The Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5975WX has turned up on Geekbench with 32 cores and 64 threads. The Chagall processor has commendable multi-core performance, but rumour has it that AMD has cancelled the non-Pro Threadripper 5000 series.

Last month, the Threadripper PRO 5995WX surfaced on PugetBench, a 64-core representative of the Chagall series. Now, the Threadripper PRO 5975WX has made its way to Geekbench where it scored 27,603 points in the suite's multi-core benchmark.

The Threadripper PRO 5975WX is the next step down after the 5995WX in the upcoming Threadripper PRO series. While both processors are expected to have 280 W TDPs, the 5975WX has half the core and thread count of the 5995WX. According to Geekbench, the 5975WX has a 3.6 GHz base clock which it can boost to over 4.5 GHz.

The processor's single-core score is less than impressive, even if it is probably an engineering sample. The 3995WX outscores it, for example, as do the Core i5-11600K, Core i7-11700K and the Core i9-11900K. However, VideoCardz notes that the 5975WX outperforms the Threadripper 3970X by over 20% in Geekbench's multi-core benchmark.

Reputedly, AMD has cancelled all non-PRO Threadripper 5000 series processors. If that is the case, then the 5945WX, 5955WX, 5965WX, 5975WX and 5995WX may be the only High-End Desktop (HEDT) processors that AMD releases this generation. AMD is expected to announce the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 series before the end of the year.
