AMD has officially announced the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series, the latest in its family of high-performance CPUs geared toward workstation users who want to brag about how many cores their processor has. Leveraging the newer Zen 3 architecture, the new products are headlined by the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX, a chip with 64 cores, 128 threads, and a boost/base frequency of up to 4.5/2.7 GHz. There’s bad news for Threadripper fans who have a dislike for Lenovo, however, as the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series is only currently available on ThinkStation P620 machines.

“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 effects 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.”

“Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series were the best performing processors we have tested for ILM StageCraft,” said Nick Rasmussen, Principal Engineer and Architect, StageCraft, Industrial Light & Magic. “It’s significantly faster than the equivalent Threadripper PRO 3000 WX processor, and we saw up to a 2X or more speedup on CPU heavy loads versus our performance baseline. This high performance coupled with the extensive I/O capabilities makes Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series an ideal workstation processor for our cutting-edge virtual production work.”

New AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series Processors are the Ultimate Workstation Processors for Professionals with Up-to Double the Performance of Competing Solutions (AMD)

  • Building on the success of AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3000 WX processors, the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors combine the incredible performance of the “Zen 3” architecture with the enterprise security features, manageability, and scalability of AMD PRO technologies. With higher frequencies and an enhanced L3 cache architecture, the new Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors ensure users can tackle lightly threaded workloads, while also delivering leading multithreaded performance.
  • Delivering up to double the performance of competing single socket solutions4 and up to 95% higher performance than workstations using two competing server 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 an 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 competing solutions.
  • Consuming up to 67% lower power per core, AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors deliver up to double the performance-to-power ratio of competing solutions. The processor’s highly efficient “Zen 3” cores advance sustainability, while delivering industry-leading performance.
