The latest generation of Ryzen Threadripper launched exclusively for select Lenovo systems and OEMs/system integrators earlier this year, but a handful of SKUs are now available to everyone.

As promised by AMD in a blog post from June on its community site regarding the “ultimate workstation processor,” the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series can now be found at select retailers, including Amazon, where the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5975WX is listed for $3,299. The flagship Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX, on the other hand, carries a much higher MSRP of $6,499, although a Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5965WX is also available as part of the new family for $2,399.

Here’s the official specifications for the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series, per AMD.

AMD claimed in its press release from March that these processors provide “up to 95% higher performance than workstations using two competing server processors” and “up to 43% higher graphics performance and up to 2.2x the storage performance of competing solutions” thanks to features that include “industry-leading 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes.”

They also feature some pretty huge advancements in efficiency, per AMD.

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.

AMD has seemingly confirmed that there will be no non-PRO Ryzen Threadripper SKUs going forward.

  1. 6500 bucks?! Wow... I'm sure some will sell. I've seen what some of you folks doing some deep Machine Learning and other scientific tasks have an appetite for.

    Please post your builds so we can all drool! I almost want to serve that market with custom built systems. I can't foot the bill for it though. Would need to presell systems and then deliver for x% over cost.
