AMD ’96-Core’ Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7995WX Breaks World Record in First Ever Benchmark

Just now, AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7995WX has been tested in Geekbench. This 96-core monstrosity crushed Intel’s world record in its first attempt.

The test bench features an ‘SP5‘ motherboard from HP. The base frequency is rated at 7.97GHz (incorrect) whereas in reality the single-core frequency stands at 5.2GHz. The Threadripper PRO 7995WX is the flagship CPU from AMD’s Storm Peak lineup, packing 96 cores and 192 threads much like the Genoa EPYC 9654.

This beast packs 96MB of L2 Cache and 384MB of L3 Cache for a total of 480MB of cache. This CPU boasts 96 Zen4 cores across 12 CCDs where each CCD features 8 cores. The total main memory available on the system stands at 503.27GB.

The Threadripper PRO 7995WX scores 2095 points in the single-core test. This is somewhat slower than the Intel i7-13700K. But wait, the multi-core score stands at 81408 points.

To put that score into context, the current world record is at 72,786 points by Intel’s Xeon W9-3495X. And that is using Liquid Nitrogen. Of course, it is probable that the 7995WX was also tested under LN2. However, it is insane that the CPU made its first appearance by breaking a world record.

AMD Threadripper 7000

AMD’s Threadripper 7000 series will be divided across 2 sockets. The HEDT (High-End Desktop) models will use the SP6 socket for a total of 64 Zen4 cores. These CPUs will directly compete against Intel’s Xeon W-2400 series.

  • HEDT: 4844-pin SP6 Socket | 4-Channel DDR5 Memory | 64 PCIe Gen5 Lanes | Up to 64 Zen4 Cores
  • Workstation: 6096-pin SP5 Socket | 8-Channel DDR5 Memory | 128 PCIe Gen5 Lanes | Up to 96 Zen4 Cores

The Workstation oriented Storm Peak lineup will be based on the SP5 socket. Expect up to 96 Zen4 cores, similar to Genoa. AMD’s Threadripper 7000 series is expected to arrive in late 2023. AMD may also launch its budget Siena server offerings during the same time frame.
