports this up to 1 TB DDR5 5200 MHz RAM. These processors also come with AMD’s latest technologies such as AMD Pro Business Ready Support, AMD Shadow Stack, overclocking support and more.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series: Availability
The new AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series desktop processors are available from November 21, 2023 when it comes to DIY stores as an individual CPU product. AMD has also confirmed that by the end of 2023, many system manufacturers such as Dell, HP and Lenovo will begin shipping systems with the Ryzen Threadripper PRO WX series processors.
