AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX to Debut with a Lenovo Workstation

AMD's 64-core HEDT processor with an 8-channel memory interface, the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX, could debut in a Lenovo-branded workstation. Lenovo's Workstations division recently tweeted a big workstation announcement for 14th July, 2020, the same day AMD is expected to announce the 3995WX. "A new Lenovo workstation is coming soon, and we aren't going to just change the game. We plan to change the rules," the tweet reads. This is also a major hint as to the availability of the 3995WX. It won't surprise us if the processor will be an OEM-exclusive (if not a Lenovo-exclusive). The Threadripper PRO 3995WX, in addition to the Ryzen PRO feature-set, reportedly features an 8-channel DDR4 memory interface, doubling the memory bandwidth over that of the current retail-channel flagship 3990X.

Curious to see what kind of cooling solution this system will use for that chip...

These major OEMs aren't exactly known for spectacular cooling solutions...

Knowing Lenovo, they'll probably use a drab OEM-looking 280mm AIO supplied by Asetek or Deepcool.

Ryzen PRO for desktop are extremely rare. It will be interesting to see if Lenovo do it right. I mean, good security implementation and good cooling will be a decent choice for me.

This is very doubtful, market for such a CPU is larger than Lenovo can supply.

That depends on wether it's an actual workstation or just a tower desktop.

If I know Lenovo right out from this article it's gonna be in their ThinkStation series line up which is Lenovo's WorkStation line up.

@btarunr I haven't seen any of Lenovo's ThinkStations with an AIO solution sadly even their Xeon's are air cooled sold a few at work and they are actually quiet on air without being toasty under full load.
