Expect huge core counts and huge prices

AMD's Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 series is now available to everyone

AMD's Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 series of processors launched back in March, but back then these CPUs were exclusive to Lenovo's Thinkstation systems. Since then, AMD has broadened the availability of these processors, making them available to broader and broader sections of the PC market, and starting now, these processors are available to DIY customers. 

With up to 64 Zen 3 cores, 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes, 8 DDR4 memory channels and clock speeds that boost up to 4.5 GHz, AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series can deliver insane levels of multi-threaded CPU performance and a huge amount of connectivity. These CPUs will support AMD's WRX8 series motherboards, allowing Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series customers to upgrade to AMD's Zen 3 CPU architecture. 

Starting today, we have seen three Threadripper PRO 5000 series processor hit the PC market, with Scan UK being the first retailer to stock these processors. First off, we have the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5965WX, a 24-core 48-thread processor that's priced at £2,349.98. Next up there is the 32-core 64-thread Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5975WX that costs £3,249.98. For those who need AMD's highest levels of multi-threaded performance, AMD has their Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX, a £6,399.98 processor that features 64-cores and 128-threads.

With AMD's Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 series being on the horizon, one has to wonder how long it will take for AMD to launch Ryzen Threadripper PRO series processors that will be based on the company's new Zen 4 CPU architecture. We don't expect to see new Threadripper processors from AMD until the second half of 2023, as we expect AMD to launch high core count EPYC series processors long before AMD pushes out a new HEDT (high-end desktop) PC platform. If it took this long for AMD to release their Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 series to DIY customers, don't expect to see next-generation Threadripper processors anytime soon.
