AMD has finally made the most enterprise-friendly variants of its Ryzen 3000 series official. It consists of up-to-64-core processors, as is the case with its flagship, the 3995WX. Lenovo has announced its P620 ThinkStation alongside this new line as the first workstations to run on these new Threadripper PROs.

AMD has announced the latest and possibly most business-focused variants of its Ryzen 3000 line-up. The flagship for these new Threadripper PROs is, in accordance with its recent leaks, called the 3995WX. It is a 64-core - and, thus, 128-thread - processor. It is accompanied by the 3975WX (32-core/64-thread); 3955WX (16/32) and 3945WX (12/24).

These processors also have base clocks, boost clocks, cache sizes and DRAM support much in line with their latest advance specs-spill. However, a practically synonymous launch by Lenovo was rather less well-predicted. The OEM touts its new P620 as "the world's first Ryzen Threadripper PRO workstation". Its specs confirm the fact that these processors can support no less than 8 DIMM slots.

Furthermore, each of these slots can support 64GB of memory; therefore, a P620 ThinkStation can conceivably support up to 512GB of DDR4 3200MHz RAM in total. Lenovo also blithely mentions the new professional terminal's 6 PCIe 4.0 lanes, that can support up to x16 full-height and -length 75W cards in some cases, as well as its options on up to 24GB GDDR6 NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000 graphics.

Therefore, the potential new normal for designer-grade computing may have been elevated to the extreme by this new Threadripper PRO 3000 series. However, neither AMD nor Lenovo have mentioned when their new processors or workstations will become available.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
