AMD has officially unveiled the highly-anticipated AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WX-series processors, and they're making a grand comeback to the high-end desktop space with the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processors.
Crafted with professionals and businesses in mind, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WX-Series processors take the previous generation's performance and features and crank it up a notch for the workstation world. These powerhouses are built on 5nm "Zen 4" architecture, so it's decent enough for demanding professional tasks and juggling complex multitasking jobs – think Revit model creation. When it comes to multithreaded workloads, the Threadripper Pro processors pack up to 96 cores and 192 threads, the most cores of any workstation processor for complex simulation, generative design, rendering, and software compilation tasks, where you can see up to two times faster performance in tools like Chaos V-Ray.
Additionally, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WX-Series processors come packed with 384MB of L3 cache and eight channels for DDR5 memory. This makes them perfect for applications that demand both high memory capacity and bandwidth. You can get your hands on these processors through OEM and SI partners, and a selection of models will also be available through the channel. AMD is going all out to make sure these processors are perfectly optimised for a wide variety of workloads through their collaboration with ISV partners. Plus, with the help of AMD PRO technologies, they've got a complete arsenal of features that modern businesses absolutely need.
The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WX-Series processors will be up for grabs later this year. Not just that, they'll also be available through OEM partners like Dell Technologies, HP and Lenovo.
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series processors, on the other hand, marks their return to the enthusiast desktop realm for the first time since 2020. The Ryzen Threadripper 7980X processor is said to deliver the ultimate computing power in the enthusiast desktop category, especially when it comes to multi-threaded performance. These processors are also powered by the AMD "Zen 4" architecture and come with 48 PCIe 5.0 lanes at the disposal of desktop users. To top it off, they offer up to 64 cores and 128 threads.
