AMD brings Ryzen Threadripper back to the desktop: The manufacturer has introduced a total of nine models of the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series, with up to 96 cores. At least three CPUs appear as HEDT versions for the desktop
AMD has long been rumored to be planning the return of desktop ThreeDripper processors. More recently, AMD buried the HEDT area (high-end desktop) with the Threadripper 5000 series because there was no recognized market potential for it. Instead, the manufacturer focused entirely on the workstation sector. Now, however, the Threadripper HEDT is returning to the market, as AMD is launching three new desktop Threadrippers on November 21st.
AMD Ryzen 7 7700X3D
AMD Ryzen 7 700X3D is the manufacturer’s gaming flagship with 3D cache. The CPU for Socket AM5 offers 8 cores and 16 threads with clock speeds up to 5 GHz. CPU is currently available for approx 405 euros (buy here) For purchase.
Ryzen Threadripper 7000: Up to 64 cores on the desktop
There will be models with launch time in the market 24 core, 32 core and 64 core Where the current Gen 4 architecture (Ryzen 7000) is used. So HEDT models have “only” 8 CCDs in maximum configuration, while Pro models for workstations come with 12 CCDs. Also, there are more adjustments to save costs. So we hope 48 usable PCIe 5.0 lanes As well as a memory interface with four channels. This is intended to make cheaper motherboards possible, as the structure doesn’t have to be as complex as pro solutions. According to AMD, the boards will cost less than $1,000.
Socket sTR5 with Threadripper Pro support
It comes as a platform LGA socket sTR5 is used, which has 4,844 pins similar to the SP6 socket. A special feature of the HEDT platform is that the new PRO CPUs can also be used on it. This means that up to 96 cores can theoretically be used on the platform, although memory will still be limited to four channels. DDR5 memory should also be supported with clock speeds in excess of 5,200 MHz.
Although AMD is trying to keep production costs “low”, the new platform is certainly not really cheap. For Ryzen Threadripper 7960X with 24 cores, approx 1.499 USD Because, the Threadripper 7970X costs $2,499 The top model, the Ryzen Threadripper 7980X, with 64 cores and 128 threads will cost a hefty $4,999.
Threadripper 7000WX Series: What Intel Can Pack In?
In addition, six workstation models will be released, which are said to offer a significant jump in performance. Up to the new Pro CPU 96 gen 4 corThanks for the hyperthreading Up to 192 threads will stay There are always 128 PCIe 5.0 lanes, eight memory channels and a large cache. At the same time, the clock speed has been significantly increased compared to previous models, even up to 800 MHz in the single-core Turbo. Multicore clock rates range between 400 and 500 MHz. However, TDPO has increased and is now there At 350 watts.
In the first benchmarks created by AMD itself, the new Pro CPUs perform significantly better than their predecessors. The performance increase is therefore up to 46 percent. Two 64 cores were compared Threadripper Pro 5995WX and Threadripper Pro 7985WX. The Intel Xeon w9-3495X also beat selected benchmarks by up to 123% However, these results should still be viewed with caution; The first independent examination is expected for November 20
