There's a palpable buzz in the tech community, and it's all about AMD's latest release: the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series and the PRO 7000 WX-Series.

These are not your run-of-the-mill processors; they're redefining what we expect from our workstations and high-end desktops, catering to the needs of power users and professionals, which means they are hot on our radars.


The PRO 7000 WX-Series: More Cores, More Better

With up to 96 cores and 192 threads powering through your most complex projects, from 3D masterpieces to massive data analyses, these chips promise to do it without breaking a sweat.

But it's not just about raw power. They come with AMD's PRO technologies, adding a layer of security and manageability that's becoming essential in both professional and private computing these days.


The 7000 Series: Reinventing the High-End Desktop

For those who love to push the envelope on desktop computing, the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series is like a dream come true. Take the 7980X, for example, with its 64 cores and 128 threads, it's clear AMD is all-in on breaking new ground. And with support for up to 48 PCIe 5.0 lanes, these processors are ready to be the heart of the most ambitious setups, ensuring you can plug in the latest and greatest in GPUs, storage, and more.


AMD's Vision: More Than Just Chips

Jack Huynh, the head of AMD's Computing and Graphics Group, sees the Ryzen Threadripper series as a key piece of the puzzle in AMD's quest to push the boundaries of what's possible in computing. These processors are designed not just with an eye on today's benchmarks but with a vision for a future where efficiency and reliability are paramount, especially in the demanding context of HEDT and workstations.

Getting to Know Threadripper Again

Now that we’re all excited about these chips, let’s get to know the range a little better, starting with the Threadripper PRO 7000s.

Apart from those eye-watering TDP numbers, the core counts are also impressive. Even the lowest specification Threadripper processor will have no fewer than 12 cores, putting the era of the eight-core workstation firmly behind us, and not a minute too soon!

Motherboard Mayhem

Of course, a CPU is useless without a motherboard to put it in, and there are two motherboard platforms for these CPUs, one of which can only accommodate Threadripper PRO models, namely the AMD WRX90. Here are the finer details.
