AMD Threadripper PRO 5000WX Series will be released in late 2022

after his debut exclusively on Lenovo workstationsand begins to expand for desktops from manufacturers like Della AMD has confirmed that it will make the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000WX line widely available at retail, while making it an option among specialty retailer chips in pre-assembled computers.

Aimed at professionals and enthusiasts in the segment known as High-End Desktop, or HEDT, the processors highlight the adoption of Zen 3 cores, with the benefits seen in the Ryzen 5000 chips, but now on a larger scale. thanks to the highest amount of cores, ideal for heavy workloads such as simulations, video rendering, 3D modeling and more.

Threadripper PRO 5000WX will be released later this year

The highlight of AMD’s announcement on Monday 20 is that the Threadripper PRO 5000WX chips will be available at retail, that is, sold alongside the optional Ryzen 5000 chips for the public. Enthusiast and professional users who need the most advanced features of the Threadripper family, and who have the resources to purchase the compatible CPU and motherboard, will be able to purchase them from specialty stores.

Apparently, as the announcement suggests, only three of the processors will be released independently, starting with the Threadripper PRO 5995WX. The top of the range is equipped with 64 cores and 128 threads, a base clock of 2.7 GHz and a boost of 4.5 GHz, 256 MB of cache and a base TDP of 280 W .

As an intermediate option, AMD will offer the Threadripper PRO 5975WX, 32 cores and 64 threads, a base clock of 3.6 GHz and a boost of 4.5 GHz, and the same 256 MB of cache and 280 W of base TDP. The commercial range is completed by the Threadripper PRO 5965WX, with 24 cores and 48 threads, a base clock of 3.8 GHz and a boost of 4.5 GHz, in addition to 256 MB of cache and a consumption of 280 W.

Another very interesting detail is that the traditional Threadripper line, without the “PRO” suffix and usually sold as a “more affordable” option for “enthusiastic gamers”, will be integrated into the Threadripper PRO line – there will no longer be separation as before.

The decision has advantages and disadvantages: on the one hand, all users will have access to advanced features such as 128 PCIe lanes, options for memory modules in 8-channel UDIMM and RDIMM formats, massive cache, l CPU and RAM overclocking, and AMD PRO suite, on the other hand, Threadripper 3000 family owners will not be able to upgrade the same motherboard, due to the socket difference, and the price of entry will be much higher.

Arrival of pre-assembled machines and wide availability

AMD’s statement further confirmed that the Threadripper PRO 5000WX will be available as processor options at specialty retailers building and selling pre-assembled machines from July, but no specific pricing has been announced. been announced. It has also not been informed if this availability will be in all markets where AMD operates, or only in certain places, such as the United States.

Other mixed news is that, as mentioned earlier, Threadripper 3000 series users who want to upgrade to the 5000WX generation will need to buy a new motherboard – the rookie family is only compatible with the sWRX8 socket and the WRX80 chipset , cannot be used on boards with sTRX4 socket.

Retail prices aren’t disclosed either, but don’t expect affordable options, especially with the merged PRO line. The latest generation flagship, the Threadripper 3990X, for example, still sells for around R$30,000, while a WRX80 motherboard, compatible with 5000WX chips, can be found from R$8,500.
