Finally, the Red team has made the new AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 5000 WX-Series workstation processors available, led by the 64-core, 128-thread AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX. After a series of leaks and rumours finally, these Zen 3 based Threadripper workstation CPUs will be available to customers.
Today also marks the launch of the first workstations powered by the new AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors – the Lenovo ThinkStation P620 featuring all five of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processor models – providing workstation users with industry-leading performance.
“For many workstation users, success is dependent on having the right tools to complete jobs quickly, which is why they need hardware that provides unmatched performance and gives them a competitive edge,” said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, client business unit. “We created the Ryzen Threadripper PRO Ryzen 5000 WX-Series processors with this in mind, bringing professionals the incredible performance and efficiency needed to run today’s most demanding workstation applications faster than ever before.”
“We have rendered an incredible amount of frames with EPYC™ server processors and a Threadripper Pro 5000WX processor. The magic is in the iterations. A single visual effect shot could have hundreds or more updates and it takes immense processing power to turn around these iterations quickly,” said Paul Lambert, two-time Academy Award winner and VFX Supervisor for Dune. “We’ve been lucky to demo the new Threadripper PRO. We’re seeing a 2X improvement on our CPU render times.”
Coming to performance, AMD says that these new Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors will provide up to double the performance of Intel® Xeon® W-3375 in a single socket. Also, the flagship AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX will provide up to 95% higher performance than workstations using two Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8280 processors, AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors deliver dominant performance on multiple workloads across the entire product portfolio.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors support industry-leading 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes, enabling more graphics and storage expandability than competing solutions. The processors enable up to 43% higher graphics performance and up to 2.2x the storage performance of Intel® Xeon® W-3300 series processors.
The Red team says that these AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors will draw 67% lower power per core deliver up to double the performance-to-power ratio when compared with Intel® Xeon® W-8280 server processors. The processor’s highly efficient “Zen 3” cores advance sustainability while delivering industry-leading performance, according to AMD.
