AMD is once again selling their top-of-the-line processors in the Threadripper series, with the introduction of both the Threadripper 7000 and Threadripper Pro 7000 for business and professional users (previous Zen 3 series only had Threadripper Pro 5000, no non-Pro models).
The Threadripper 7000 series features Zen 4 cores, manufactured on a 5nm process, with support for up to 48 PCIe lanes, a maximum of 64 cores/128 threads, and a TDP of 350W. There are three sub-models in this series:
1. Threadripper 7980X: 64 cores, 128 threads, 320MB cache, priced at $4,999.
2. Threadripper 7970X: 32 cores, 64 threads, 160MB cache, priced at $2,499.
3. Threadripper 7960X: 24 cores, 48 threads, 152MB cache, priced at $1,499.
The Threadripper Pro 7000 series has a total of six sub-models, including the flagship Threadripper Pro 7995WX, which boasts a staggering 96 cores, 192 threads, and 480MB cache. In addition, there are lower-end models such as the Threadripper Pro 7955WX (16 cores, 32 threads) and the Threadripper Pro 7945WX (12 cores, 24 threads).
The Pro series processors are not available for retail purchase; they are sold exclusively through OEM partners and system integrators. Some of the known partners include Dell Precision, Z by HP, and Lenovo.
Furthermore, AMD has also released two new motherboard chipsets for the Threadripper 7000 series: the AMD TRX50, which supports both regular and Pro processors (48 PCIe lanes), and the AMD WRX90, which supports only Pro models (128 PCIe lanes).
TLDR: AMD has launched the Threadripper 7000 and Threadripper Pro 7000 processors, featuring Zen 4 cores and up to 128 threads. The Pro series is available only through OEM partners, and new motherboard chipsets have also been introduced to support these processors.
