AMD's forthcoming Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX (Storm Peak) will undoubtedly disrupt the list of best CPUs for workstations. The multi-core beast, which will lead the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000WX army, has been spotted in a new benchmark with 96 cores and boost clock speeds up to 5.1 GHz.
The Geekbench 5 submission (via Benchleaks) exposes the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX with 96 cores and 192 threads. The next-generation workstation flagship represents a 50% increase in core count over the existing Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX (Chagall). It also sports 60% more cores than Intel's Xeon Platinum 8490H (Sapphire Rapids) server chip.
The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX is a risky bet on AMD's part since it's almost a carbon copy of the company's EPYC 9654 (Genoa) processor, which retails for $11,805. There will be a difference in features between the Threadripper Pro and EPYC platforms. A handful of processors can compete with Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX regarding core count. Only EPYC Bergamo, which scales up to 128 cores, has more cores.
Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX also comes with a significant upgrade in the cache subsystem. The Zen 4-powered workstation chip wields 384MB of L3 cache and 96MB of L2 cache. That's the same design on the EPYC 9654. however, in comparison to the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX flaunts 50% more L3 cache and up to 3X as much L2 cache.
Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX Specifications*
|Processor||Cores / Threads||Base / Boost Clock (GHz)||L3 Cache (MB)||L2 Cache (MB)||TDP (W)|
|Ryzen Threadripper 7995WX||96 / 192||? / 5.1||384||96||350|
|EPYC 9654||96 / 192||2.4 / 3.7||384||96||320 - 400|
|Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX||64 / 128||2.7 / 4.5||256||32||280|
|Xeon Platinum 8490H||60 / 120||1.9 / 3.5||112.5||120||350|

Ignore the Geekbench 5-reported 7.97 GHz base clock, since it's an obvious error. However, digging deeper into the Geekbench 5 report shows that the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX was reportedly boosted to 5,140 MHz, which probably is the single-core boost clock. The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX has a 4.5 GHz single-boost clock, so the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX's rocking a 14% higher single-boost clock.
Compared to the EPYC 9564, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX has a 38% higher boost clock. In a way, you could consider the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX to be a faster-clocked EPYC 9564. An important factor will be the pricing — the EPYC 9564 costs $11,805, so it'll be interesting to see how AMD prices the nearly-equal Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX.
As with all leaked benchmarks, take these with a grain (or several) of salt. The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX scored 2,095 and 81,408 points on the single-and multi-core tests, respectively. Compared to the nearly identical Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX submission, the new chip has a 26% higher single-core performance. In terms of multi-core performance, we're looking at around 49%. The exact numbers will likely differ slightly, so these values are more general ballpark figures.
If the information from a leaked shipping document is legit, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX may have a 350W TDP — the same as the Xeon Platinum 8490H. This TDP rating looks reasonable, since the EPYC 9564's TDP varies between 320W to 400W. In this case, the 96-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX seemingly has a 25% higher TDP than the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX, probably to lodge the extra cores and higher clock speeds.
The leaked document with today's Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX benchmark hints at an imminent launch for the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000WX series. We saw a couple of upcoming Noctua Threadripper CPU air coolers at Computex 2023 with an ETA of October, and the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000WX series will likely hit the market around that timeframe.

so its effectively a faster EPYC 9654 for liekly around same price?Reply
96 cores? Dear Lord.Reply
I've got enough trouble just trying to use 16. Still....
I WANT ONE! :)
96 cores, 5.1ghz boost. That is impressive.Reply
'AMD's forthcoming Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7995WX (Storm Peak) will undoubtedly disrupt the list of best CPUs for workstations'
You mean disrupt it's own list of the best workstation CPU's? ;)
AMD makes infinite fabric looks a no-brainer, I wonder what went wrong at the GPU side with mcmReply
I wonder what the all-core boost will be. 4+ Ghz hopefully?Reply
The new KING! too many cores for a peasant sadlyReply

Most likely graphics are more memory delay depended than cpu tasks...
But if you remember Zen1 was not great, so second and third generation of multichip GPUs will improve quite a lot!
It won't be priced the same it will be lower.hotaru251 said:so its effectively a faster EPYC 9654 for liekly around same price?
