AMD presents Threadripper 7000 processors: up to 96 Zen 4 cores

The new processors AMD Threadripper 7000 they represent the latest incarnation of the processor family high-end of the company led by Lisa Su. Architecture-based Zen 4focus on the workstation market and high-end desktop (HEDT). They will be available for purchase starting next November 21st, in two different lines: Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Prointended for use in corporate environments and Ryzen Threadripper 7000a range aimed at the HEDT segment.

In another article we saw, at the time, the fascinating history of Threadripper processors. The new Threadripper 7000 represent the most recent evolution of that winning idea and confirm their identikit as desktop version of the hardware that characterizes the AMD EPYC per i sistemi server.

The goal of both Threadripper 7000 series is to deliver superior performance compared to Ryzen desktop processors, with a high core count – up to 96 in the case of the Threadripper 7000 Pro – and extended support for I/O and memory.

Zen 4 architecture and hardware configuration

The new Threadripper 7000 incorporate Zen 4 chiplets and die Separate I/O. The socket used is the innovative one LGA sTR5 4844 pin, introduced by AMD specifically for this generation of processors.

The motherboards dedicated, called WRX90 for the Pro series and TRX50 for the “non-Pro” series, are designed to fully exploit the specific characteristics of each line. There WRX90 supports 8 memory channels and offers up to 1TB of capacity for DDR5-5200 RDIMM modules; there TRX50oriented towards the HEDT market, offers 4 memory channels and 48 PCIe 5.0 lanes, ensuring a more accessible solution in terms of cost.

Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Pro: Extreme workstation performance

The Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Pro series presents itself as a powerful solution for the segment workstation, designed to meet the needs of the most demanding users. With a maximum of 96 core Based on Zen 4, these CPUs offer astonishing performance, supported by 128 PCIe 5.0 lanes and 8 channels of DDR5-5200 memory. The most significant change is the introduction of official support for the AVX-512 instruction set, allowing for a greater efficiency with intensive workloads.

A distinctive element of the Pro series is the functionality of “thread pinning“, which allows fine-grained control over thread execution at the level of specific chiplets. This technology offers a significant advantage in terms of performance optimizationespecially if you consider that these high-performance AMD processors are equipped with up to 12 chiplets.

Ryzen Threadripper 7000: AMD invest sull’HEDT

The Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series marks the return of HEDT to the AMD processor landscape. After the hiatus observed by Sunnyvale society with the generation Zen 3AMD has decided to bring back to the market a complete series of processors that focus entirely on desktop performance. The new Threadrippers are proposed as the ideal choice for those users who want performance at the highest levels but do not want or cannot face the demanding costs of server processors.

The Threadripper 7000 Series offers options that range and 24 in 64 cores, guaranteeing excellent computational power. With basic frequencies up to 3.2 GHz and up to 5.1 GHz in boostthese processors are ready to handle intensive workloads and operations in multithreading. The entry price is $1,500 to purchase the base model, the Threadripper 7960X processor.

Core / Thread Base / Boost (GHz) L3 Cache (MB) TDP PCIe
Threadripper 7980X 64 / 128 3,2 / 5,1 256 MB 350W 48 (5.0) / 32 (4.0)
Threadripper 7970X 32 / 64 4,0 / 5,3 128 MB 350W 48 (5.0) / 32 (4.0)
Threadripper 7960X 24 / 48 4,2 / 5,3 128 MB 350W 48 (5.0) / 32 (4.0)

Threadripper 7000 compared to the previous generation

Comparing the Threadripper 7000 series to its predecessor Threadripper 5000 Pro WX, a significant increase in performance emerges. The new processors have double the cores, higher frequencies and a significantly increased amount of L3 cache. The presence of slopes PCIe 5.0 in abundance (up to 128) within the die I/O (IOD) and support for memoria DDR5-5200 RDIMMs complete the picture of the aspects most worthy of mention.
