Threadripper PRO 5000 Specifications

A complete filtration, that part of the OPN codes Of the different Threadripper PRO 5000 processor models that AMD will launch sometime in March next year, it has allowed us to see the full specifications of these chips. All of them will be based on TSMC’s 7nm node, and will use the Zen 3 architecture, which means that their IPC will be very high.

The Threadripper PRO 5945WX will be the input model. It will have a configuration of 12 cores and 24 threads at 4.1 GHz-4.55 GHz and will feature 64 MB of L3 cache. One notch above will be the Threadripper TR PRO 5955WX, which will have 16 cores and 32 threads at 4 GHz-4.55 GHz, and which will also have 64 MB of L3 cache. Raising the bar we will have the Threadripper PRO 5965WX, with 24 cores and 48 threads at 3.8 GHz-4.55 GHz and 128 MB of L3 cache.

At the top of the range will be the Threadripper PRO 5975WX, which will have 32 cores and 64 threads at 3.6 GHz-4.55 GHz and 128 MB of L3 cache, and the Threadripper PRO 5995WX, with 64 cores and 128 threads at 2.7 GHz-4.55 GHz and 256 MB L3 cache. All processors will have a TDP of 280 watts despite the difference in cores and threads, something that may seem curious, but which is basically linked to the turbo mode of these chips, and how it will scale depending on the workload ( and active threads).

The new Threadripper PRO 5000 processors will use the sWRX8 socket, will be compatible with the PCIE Gen4 standard (up to 128 lines) and will support 3,200 MHz DDR4 memory in configurations of eightfold channel. We do not have details about the sale price of these CPUs, so right now we can only wait for their official presentation to take place, something that, according to the latest information I have, should happen at CES 2022 (January 4).

I remind you that this type of processors are located halfway between the Ryzen 5000 and the EPYC 7003, and that they are aimed at HEDT sector. This means that they give their best in environments where we work with a high number of threads. However, thanks to the Zen 3 architecture, they also offer good single-wire performance, making them an interesting option for unifying work and play on a single platform.
