Gigabyte WRX80 SU8 with 8-channel memory for sWRX8 CPUs

Back in January, we were still trying to figure out if the WRX80 chipset is even real. Despite numerous leaks, there has been no confirmation from AMD that such a chipset even exists. Fast forward to July and the company announces the Threadripper Pro 3000WX series and an exclusive partnership with Lenovo.

The ThinkStation P620 by Lenovo was to feature a brand new WRX80 motherboard. As far as we know, the boards used by those workstations are of AMD design.

Today we have a picture of a custom WRX80 design from Gigabyte to share. This motherboard is called WRX80 SU8, which is a server motherboard exclusively for the AMD Threadripper PRO series.

Gigabyte WRX80 SU8 supports up to AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX, which is a 64 core 280W CPU based on sWRX8 (4094) socket. Unlike the Threadripper non-PRO series, the WRX80 platform features 8-channel memory support.

The series also supports up to 128 PCIe lanes, a double of what the non-PRO series do. This might be important as this WRX80 motherboard features seven PCIe Gen 4 x16 slots.

At the time of writing, no other specs were known, neither was the price or release date.

 

A quick look at Lenovo ThinkStation P620 reveals that AMD reference design had fewer PCIe x16 slots than Gigabyte’s:
