AMD’s newly launched Ryzen 7000 Threadripper lineup has been benchmarked on PassMark, where we see remarkable performance feats. The top 5 positions are now AMD-dominant with Intel coming in at the 8th position.
Threadripper 7000 PRO Shows Exceptional Performance
The top-of-the-line Threadripper PRO 7995WX already made a world record in Cinebench R23, amassing a whopping 148k points. The same result was achieved over at HWBot, more on that here.
In PassMark, we see a similar story, making the Threadripper PRO 7995WX the fastest x86 CPU to date. At 158.5k points, this CPU crushes AMD’s own Genoa EPYC 9654 server-grade flagship by almost 25%. Do note that both CPUs share an almost similar structure, with the only difference being their intended use case and platform.
Moving down the stack, the 64-core Threadripper PRO 7985WX, surprisingly also beats the 96-core EPYC 9654. As compared to the last generation, this CPU is 46% faster than the Threadripper PRO 5995WX, both of which are 64-core CPUs. So AMD has managed to squeeze out a ~50% multi-core performance gain over Threadripper 5000, at the same core counts, now that’s insane.
A good question would be, ‘How does Intel fair?’ and that’s a just question. The 56-core W9-3495X, Intel’s workstation best, is marginally slower than the 32-core Threadripper PRO 7975WX. AMD’s lead in this segment becomes more apparent when you consider that AMD’s own current 32-core CPU (7975WX) is actually faster than last generation’s 64-core flagship (5995WX).
When Does it Launch?
Workstations from OEMs packed with Threadripper PRO 7000 will arrive by late 2023. Likewise, the non-PRO series is also expected during the same time period. For DIY enthusiasts, select models will hit shelves across retailers starting from the 21st of November.
AMD has given users a lot of elbow room to work around with its sTR5 platform. Ryzen 7000 Threadripper officially marks AMD’s return to the workstation department and initial results are not disappointing.
