AMD has confirmed the pricing of its Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors, a new generation of workstation chips that leverages the Zen 3 core architecture to deliver greater performance and efficiency for professional users. A list obtained by Tom’s Hardware can confirm that the flagship Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX with 64 cores is officially priced at $6,499, followed by the Threadripper PRO 5975WX and Threadripper PRO 5965WX, which cost $3,299 and $2,399, respectively. AMD’s new family of Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors also includes two lower-ended SKUs in the form of the Threadripper PRO 5955WX and Theadripper PRO 5945WX, but these will only be available through pre-built OEM systems. The Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX, Threadripper PRO 5975WX, and Threadripper PRO 5965WX are expected to release for the DIY market later this year.

The standard and ‘Pro’ Threadripper lineups existed separately, but AMD’s announcement last week explicitly states that these two will now be one and the same. “[…] There will be one set of Threadripper processors to choose from, with one CPU socket and chipset, and every processor will be based on AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO silicon.”

Make no mistake, the Pro chips carry pricing premiums not only in the silicon but also in the platform. You’ll pay more for the motherboards and shoulder the cost of populating eight memory channels as opposed to the four memory channels found on the non-Pro models. Sure, you could simply not populate four of the memory channels to save some cash, but regardless, you’re still paying the premium for eight channels in the chip and motherboard pricing, so that seems a waste.
