AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX benchmarked on Sharkstooth-CGL reference platform with 64 cores
More signs of AMD's next-generation Ryzen Threadripper series have leaked online. This time, the Threadripper PRO 5995WX has appeared on PugetBench. The Threadripper PRO 5995WX is believed to be AMD's flagship Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series processor, for reference.
Unfortunately, the lack of equivalent benchmark results makes it improbable to draw any conclusions about the Threadripper PRO 5995WX's performance. We have included screenshots below in case you wish to compare the processor against others, though.
PugetBench has confirmed the Threadripper 5000 series' reference platform, which has not been seen before. According to the two listings, the Threadripper PRO 5995WX runs on an AMD Sharkstooth-CGL platform, with CGL presumably an abbreviation of Chagall. The reference platform is a Socket WRX80 motherboard that AMD already utilises for current Threadripper PRO processors.
Currently, AMD is expected to launch the Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series in Q4 2021, having reputedly slipped from an August 2021 announcement. Apparently, AMD could release up to eight SKUs, with five Threadripper PRO models and three regular Threadripper processors. All are believed to offer 280 W TDPs with Zen 3 cores on a 7 nm process.
