AMD annuncia i chip AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WX e Threadripper 7000

AMD has announced its processors for professionals, AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WXbut surprisingly also announced its return to the High-End Desktop chip market with AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000. Maximum power for those who work and for those with high computational demands.

In a presentation event dedicated to the press, AMD explained to us all the power behind its new Threadripper chips. But to do this we started with those who will use these processors, which come in both versions for professionals (Pro) that for l’High-End Desktop (HEDT).

For professionals, AMD thinks of four verticals: the virtual production in the media production sector (special effects in films, for example), the simulation in engineering automotive and in thearchitecture (to analyze the aging of structures with LiDAR or photo-scans), artificial intelligence. And he explains to us that Threadripper Pro’s performance allows professionals to EA, Epic Games, Aston Martin, Dreamworks and a thousand other big companies to do what they do best.

The new Threadripper Pro 7000 WX brings up to 96 cores and 192 threads at our disposalwhich exploit architecture Zen 4 to deliver results across the entire performance spectrum. They can have up to 128 PCLe Gen5 to connect GPUs and to train AI. And AMD developed them with professionals in mind: security, management, robustness.

A big generational step

Compared to the Zen 3 generation, performance increases across the board. THE maximum cores increase from 64 to 96 coreswith maximum passing peak frequency da 4,5GHz a 5,3GHz. Furthermore, there is PCI 5.0 support and the L3 cache increases from 256MB to 384MB.

These impressive data come on the flagship processor, model 7995WX, which simply has no comparison with the last generation in terms of number of cores. But there are five other CPUs (from 7945WX up to 7985WX, with the third progressive digit), dwith 12 to 64 cores and with powerful maximums above 5 GHz.

Comparison with the competition

AMD explains to us that with these chips, performance increases across all workstation tasks, even when choosing chips with the same cores. Both for those who use software that use many threads and for those who require high single-thread performance. By doing a comparison with the Intel Xeon W-3400 series, there are more cores and threads (56/112 versus 96/192), higher frequency (4.8Ghz and 5.3Ghz).

The 128 PCI3 5.0 lanes allow configurations with multiple GPUs allow you to optimize AI algorithms and train them before going to the cloud. Taking advantage of the Unreal Engine offers 50% better performance than rivals, graphics rendering is 223% better. You’ll make 3D models 20% faster in Revit, reality capture 52% better. Design software runs up to 45% faster, simulation up to 39% – depending on the software.

These results, which will then need to be verified independently, lead us to say AMD that can beat the competition across the board, with chips with a similar core count. Also because in all four industries, there are many software certified or co-developed with AMD.

AMD works with Dell, HP, Lenovo and SuperMicro globally, but also with many local system integrators, to bring these very powerful chips to professionals as soon as possible.

HEDT models

AMD has decided to return to the top-of-the-range processor market in the desktop market too, for those who need very powerful performance, without all the advanced configurations for professionals. So, AMD decided to separate the chipsets into Pro Platform and HEDT (High-End Desktop) Platform, the first called WRX90 and the second TRX50.

The desktop version it will not have Pro features for management that large companies require. Furthermore, it will have memory configurations four channels instead of eight, plus fewer PCIe lanes. In fact, if the Pro line reaches 148 total and 144 usable, the HEDT line reaches 92 and 88 – with 128 5.0 in the Pro line and 48 in the HEDT line. Both have the possibility of overclocking.

The most powerful among the HEDT chips will be Threadripper 7980X, con 64 core (There are also 7970X from 32 cores and 7960X of 24, both of 5.3GHz maximum and 350W). According to AMD data, it beats the competition all-round. Furthermore, AMD promises that the new Threadrippers allow di save on average 27 minutes of productivity every hour of work.

They all have the new Zen 4 architecture, better efficiency and an improved SoC. Here comes DDR55200with 480 MB L2+L3 cache compared to the 5000 generation.


After today’s announcement, the processors will hit shelves on November 21, 2023. For the Pro line we currently have no specific information on prices (company procurement channels usually make it difficult to establish a fixed price). However, we have them for the HEDT line:

  • AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7960X it will cost $1,499
  • AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7970X it will cost $2,499
  • AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7980X it will cost $4,999
