Yesterday, AMD officially announced the Threadripper 7000 lineup, the flagship of which is the Threadripper PRO 7995WX. You can read our article about that here. As the chips went live, a few reviewers decided to show off the CPUs in action.
But most notably, Videocardz has obtained some overclocking numbers, which effectively make the Threadripper PRO 7995WX, the fastest CPU in the world. And this is not limited to HEDT/WS products but we’re also considering AMD’s EPYC Genoa series as well.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7995WX World Record
The Threadripper PRO 7995WX was showcased in a review by PCMag. The numbers below conform to what AMD presented in its marketing material. The Dell Precision 7875 hosts the 7995WX packed with 96 cores / 192 threads.
Against the Intel Xeon w9-3495X and AMD’s own last-gen Threadripper PRO 5995WX, the new flagship shows impressive results. It outpaces Intel’s best by a whopping 80%, with this lead dropping to 58% against the 5995WX.
Furthermore, an overclocking event took place at AMD HQ, a few screenshots of which have been shared by QuasarZone. The results of this session are, of course, blurred due to NDAs. Videocardz managed to obtain a screenshot from this very event that reveals the true potential of these processors.
Faster Than the EPYC Genoa 9654
Under Liquid Nitrogen, the Threadripper PRO 7995WX sustained a clock speed of 4.4GHz across all 96 cores. This required 620W of power, though the CPU can handle up to 1000W via Ryzen Master. And here’s the kicker, the CPU scores 148719 (148.7k) points in Cinebench R23, which makes this the fastest CPU to date (In Cinebench R23.)
To put this insane number into perspective, here’s a list of the fastest CPUs in the world (HWBot, CBR23). The world record is currently (at least officially) held by the EPYC 9654, AMD’s EPYC Genoa server flagship standing at 147.7k points. Well, today AMD has officially dethroned itself with the Threadripper PRO 7995WX amassing 148.7k points.
This is truly amazing and a sight to behold. A Workstation CPU outclassing its Server counterpart. While that is true, the Threadripper PRO 7995WX is 2x more expensive than most EPYC 9654 listings. Moreover, overclocking can void your warranty, so this is purely an enthusiast-catered result.
