AMD’s Threadripper Pro 5995WX broke EPYC GPUs long-standing record in PassMark

AMD’s next-generation Threadripper Pro 5995WX is turning out to be the most anticipated CPU to be coming out later this year. Frankly, it’s the hottest news in CPU enthusiast circles right now and recently we two Threadripper Pro 3995WX  established a new CPU record in PassMark.

Coming to the sources, we have a pair of EPYC 75F3 processors that had previously held the record scoring up to 110,748 CPU marks. But the latest dual-Threadripper Pro 3995WX configuration has put up a 12% higher score and stole the crown from the EPYC chips, which is EPIC.

However, the shock doesn’t end here as the Threadripper Pro not only broke the record but also someone managed to get Threadripper Pro to run on a dual-socket motherboard — something that wasn’t meant to happen.


So coming to the record test first, we have the Threadripper Pro and EPYC chips featuring the same FCLGA-4094 package with 4,094 pins. But, the Threadripper Pro slots into the latest sWRX8 socket (Socket SP3r4), while the EPYC still resides on the original Socket SP3.

Even though both the sockets are of the same size, the connections and pin mapping are different. So, it was a surprise that someone managed to get Threadripper Pro to run on the Socket SP3. For now, we have only two entries of dual Threadripper Pro setups on PassMark.

They are the dual Threadripper Pro 3995WX system which was based around the Gigabyte MZ72-HB0, and the dual Threadripper Pro 3975WX system utilizes Gigabyte’s MZ71-CE1. Both motherboards are designed for EPYC processors and due to the design difference, Socket SP3 motherboards probably don’t have the microcode to support Threadripper Pro processors.

The Threadripper Pro lineup is turning out pretty good however it remains to be seen whether a bootleg dual Threadripper Pro system offers the same level of stability and functionality as an EPYC setup. The Threadripper Pro 3995WX (Zen 2) has a $5,489 MSRP, so we can get two of them in just under the $11,000 mark.
