Just as expected, AMD have introduced not one but two new Threadripper series.

Threadripper PRO 7000 WX-Series

The Threadripper PRO 7000 WX-Series targets business and enterprise customers and offers a range of processors from an entry level 12 core/ 24 thread chip to a monstrous 96 core/ 192 chip on the high end. The WX-Series features boost clocks up to 5.3 GHz and cache up to 480MB to tackle even the most demanding of workloads.

Threadripper 7000 Series

AMD reenters the HEDT market with the introduction of the Threadripper 7000 Series. The 7000 Series targets creatives or professional users who need the additional core, memory, or other features only available to HEDT platforms. The 7000 Series offers cpus ranging from 24 cores / 48 threads to 64 cores / 128 threads. The price for such power begins at $1499 and tops out at $4999 for the 64 core high end.

Motherboard Platform

AMD additionally have introduced two new motherboard platforms to go along with their new CPUs.

The WRX90 platform supports Threadripper PRO 7000 chips with 8-Channel DD5 memory up to 2TB and features support for 144 usable PCIe lanes.

Meanwhile the TRX50 platform surprisingly supports both the Threadripper 7000 and the Threadripper PRO 7000 chips. However the TRX50 platform does feature several compromises when compared to the WRX90 platform. The most notable of which are the reduction of PCIe lanes (88 from 144) and reducing the maximum supported memory from 2TB to 1TB.

Further cementing the market segmentation, the TRX50 platform drops support for AMD’s PRO features that are primarily of interest to business and enterprise customers.

Prebuilt workstations and high-end desktops will be available from manufacturers and system integrator by the end of 2023. However based on the press release from AMD it appears that Lenovo, Dell, and HP will mainly be sticking with PRO level offerings. Most welcome news is that select PRO 7000 WX-Series and 7000 Series will be available for the DIY market starting November 21st. AMD has not yet detailed which select processors will be available.

By announcing both HEDT and PRO variants simultaneously and announcing availability for the DIY market, AMD have shown that they have listened to and address two common complaints regarding the Threadripper 5000 series.

As far as motherboards are concerned not much is known about pricing or availability on November 21st. However Gigabyte have already announced their AERO D TRX50 motherboard.
