Threadripper Pro 7000WX-Series Vs 7000 Series – What’s the Difference?

In this article we explore the Power of AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper: Unveiling the Distinction between Pro 7000WX-Series (Pro WRX90) and 7000 Series (TRX50).

Threadripper Pro 7000WX-Series has been meticulously crafted for professional workstations catering to users with a demand for superior performance in tasks such as graphics editing, 3D rendering and scientific simulations. Distinguished by a substantial core count, these processors stand out in the professional realm, excelling in multi-threaded workloads.

On the other hand, the Threadripper 7000 Series is a pivotal component of the consumer-oriented processor lineup, addressing the needs of enthusiasts and gamers seeking exceptional performance in gaming, content creation, and other resource-intensive tasks.

Mirroring the Pro 7000WX-Series, the Threadripper 7000 Series boasts a high core count, delivering commendable multi-core performance.

All Threadripper processors, renowned for their elevated core counts, simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) support, and advanced features, are specifically designed to meet the demands of intensive multitasking and parallel processing workloads.

Competitive Positioning: The AMD Threadripper 7000 series stands tall against competitors like the 4th Gen Xeon W-3400 series processors. Intel’s top-of-the-line Xeon W9-3495X, a 56 core/112-thread processor, already faced formidable competition from the previous-gen Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5990X with 64 cores/128 threads. The new Threadripper 7980X widens this gap, asserting AMD’s supremacy in the HEDT (High-End Desktop) segment.

Clock Boost and Specifications: The Threadripper 7000 processors boast a significant clock increase of 500 MHz over the 5000 WX-Series, coupled with instruction per clock (IPC) improvements from the Zen 4 architecture. This promises a substantial per-core performance enhancement.

Multithreaded Power: Threadripper PRO processors deliver up to 64 cores, ideal for multithreaded simulations and rendering. Additionally, these processors feature high-frequency cores tailored for lightly threaded workloads, ensuring optimal performance across diverse tasks.

Cache and Memory Capacity: Threadripper PRO processors offer up to 384MB of L3 cache and can support up to eight channels for DDR5 memory. This configuration is especially beneficial for applications requiring high memory capacity and bandwidth.

The Threadripper 7000 processors the 7980X, 7970X, and 7960X offer varying core configurations to suit different performance needs. All processors support four memory channels, 92 PCIe lanes, and are overclockable.

Performance Claims: AMD proudly asserts the Threadripper’s superiority over Intel rivals, emphasising the potential time savings for professionals. The Threadripper PRO chips are touted to save users 27 minutes every hour, solidifying their position as the go to in the high-end desktop computer market.

Details below outlines some of their differences:

All processors support four memory channels and 92 PCIe lanes, and as the X in their name indicates they are all overclockable.
