AMD introduces new Threadripper Pro processors

The top model comes with 64 cores and 288 MB cache. AMD promises up to 27 percent more performance than a workstation with two Intel Xeon Platinum 8280. Among other things, Lenovo relies on the new AMD CPUs.

AMD has announced four new Threadripper Pro processors. Developed for professional workstations, they are designed to provide “unmatched performance” for virtualization, data science and design workloads. Integrated among other things Lenovo the new top model Threadripper Pro 3995 WX with 64 processor cores in the workstation ThinkStation P620.

The Threadripper Pro CPUs support PCIe Generation 4 with up to 128 PCIe lanes. They are said to have up to 2.5 times the bandwidth of comparable dual processor configurations IntelProcessors (Xeon Platinum 8280). In addition, workstations can be equipped with the new AMD processors with up to 2 TB of RAM, distributed over eight memory channels.

The processor achieves this performance with 64 2.7 GHz cores that can execute two threads each. The processor clock increases to 4.2 GHz in boost mode. AMD specifies the cache with 288 MB.

The Threadripper Pro 3975WX, 3955WX and 3945WX models have 32, 16 or 12 cores – and support multithreading. With the smaller number of cores, the base clocks increase up to 4 GHz and the speed in boost mode up to 4.3 GHz. AMD specifies the energy consumption with 280 watts TDP each.

In addition, AMD has given the new processors AMD Pro technologies. This includes additional security functions for the protection of confidential data, enterprise management functions and the storage encryption AMD Memory Guard. It is designed to help prevent physical attacks on confidential data.

Lenovo will launch the world’s first workstation with AMD’s Threadripper Pro 3995WX in the fall. “By using the AMD Threadripper PRO processors for our latest workstation, the ThinkStation P620, we can offer users smarter solutions for creating complex models, rendering photo-realistic images or analyzing geophysical and seismic interpretations, while providing critical security and scalability features to ensure safe and effective operations for our professional users, ”said Rob Herman, general manager of the Workstation and Client AI division at Lenovo.

Collaboration platform Slack: work efficiently – no matter where

Before COVID-19, remote work was almost unthinkable for many companies. Today they realized that it can work very well if the general conditions are right. Find out in this webinar how you can optimally react to changing working conditions with the Slack collaboration solution.
