Themedia VideoCardz has shared the official specifications of the AMD Thread Ripper PRO 3000 Series CPU, and the flagship 3995WX has 64 cores / 128 threads, 128 PCIe channels, and supports 8 channels / 2TB DDR4 memory. Compared to the regular thread ripper SKUs, the PRO series is primarily aimed at the high-performance workstation market, providing a wealth of functional support such as I/O and memory.
It is reported that the AMD Thread Ripper 3000 PRO Series CPU has a total of four SKUs. It features a 7nm Zen 2 core architecture and an I/O chip with a 14nm process integrated into the substrate.
The PRO product line is distinguished from common consumer-grade thread tears for HEDT enthusiasts because they are designed to serve different markets, such as engineers, scientists, designers, and professionals.
The four models are THE PRO 3995WX, pro 3975WX, PRO 3955WX, and PRO 3945WX, as detailed as follows.
As the flagship of the series, the 3995WX features a 64-core / 128-threaded design with a total of 288MB of cache, a base frequency of 2.7GHz, dynamics up to 4.2GHz, and thermal design power consumption of 280W.
From the parameters, the PRO Series thread ripper CPU can strive to achieve a higher continuous clock frequency at the same level of power consumption. The version for consumer-grade HEDT platforms is designed to soar higher frequencies over a given TDP range.
Other features of the PRO 3000 Series Thread Tears CPU include 128 PCIe 4.0 channels (double the average thread tearer) and the sought-after 8-channel ECC memory support (up to 2TB UDIMM/RDIMM/LRDIMM).
The flagship 3975WX features a 32-core / 64-thread design with a total of 144MB of cache. The base frequency is 3.5GHz, with a dynamic up to 4.2GHz, and a thermal design power consumption of 280W.
Of course, the PRO 3000 Series Thread Ripper SKU retains support for 8-channel DDR4 memory / 128 PCIe 4.0 channels.
The third 3955WX features a 16-core / 32-thread design with a total cache of 72MB. The base frequency is 3.9GHz, dynamics up to 4.3GHz, and the thermal design consumes 280W.
The fourth 3945WX features a 12-core / 24-thread design with a total cache of 64MB. The base frequency is 4.0GHz, with a dynamic up to 4.3GHz, and the thermal design consumes 280W.
Clearly, AMD is looking to stay ahead of the workstation market with the 3000 PRO Series Thread Ripper SKU and Intel’s vPro competition, while offering a wider range of scaling options, including more core/thread numbers and better memory feature support.
Unfortunately, AMD has not disclosed the price of the new product. Interested friends, please also keep an eye out for the July 14 announcement of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3000 Series CPU.
