AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX scores 130% more than its nearest Intel rival on PassMark and can be picked up inside a Lenovo ThinkStation P620 - if you have the money
The Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX was launched back in July of this year but has kept a reasonably low profile since then, which is something of a shame as it would be interesting to see what a 64-core, 128-thread Zen 2 workstation processor can get up to in regard to synthetic benchmarks. Fortunately, the OEM-dedicated chip has now turned up on PassMark, as spotted by Tum Apisak, and it has slotted right into position at the top of the high-end CPU chart.
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX was recorded amassing a score of 88,675 points, which puts it ahead of fellow power behemoths like the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X and AMD’s EPYC 7702. If you browse through the current high-end CPU chart, after the 11 AMD parts there is the Intel Xeon Gold 6248R @3.00 GHz listed, on 38,521 points. Of course, you cannot directly compare the Threadripper PRO 3995WX with the 24-core, 48-thread server part from Intel, but the chart does demonstrate just how exemplary the performance is across the Threadripper range in this particular sector.
Being in possession of something like the Threadripper PRO 3995WX is not going to be an inexpensive affair though; for example, a Lenovo ThinkStation P620 loaded with this particular AMD processor has been listed for a tidy sum of US$18,090.39. However, many of the chips currently found on the PassMark high-end CPU chart are aimed at enterprise use (apart from consumer/HEDT options such as the Ryzen Threadripper 3970X), so you would expect a core-bursting beast like the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX to be somewhat pricey anyway.
