AMD Unleashes Unprecedented Power with Revolutionary Threadripper CPUs - Up to 96 Cores!

Introducing AMD's groundbreaking Threadripper CPUs, now featuring an awe-inspiring maximum of 96 cores Designed for those requiring an unprecedented 192 CPU threads, these processors redefine the boundaries of high-performance computing

Most modern desktop processors are equipped with multiple cores to distribute tasks, and some hybrid CPUs have specialized cores for specific functions. AMD's top-of-the-line chips can have up to 16 cores, while Intel offers an impressive 24 cores. AMD's Threadripper processors, primarily designed for media production and servers, are known for having a significantly higher number of cores compared to typical desktop CPUs. Although non-workstation versions of Threadripper CPUs have not been available since 2019 when the Threadripper 3000-series was launched with up to 64 cores, they have made a comeback and are now better than ever.

Recently, AMD announced two new series of Threadripper CPUs: the Threadripper 7000-series and the Threadripper PRO 7000 WX-series. The only distinction between the two is that PRO chips are designed for workstations and come with additional features, such as a large number of PCI Express lanes, which may not be necessary for all users. AMD has been consistently producing Threadripper PRO CPUs, including the Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-series. Therefore, the novelty here lies in the re-introduction of regular Threadripper CPUs for high-end desktops (HEDTs) after a four-year hiatus, boasting numerous improvements.

The Threadripper 3000 CPUs feature older Zen 2 cores, while the newer Threadripper 7000 CPUs come with Zen 4 cores, similar to the regular Ryzen 7000-series chips. The Threadripper 7000-series CPUs range from 24 cores and 48 threads to 64 cores and 128 threads, providing improved performance compared to the 3000-series chips. These CPUs offer impressive features such as boost speeds up to 5.1 GHz and a substantial 320MB cache in the higher-end model. It is important to note that these CPUs have a TDP of 350W, necessitating a capable power supply. Moving on to the Threadripper PRO series, it shares similarities with the regular series, but it includes a higher-end Threadripper 7995WX CPU with a remarkable 96 cores and 192 threads. This CPU boasts the same boost speeds as its counterparts and even increases the cache to an astonishing 480MB. Unlike the regular series, there is no non-PRO version of the Threadripper 7995WX available. In the Threadripper 3000-series, the highest-end CPU was the 3990X, while in the PRO series, it reaches up to the 7980X. There is speculation that AMD may release this CPU as the 7990X in the future, but this is unsubstantiated.

AMD did not provide pricing details for the Threadripper PRO series. However, the regular Threadripper chips have a starting price of $1,499 for the 7960X and can go up to $4,999 for the 7980X with 64 cores. These prices may be too expensive for most people unless they have a specific need for a high number of cores. Moreover, if you are looking for the best gaming performance, having more cores does not necessarily translate to better performance. In that case, it would be more advisable to consider AMD's latest and most advanced AM5 CPU, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, which is significantly more affordable. Furthermore, even lower-end chips from AMD are suitable for the majority of users.
