When we reported on AMD’s new Threadripper Pro 3995WX back in October we were really excited about what the processor promised.
Threadripper Pro – billed as the ultimate processor for professional workstations it has done much to live up to this name. However, the flagship has gone even further. A ludicrous 64 core, 128 threads and 2TB of memory offers truly class-leading performance. Add in the 8x channel memory architecture and to get even close to this performance via other configs you’re looking at upgrading to a dual-socket processor and the price hikes that go with it.
The 3995WX brings out the best in the much-vaunted 7nm process Zen 2 microarchitecture. We especially love the 128 lanes of PCIe 4.0 and with it the promise of all kinds of funky additives – whether you’re looking to beef-up on SSD, mix up your GFX cards, or flex on your network connectivity.
At launch, one global device manufacturer had secured a period of exclusivity for inclusion of the 3995WX in their workstations. With that moratorium over, we’re pleased to announce that the 3995WX will soon be hitting our machines. While some supply restrictions persist, we’re confident that it won’t be subject to the same stock and board shortages seen elsewhere last year.
Threadripper Pro 3995WX hitting G2 products
So, what can you look forward to from our product line-up? The 3995WX will be featuring in 1U, 2U and 3U machines, which we will be announcing shortly. It means that whatever rack mount footprint you’re looking for we’ll be able to build a real powerhouse for you based on this extraordinary architecture.
Of course, if you don’t need the brute performance on the 3995WX there are three other Threadripper Pro chips to choose between, all of which are available in select G2 Digital machines and still deliver blistering performance in their own right. With such a simple line-up, the chip selection headache that may have confronted you in the past while sizing up your workstation-class PC is actually heaps more straightforward with AMD.
Roll-on Zen 3!
With such impressive performance gains made possible, from Zen 2.0, we wait with bated breath as to what a Zen 3.0 variant might deliver. Lower end AMD Ryzen chips are already shipping from this architecture.
