The new Ryzen Threadripper Pro CPU family offers a high number of cores, with high clock speeds and the features that are expected from the AMD Pro line. AMD has introduced its new processor family designed for both high-performance workstations and enthusiasts with big payloads.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro is announced with more clock speeds
Perhaps the most important improvement of the new processors is the support of up to 2 TB of DDR4 memory.
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3900WX CPU family includes five models:
- Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3995WX 64-core / 2.7 and 4.3 GHz base and turbo clock
- Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX 32-core / 3.5 and 4.35 GHz base and turbo clock
- Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3955WX 16-core / 3.9 and 4.4 GHz base and turbo clock
- Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3945WX 12-core / 4.0 and 4.4 GHz base and turbo clock
The first three CPUs have slightly higher maximum clock speeds compared to the existing Ryzen Threadripper 3900 Series products, while the remaining two have a “moderate” number of cores, but with fairly high frequencies to deliver unbeatable performance per core.
Performance and comparison
All AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3900WX processors support up to 2TB of DDR4 memory using various types of DRAM modules, a significant capacity for memory-intensive workloads such as rendering or data analysis. The Threadripper series is known to have 128 PCIe lanes for high-end graphics cards, computer accelerators, and memory devices.
With its third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors with up to 64 cores, AMD clearly dominates the world of high-performance workstations and high-end desktops.
Compared to Xeon products from rival Intel, AMD emphasizes that the Ryzen ThreadRipper PRO series processors can handle more core computing modes with fewer processors, and model selection is relatively easy. It also supports new interface specifications such as PCIe 4.0, and to ensure the security of data computation, it also emphasizes that there are certain advantages in-memory configuration and control of operating performance.
