AMD will soon release several powerful new workstation processors, dubbed the AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000, codenamed “Chagall.”
After recent rumors revealed that the CPUs will likely launch on March 8, 2022, further leaks now show detailed specifications of the new Threadrippers, including five different variants.
Igor’sLab published an internal list of the five upcoming AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 CPUs. All of these are Zen3 processors based on the sWRX8 socket, and the lineup includes models with 64, 32, 24, 16 and 12 cores.
According to the internal spec sheet shared by Igor’sLab, all CPUs should offer 8-channel DDR4 memory support, as well as 128-lane support for PCIe Gen4. These powerful chips are very power hungry as each has a TDP of 280W.
When it comes to boost clocks on these CPUs, 4.55GHz is the max. However, users will be able to adjust the power state to lower the TDP, and this will affect the maximum boost clock. While the base clock varies from model to model, they are all capped at 4.55GHz when it comes to the boost clock.
The best model in the new line of AMD workstation CPUs is called the Threadripper Pro 5995WX. It comes with 64 cores and 128 threads, as well as a 256MB L3 cache, which is the same as the previous 3995WX model. However, the new flagship CPU has higher clock speeds, offering a jump from 4.2GHz to 4.55GHz. This is most likely one of the best processors on the market.
Other variants include the 5975WX with 32 cores, followed by the 5965WX with 24 cores, the 5955WX with 16 cores, and finally the 5945WX rounds out the list with 12 cores. Only the top CPU has a 256MB L3 cache. The 32-core and 24-core Threadripper Pros will feature a 128MB cache, while the 16- and 12-core options have only 64MB of cache.
Historically, AMD has had little competition in the workstation segment of the CPU market. However, with Intel also planning to release the new Sapphire Rapids HEDT processor family early next year, things are sure to get interesting.
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 series has been long awaited – the release of CPUs has been postponed several times. Now, it looks like AMD can unveil the processors during CES 2022 in January and prepare for the launch on March 8, 2022. It will be a great year for AMD as we can also look forward to the launch of the AMD Ryzen 6000 consumer processors sometime. moment. in 2022.
