In a significant leap forward in the computing world, AMD has unveiled its latest line of high-end desktop (HEDT) processors, the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 X series, and its professional counterpart, the Threadripper Pro 7000 WX series. These processors are redefining performance expectations with their support for DDR5 RAM and an increased number of PCIe 5.0 lanes.
The HEDT processors are a force to be reckoned with, supporting four channels of DDR5 RAM, with a capacity of up to 1 TB of memory, and offering up to 92 PCIe 5.0 lanes. This series is not just about raw power; it’s about providing users with the speed and capabilities needed for demanding tasks and high-performance computing.
Not to be outdone, the Pro series takes it a step further. These chips support eight memory channels, can handle an impressive 2 TB of RAM, and offer a staggering 148 PCIe 5.0 lanes. This level of performance is geared towards professional users who require extreme multitasking capabilities for intensive applications and workloads.
Both the HEDT and Pro series are equipped with AMD’s cutting-edge Zen 4 cores, housed on either 8 or 12 chipsets. The HEDT lineup is headlined by the 64-core Threadripper 7980WX, accompanied by the 32-core Threadripper 7970WX and 24-core Threadripper 7960WX, each offering a balance of power and efficiency for various high-end computing needs.
The Pro series, however, is led by the powerhouse 96-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX, with a clock speed of up to 5.1 GHz and a massive 384 MB of L3 cache, making it a behemoth in the realm of professional computing. The series also features five more versatile Pro models, catering to a range of professional needs and workloads.
