SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announced the new AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 5000 WX-Series workstation processors, led by the 64-core, 128-thread AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX. Building on the best-selling and award-winning Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3000 WX processors, the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors bring dominant, full-spectrum performance leadership across multiple workstation workloads due to the performance and efficiency of the “Zen 3” core architecture and increased processor frequencies.1,2 Today also marks the launch of the first workstations powered by the new AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors – the Lenovo ThinkStation P620 featuring all five of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processor models – providing workstation users with industry-leading performance.2

AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO Processors

The AMD Threadripper processor lineup redefined the workstation market when it launched in 2017, bringing unmatched core counts and multi-threaded performance for enthusiasts, prosumers and professional users. Since its first generation, AMD has continued to expand the Threadripper lineup, increasing the performance, core, and thread counts reflected in real-world success, while introducing key support and security features for enterprise users, providing the tools necessary to handle the most demanding creative and production workloads quickly and efficiently.

Building on the success of AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3000 WX processors, the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors combine the incredible performance of the “Zen 3” architecture with the enterprise security features, manageability, and scalability of AMD PRO technologies. With higher frequencies and an enhanced L3 cache architecture, the new Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors ensure users can tackle lightly threaded workloads, while also delivering leading multithreaded performance.3

Leadership Performance
Delivering up to double the performance of competing single socket solutions4 and up to 95% higher performance than workstations using two competing server processors, AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors deliver dominant performance on multiple workloads across the entire product portfolio5.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors support an industry-leading 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes, enabling more graphics and storage expandability than competing solutions. The processors enable up to 43% higher graphics performance and up to 2.2x the storage performance of competing solutions.6

Advancing Efficiency
Consuming up to 67% lower power per core, AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors deliver up to double the performance-to-power ratio of competing solutions.7 The processor’s highly efficient “Zen 3” cores advance sustainability, while delivering industry-leading performance.2

Designed to handle the most complex professional workloads, the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processor lineup delivers the ability to render and edit in 8K, develop complex simulations and designs and rapidly develop and compile code to give professionals a competitive edge and do more in less time.

Built for Professionals
Supporting the incredible performance of Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors and helping create a solution for the most demanding professionally managed IT environments, are several AMD PRO technologies including:

  • AMD Memory Guard – Encrypts memory to prevent physical attacks on sensitive data.
  • AMD Secure Processor – Integrated, on-chip security processor designed to protect sensitive data and validate code before it is executed.
  • AMD Shadow Stack – Innovative set of hardware protections built into the processor to help mitigate a common type of malware attack by preventing memory modification for instructions.

Availability
The new AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors are available in the Lenovo ThinkStation P620.

8 Max boost for AMD Ryzen Processors is the maximum frequency achievable by a single core on the processor running a bursty single-threaded workload. Max boost will vary based on several factors, including, but not limited to: thermal paste; system cooling; motherboard design and BIOS; the latest AMD chipset driver; and the latest OS updates. GD-150
9 Base frequency is the approximate processor clock speed of a typical workload running at the processor’s standard TDP. GD-166.
10 Though both are often measured in watts, it is important to distinguish between thermal and electrical watts. Thermal wattage for processors is conveyed via thermal design power (TDP). TDP is a calculated value that conveys an appropriate thermal solution to achieve the intended operation of a processor. Electrical watts are not a variable in the TDP calculation. By design, electrical watts can vary from workload to workload and may exceed thermal watts. GD-109
