It looks like AMD has plans to release a PRO series of Ryzen Threadripper processors, offering users expanded I/O options, extended memory support and a new socket for enthusiasts to play with. 

The image below of AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 3995WX first appeared on Chiphell, implying that samples for this processor are already available. However, access to this image has been restricted on the website. Thankfully, the Twitter user @9550pro has reported the picture on Twitter.  

Videocardz has stated that AMD's Ryzen Threadripper Pro series of processors will release next week on July 14th, bringing with it AMD's sWRX8 socket. This socket has been rumoured since before the release of AMD's Ryzen 3rd Generation Threadripper processors, acting as a platform which blurs the line between EPYC and Ryzen Threadripper. 

Threadripper Pro, is these reports are legitimate, will be an ultra-premium series of workstation-grade processors from AMD, offering users the sheer grunt of AMD's Ryzen Threadripper series with many of the server/workstation benefits of EPYC. Access to larger banks of DRAM and more memory channels will help feed the cores of AMD's highest core count processors with the memory capacity and bandwidth that they require. It is also possible that sWRX8 motherboards will also feature access to more PCIe 4.0 lanes than AMD's TRX40 platform, though this has not been confirmed.
