ASRock TRX50 WS workstation motherboard supports for Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series

Recently, the Eurasian Economic Commission (ECC) enumerated ASRock motherboard models, notably featuring the TRX50 WS — a board tailored to support the upcoming Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series.

In the TRX40 lineup, ASRock exclusively released the ‘Creator’ and ‘Taichi’ models, catering to creatives and enthusiasts respectively. They also launched the more expansive WRX80 series but refrained from introducing a corresponding WS series. ASRock’s WS motherboard series, specifically crafted for high-speed computational workstations, emphasizes robust performance, manageability, and reliability. The company’s decision to reintroduce the WS series with the TRX50 might be inspired by the potent multi-core capabilities of the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series. It is highly probable that the board will feature the LGA 6096 “SP5” socket, thereby supporting 8-channel memory and 128 PCIe Gen 5 lanes. Meanwhile, the HEDT platform is likely to embrace the LGA 4844 “SP6” socket, accommodating 4-channel memory and 64 PCIe Gen 5 lanes.

Previous test data from the HP Z6 G5 workstation unveiled that the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7995WX processor, built on the Zen 4 architecture, boasts an impressive 96 cores and 192 threads. With its turbo frequency reaching a staggering 5.14GHz, the processor achieved a single-thread score of 2095 and a multi-thread score of 81408, surpassing existing world records. Furthermore, this new processor is poised to support DDR5 memory; the HP Z6 G5 workstation, for instance, was equipped with 512GB of memory, potentially not the upper limit for this processor. The Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series might fortify AMD’s dominant position in both the HEDT and workstation realms.

According to prior information, AMD is slated to unveil its next-gen Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series processor, codenamed “Storm Peak,” in the latter half of 2023, with motherboards likely seeing a concurrent release.
