AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7985WX appears on Geekbench

On October 19th, AMD formally introduced its Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processors. This launch was not limited to just the Ryzen Threadripper 7000X series designed for the High-End Desktop (HEDT) platform but also included the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000WX series tailored for workstations. Specifically, the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX, a 64-core model, has evolved into the 7985WX. Moreover, there is an even more impressive 96-core Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7995WX. Both models exhibit a significant frequency boost from the previous generation, rising from 4.5GHz to 5.1GHz, although their Thermal Design Power (TDP) has increased to 350W.

Recent test data for Dell’s Precision 7875 workstation appeared in the Geekbench 6 database, revealing that this workstation is powered by the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7985WX processor. This chip, built on the Zen4 architecture, boasts 64 cores, 128 threads, and 256MB of L3 cache. The turbo frequency of the processor reaches a remarkable 5224MHz, slightly surpassing the official 5.1GHz. Its base frequency remains consistent with the official specification at 3.2GHz. The single-core and multi-core scores were 2599 and 24780, respectively, showing a more than 20% improvement over the 5995WX, largely attributable to the IPC enhancements in the Zen4 architecture.

All CPUs in the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000WX series support the AMD WRX90 and TRX50 chipsets. Specifically, the WRX90 supports 8-channel DDR5-5200 RDIMM memory up to 2TB, with 144 available PCIe lanes, of which 128 are PCIe 5.0. This chipset also offers AMD PRO Manageability, AMD PRO Business Ready support, AMD Secure Processor, AMD Shadow Stack, AMD Memory Guard, and overclocking capabilities. On the other hand, the TRX50 supports 4-channel DDR5-5200 RDIMM memory up to 1TB, with 88 available PCIe lanes, 48 of which are PCIe 5.0, and only includes overclocking functionality.

It’s reported that all Ryzen Threadripper 7000 processors will be released on November 21st. As of now, AMD has not disclosed specific pricing. Several motherboard manufacturers have already unveiled their WRX90 and TRX50 motherboards, expected to launch around the same timeframe.
