AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 series specifications leak with a new 24-core option
VideoCardz has leaked specifications for five upcoming Threadripper PRO 5000 series processors, ranging from 12-core to 64-core parts. Seemingly cribbed from an official slide deck, the image below reveals the processor's names, core and thread count, TDPs and various clock speeds. As benchmark results showed last year, AMD's flagship parts will be the 5975WX and 5995WX. Also, only Threadripper PRO processors exist; there are no regular Threadripper 5000 parts.
For some reason, the entire Threadripper PRO 5000 series features 4.5 GHz boost clock speeds and 280 W TDPs. However, the 5945WX has the highest base clock speed at 4.1 GHz, which gradually steps down to 2.7 GHz when you reach the 5995WX. Incidentally, the Threadripper PRO 5000 series follows the core and thread count of the 3000 series, with 16-core of 32-core processors sandwiched between the 5945WX and 5995WX that have 12 and 64-cores, respectively.
AMD has added a 24-core offering with the 5965WX, though. Conversely, it has elected against releasing a 48-core option, which could have been the 5985WX. According to VideoCardz, the Threadripper PRO 5000 series will debut in a new ThinkStation P620, which Lenovo is yet to announce. For reference, the Threadripper PRO 5000 series utilises Chagall cores based on AMD's Zen3 architecture. All SKUs should support 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes and 8 channels of DDR4 RAM. Unfortunately, a release date remains unknown at this stage.
