Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX benchmarks: 15-20% faster than the previous generation and up to 45% faster than the competition

Puget Systems, a manufacturer of high-performance PCs, workstations and servers, has tested the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX HEDT processors in several professional applications. The new series of chips, which debuted in March in Lenovo P620 workstations and recently appeared on the market, turned out to be much faster than its predecessors Ryzen Threadripper 3000, as well as competitors in the face of Intel Xeon W-3300.

AMD itself promised a 19% increase in IPC (the number of instructions executed per clock) for the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX, but in some tests it turned out that the performance of new products was up to 35% higher than that of the chips, who had done this past generations. Credit goes to the new Zen 3 cores, unified L3 cache, and increased clock speeds as the core count remains the same as the previous Zen 2-based series.

Despite the same number of cores, the multi-thread performance of the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX has improved significantly compared to the previous generation. The tests included Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX with 64 cores, 5975WX with 32 cores, 5965WX with 24 cores, Ryzen Threadripper 3995WX with 64 cores, 3975WX with 32 cores and 3955WX with 16 cores. From Intel came the 24-core Xeon W-3365 and W-3345, the 16-core W-3335, and the 16-core consumer flagship Core i9-12900K (Alder Lake).

In Adobe Premiere Pro, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX, 5975WX, and 5965WX were 10-20% faster than all Xeons in comparison and outperformed the previous generation Ryzen Threadripper by 7-23%. The exception was the consumer Core i9-12900K, which achieved the highest score in the test. All thanks to more powerful video encoding and decoding capabilities. However, AMD chips only lag behind by a few percent.

The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX’s lead returned in the Adobe After Effects test, ahead of all Intel chips and its own 3000-series predecessors.

In Davinci Resolve the situation has not changed. However, the difference in processor performance has been reduced. Nevertheless, all Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX models were ahead.

The Adobe Photoshop test was again behind the Core i9-12900K. It outperformed everyone including the 64-core flagship Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX. The 24-core 5965WX was second, followed by the 32-core 5975WX, 47 points behind. All of this is due to Photoshop not being able to load all the cores. Ryzen Threadripperand here the higher frequency and IPC level Alder Lake chip wins.

The results of the Adobe Lightroom Classic test can be considered a real anomaly. The 24-core 5965WX easily outperformed all competitors in this test. Even the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX only took 5th place here, unexpectedly losing to the 32-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX and the 16-core Core i9-12900K. It’s possible that Lightroom’s algorithms don’t work well with 64-core chips, as there weren’t any anomalies with models with fewer cores in this test.

The results of Cinebench R23 practically need no further comment. In the single-threaded test, the Core i9 won here, as expected, due to the higher frequency and architecture, and in the multi-threaded test, the flagship Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX was no equal – it was about 10,000 points ahead of its predecessor.


Other landmark tests included Unreal Engine and Blender. Both rely on multithreading. In general, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 was 12-15% faster than the previous generation models. Intel solutions lost by 35-45%. Even the 32-core Xeon W-3365 couldn’t catch up with the 24-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5965WX.


The HEDT processors of the Ryzen Threadripper 5000WX series can confidently be called the best of their kind. Its representatives are definitely faster than the Xeon W-3000 and Ryzen Threadripper 3000 models. The lead of the new processors ranged from 15 to 45 percent, depending on the test and competitor model. This makes the Ryzen Threadripper 5000WX series of chips a very reasonable choice as a basis for workstations. They are capable of surpassing anything Intel is willing to offer in this segment. The exception, as mentioned above, is the consumer Core i9-12900K, which was faster in some Adobe applications. But here it is necessary to look at the needs of the user.
