AMD has announced Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 WX-Series processors will be available for system integrators from July 2022, and later this year for the DIY market, offering a unified platform.
Aimed at creative and professional communities, the Threadripper platform will use a single common infrastructure starting with the Threadripper Pro 5000 WX-Series. This means there will be only one chipset and one socket for all Threadripper Pro CPUs to facilitate consumer choices.
Each processor is based on AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro silicon using Zen 3 architecture and boasting 128 PCIe Gen 4 lanes and 8-channel of RDIMM DDR4 memory. AMD is also keeping the line-up clean by offering three models: Threadripper Pro 5995WX (64C128T), 5975WX (32C64T), and 5965WX (24C48T).

Thanks to this consolidation users will have two decisions; namely, which core count and what motherboard features they need. Additionally, some WRX80 motherboards from select ODM partners will support memory and CPU overclocking, which is perfect for users looking to push workstation performance to the limits.
Finally, the Threadripper Pro 5000 WX-Series will use the WRX80 chipset alongside the sWRX8 socket, so customers who already have a WRX80-based board, such as MSI WS WRX80, can upgrade to a Threadripper Pro 5000 WX CPU with a simple BIOS update.
