The AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX processors introduced in March have been offered exclusively as part of Lenovo’s ThinkStation P620 workstations for several months. Dell recently announced that these chips will be available as part of its Dell Precision 7865 workstations this summer. AMD today announced that the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX will be available to the public soon.
Starting in July, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000W will be offered as part of non-OEM workstations, and the chips will be available in stores later this year. We’re not talking about the entire series of these processors here, just three models: the 24-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5965WX, the 32-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX, and the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX.
Recall that the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX series consists of five processor models with a number of cores from 12 to 64, operating at frequencies from 2.7 to 4.5 GHz. They are based on the Zen 3 architecture, offer support for up to 2 TB of eight-channel DDR4 memory, receive 64 to 128 MB of L3 cache, support 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes and have a declared TDP of 280 W.
All Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX are reported to have a 19% increase in IPC (instructions executed per cycle per cycle) compared to the Zen 2 architecture of the previous Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3000WX series.
Like the previous generation, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX chips are designed to work with the AMD sWRX80 processor socket and motherboards equipped with the WRX80 chipset. To support new products, you need to update motherboard BIOS.
