AMD had released the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 series in early March after delays. There are no developments regarding the regular Threadripper series yet, but at the moment the Pro series has begun to take its place on the market.
Puget Systems, recently testing AMD’s new Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 WX processors in several professional applications, it concluded that performance is significantly better on most workloads compared to the older Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series. Several Intel chips were also tested, including the Xeon W 3000 series and the i9-12900K. Threadripper 5000 has managed to completely excel in multi-core heavy workloads.
AMD’s new 5000 WX Series models come with higher clock speeds of up to 4.5 GHz, Zen 3 microarchitecture, eight channels of DDR4 memory and 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes. The chips developed for workstations range from 12 cores to the 64-core 128-thread Threadripper Pro 5995WX model.
The new Threadripper series brings a slightly modified EPYC Milan design to workstations and serves as a refresh for the Zen 2-powered Threadripper Pro 3000 series, which has dominated the workstation segment since mid-2020. In fact, AMD claims to have captured 60% of the North American workstation Sunday (IDC). The new chips carry all of the same Pro features as their predecessors, such as AMD’s Pro Security, Manageability, and Ready-to-Work packages (18 months of software stability, 2 years of chip availability), an area where Intel’s competing chips are lacking.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 WX Performance
The tests cover the 64-core 5995WX, 32-core 5975WX, 24-core 5965WX, 64-core 3995WX, 32-core 3975WX and 16-core 3955WX models. As for the Intel signed chips, the Xeon W-series (W-3365, W-3345, W-3335) and the Core i9-12900K were used to test single-core heavy workloads.
The Threadriper 5995WX, 5975WX and 5965WX CPUs all had an obvious superiority over their Zen 2 counterparts in Adobe Premiere Pro, as well as Intel’s W-3345 and W-3335 processors. The Core i9-12900K, which received the highest result, outperformed the Zen 3 chips by only a few points. This shows us that Premiere Pro is predominantly a single-threaded application. But AMD’s Zen 3 chips are powerful enough to keep up with Intel’s Alder Lake family.
The Threadripper Pro 5000 series easily surpasses all Intel processors and the previous generation AMD’s Threadripper 3000 series in Adobe After Effects tests. Davinci Resolve has a similar behavior as After Effects, and all the chips are much closer to each other in performance. AMD’s Threadripper 5000 chips were again ahead in the tests.
Intel’s Core i9-12900K outperforms all CPUs, including Threadripper 5000 in Adobe Photoshop jobs. AMD’s Zen 3 chips, on the other hand, are in second place, surpassing the Xeon W series and AMD’s Zen 2 predecessors. As you can see from the scores, Photoshop is literally a software that focuses on a single core. That’s why Intel’s superior IPC at Alder Lake outperformed AMD’s Zen 3 chips.
The results of Adobe Lightroom Classic are a little strange. the 24-core 5965WX and the 32-core 5975WX are at the top of the tests. But the 64-core flagship 5995WX performs worse than the 32-core 3975WX of the previous generation and the Core i9-12900K of the previous generation. Probably, Lightroom’s kernel management has some problems that do not affect low-end processors.
Unreal Engine and Blender tests are also available. In general, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 offers a performance increase of 15% compared to the previous generation. If we make a comparison with Intel, then the 32-core W-3365 lags behind even AMD’s 24-core 5965WX processor. All the conclusions and details Puget Systemsyou can find it on the web page of .
