Just over a week ago we discovered that AMD Threadripper Pro 5000 processors they were going to stop being exclusive to the OEM sector, although its arrival in other markets was going to take place progressively. In July they will be arriving at the hands of system integrators, and at the end of the year they will land on the DYI market, which means that we will be able to buy them loose at any authorized retailer and assemble a team totally to our liking.
Unfortunately, at that time we did not know the prices that the AMD Threadripper Pro 5000 were going to have. they weren’t going to be exactly cheap, but we did not have any official figures. The fact is that in the end AMD has decided to make public the prices that the three most powerful models will have, and the truth is that after seeing them we have confirmed that we were not wrong. The prices are high, although it is normal considering the power that these processors offer.
- AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX, configured with 64 cores and 128 threads, will be priced at $6,499.
- AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5975WX, configured with 32 cores and 64 threads, will be priced at $3,299.
- AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5965WX, configured with 24 cores and 48 threads, will be priced at $2,399.
Those prices would be converted, after applying taxes (21% VAT) and converted to euros, at 7,555 euros for the 64-core and 128-wire model; 3,834 euros for the model with 32 cores and 64 threads; and at 2,787 euros. Keep in mind that these prices are direct conversions with taxes included, and that the final official price in Europe could vary, both upwards and downwards.
AMD’s Threadripper 5000 Series lineup includes other models as well more modest with configurations of 16 cores and 32 threads and 12 cores and 24 threads, but the prices of these have not yet transpired, and it is not clear that they will reach the DIY market. This has an explanation, and that is that the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X are already available in said market, which have the same core and thread configurations, although it is true that their platform is not at the level of the one used by the Threadripper .
We will have to wait to see what AMD decides to do. In principle, nothing prevents it from launching the complete range of new generation Threadripper CPUs in the DIY market, and in fact would be something that would make a lot of sense so we have discussed the differences between platforms.
