Even though AMD announced Threadripper Pro 5000WX series will be available in July, some Chinese retailers seem to be impatient to sell these bad boys, starting at £2,110.
Thanks to @AnhPhuH, we now have pictures and pricing of these new multithreading behemoths. However, keep in mind prices may not represent final retail cost, as they are ahead of launch, so the seller may be gouging some more profit.
According to AnhPhuH, prices are higher than of equivalent 3000WX series processors. Starting at ¥17,200 (£2,110) nets a 24-core Threadripper Pro 5965WX, for ¥24,000 (£2,948) there’s a 32-core Threadripper Pro 5975WX, and for ¥47,000 (£5,774) the champion 64-core Threadripper Pro 5995WX hoves into view.
It seems that half the price provides half the cores, which is good, and changes from the usual artificially inflated prices of top-of-the-line products – looking at you, RTX 3090 Ti.
Additionally, another user (@SkyJuice60) noticed the label indicates socket sTRX4 instead of sWRX8, meaning one of two things; either these CPUs will be compatible with the older sTRX4 socket, or the label has a print typo. Fingers crossed for the first possibility.
