AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX-Series Spec Leak

AMD's Threadripper Pro WX or workstation processors are set to finally join the 5000-series of AMD CPU's if the latest leaks are to be believed. It would seem that AMD is planning no less than five new SKUs, or one more than the current 3000-series of workstation chips. The new entry is a 24 core, 48 thread chip, which was lacking from the current range. As such, the entire series will consist of 12, 16, 24, 32 and 64 core options, all with twice as many threads. All chips have a common 4.5 GHz peak turbo clock, but the base clocks vary by quite a bit, depending on the core count.

The 12 core 5945WX has a base clock of 4.1 GHz, with the 16 core 5955WX coming in at 4 GHz, the 24 core 5965WX then drops to 3.8 GHz, followed by the 32 core 5975WX at 3.6 GHz. Finally the 64 core 5995WX is said to only muster a base clock of 2.7 GHz. All five CPUs have a TDP rating of 280 Watts. The new Threadripper chips are expected to work in current boards that sport a WRX80 socket. As such, PCIe lanes and memory support is expected to remain the same as for the 3000-series.

Cool to see some news on Threadripper, not like I'm going to be purchasing any of this, but serious question is that picture using FSR on performance mode?

Seriously thinking of moving over to a 5955 from my current 5950X if its a reasonable price.

I've already got investments in RAM on the DDR4 platform, and if with 3D cache performance is as good as what AMD has been saying, the addition of I/O would be welcome.

Hopefully nobody cares about the 5965’s cores or threads lol

The power of interpolation and rounding to something 2^n.

I think we're still in the dark regarding the presence or absence of that cache. Having a range of products both with and without it would be the logical way to go for AMD, some customers will find the cache priceless, others may prefer higher clocks and lower price instead.

If I had a dollar for every pixel in that picture, I'd have 25c.

And of course, other news outlets are all "64 core, 4.5GHz!"

The lack of 5985WX (with either 40/80 or 48/96 c/t) annoys me for some reason.

I'm always being conservative when it comes to Megahurtz.

2,400bps you mean?

So much for "threadripper is abandoned". People should understand that most of those chips don't go to DIY nerds that have some extra cash, they go to corp buyers. My employer is only right now finishing their long validation process for the next gen of workstations they provide for engineers and those will have the current Zen2 TR. New CPU generations every 1-2yr are a feature for enthusiasts, but a bug for IT managers, even in tech companies that move faster than most.

Ha! They've still got numbers 5996 .. 5999 spare!

Well, these are all WRX80 and not TRX40. TRX40 is starting to look abandoned.

You all seem like smart commentators. I have a question and some of it seems like it's answered here... I'm a Gen1 - 32 core owner and I'm thinking that for my next upgrade I would prefer to have less cores than more. I realize my Gen1 had limitations in cache and I'm hoping that my new purchase this year would be focused more on throughput vs 128 core system. What would be the best system to purchase? I've got my eyes the 48 core. I don't mind purchasing all new Ram and I also have 2x 3090 Ti's for rendering (Redshift).

The yields are far better then expected. Less non functional cores. They all go to Ryzen anyway.

Good point, however, WRX80 has advantages that I'd want in a system running a beast of a 5995WX CPU: RAM up to 8-channel, way more PCIe lanes. I hindsight, the middle-of-the-road "enthusiast" TRX40 platform was not a long-lived idea since it's now too squeezed between increasingly powerful desktop systems (Alder Lake or upcoming Zen4) and increasingly accessible full-workstation-class (you get get a Lenovo P620 with a 3945WX from $2K, although of course that price can grow very fast with workstation-class amounts of RDIMM ECC RAM + storage + high-end professional GPU etc.).
