Zen 3 Comes to AMD’s HEDT Range for High-Performance Worstations

We had been waiting for its arrival since the middle of last year 2021, but successive rumors and leaks were delaying the arrival date of the new generation of high-performance HEDT processors and features for the domestic market. Luckily, today is the day that processors AMD RYZEN Threadripper 5000 are officially announced, although unlike other past releases in this Threadripper range (whose curious history we explain here) the workstation models arrive earlier. We refer to the new AMD RYZEN Threadripper PRO 5000 WX, a new family of CPUs that reach 64 cores and that are based on the already known architecture Zen 3 that gives life to the current AMD Ryzen 5000 of the “mainstream” range, both desktops and laptops. With this architecture, as we will see later, AMD promises up to twice the performance per watt of its competition.

AMD continues to direct these processors towards high-performance workstations dedicated to all kinds of tasks that require multi-core capabilities well above the usual. For example, 3D rendering, complex calculations, high-quality and high-resolution content creation, AI, etc. This is complemented by higher working speeds to also achieve performance improvements in environments that are more sensitive to working MHz than to the number of cores. But there are not only novelties in the architecture and cores, the AMD Threadripper PRO 5000 WX also include up to 128 PCI Express Gen 4 lanes, combined with 8 memory channelsmore core-accessible cache, and new technology and security improvements.

The main difference between the normal lines and the PRO lines is that the PRO range has different layers of extra protection to keep files and workflows safe, including an infrastructure management system and the promise of a minimum of 18 months of updates. of software.

Technical Specifications of the AMD RYZEN Threadripper PRO 5000 WX Series

This launch is made with five models of the range AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 Series. The most powerful model is the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX, this flagship offers 64 cores and 128 threads at a base speed of 2.7 GHz with a boost that goes up to 4.5 GHz. It is followed by the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5975WX, a model with half the cores (32 cores and 64 threads) whose base speed goes up to 3.6 GHz with the same Boost as its older brother: 4.5 GHz.

One step below we find the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5965WX with 24 cores and 48 threads at a base frequency of 3.8 GHz and the same 4.5 GHz Boost. There is also the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5955WX with 16 cores and 32 threads. As we lower the cores, the base speed goes up, and in this case we have 4.0 GHz Base with 4.5 GHz Boost. Finally, the most “modest” model, as modest as a processor in this range can be, offers 12 cores and 24 threads Zen 3 at 4.1 GHz with 4.5 GHz Boost and is called AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5945WX . All these processors maintain the TDP that the 3000 series already had, that is,280W. They also include 128 PCI Express 4.0 lanes. We leave you with the table with the specifications of the five new processors in the AMD RYZEN Threadripper PRO 5000 WX Series range to see them more directly and schematically.

Up to 64 Zen 3 Architecture cores and more L3 cache per core

If we compare it with the last generation, at least with the data that AMD has shown in the presentation. The AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX Series They introduce different innovations. The main one is the aforementioned architecture upgrade, moving from Zen 2 cores to Zen 2 cores. Zen 3.
We still have, yes, the same number of cores as the last generation of Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3000, reaching 64 cores and 128 threads in the most powerful models. Where we do win is in speed, which goes from a maximum of 4.3 GHz to a maximum of 4.5 GHz, a 200 MHz jump that adds to the IPC improvements of the architecture jump itself.

Another novelty is found in the L3 cache. Although we still have same 256 MB total L3 cachenow the core clusters go from 4 to 8 cores per cluster, so each cluster of 8 can access 32MB, and before each cluster of 4 cores accessed 16MB. Although it may appear to be the same (16 MB for 4 cores as 32 MB for 8 cores), this distribution allows a core that needs it can access twice as much L3 cache as in the last generation.
As for the PRO security platform, in these AMD RYZEN Threadripper PRO 5000 WX Series we continue to have the dedicated AMD Secure Processor technologies to prevent attacks on the CPU itself, combined with the architecture itself and the memory protection system. In addition, the AMD Shadow Stack has been added with more features and extra security. Shadow Stack is dedicated to preventing flow control attacks by comparing information on the stack to a copy stored directly on the processor to prevent unwanted changes. Memory will remain DDR4, with support for 8 channels of DDR4-3200 and support for all 128 PCI Express Gen 4 lanes is added. they are the number of cores, speed, cache, PCIe lanes, and business-specific features of the 5000 WS Pro.

Twice the performance per vario than the competition

AMD promises up to 67% less consumption per core and up to 39% more speed when rendering if we compare a AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX with two I’sIntel Xeon Platinum 8280 of the competition. In this case, achieving double the ratio in the performance/power ratio.

The architecture has been optimized to offer extra performance in different specific tasks, for example, when performing simulations in mechanical designs, the CPU libraries have been optimized to reduce resolution time. In photo-realistic renderings the rendering engines have been improved. Rendering of videos with several simultaneous frames in different threads, AI assistance in design environments, etc. are supported.

With all these improvements, AMD promises up to 2.3 times faster on certain tasks when compared to the Threadripper PRO 3000 generation. We also have performance improvements in software development environments. AMD gives two examples, when compiling in Unreal Engine or Chromium, with improvements of up to 50% compared to Intel’s Xeon W-3375 processors.

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 will arrive integrated in workstations

It seems that we will have to wait to see the “domestic” processors AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000but these versions aimed at professional systems let us see what we can expect from CPUs that represent an interesting leap in performance very oriented to specific tasks where multithreading power is key.
