AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7985WX 64 Zen 4-Core CPU Noticed: Operating On BoulderGulch “Storm Peak” Platform

AMD’s next-generation Ryzen Threadripper Professional 7985WX CPU with 64 Zen 4 cores has been noticed working on a Storm Peak motherboard platform.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper Professional 7985WX Packs 64 Zen 4 Cores, 256 MB Cache & Operating On BoulderGulch “Storm Peak” Motherboard

Noticed by Benchleaks, we’ve got our first itemizing of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper Professional 7000 “Storm Peak” CPU with its precise branding as a substitute of simply an OPN code like those which have leaked out earlier than. The CPU in query is the Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7985WX which has been listed on the PugetSystems benchmark database throughout the Metashape 1.0 benchmark. This benchmark may be very GPU intensive so we will ignore the efficiency outcomes for now.

As for the specs, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7985WX options 64 cores based mostly on the Zen 4 core structure in order that’s 8 CCDs with 256 MB of L3 cache. The CPU ought to function a TDP of round 280-320W and shall be suitable with the Storm Peak platform. On this case, the processor was working on the AMD BoulderGulch reference motherboard with 256 GB (8 x 32 GB) DDR5-5600 reminiscence.

The specs do not reveal a lot in regards to the particular platform so we’re uncertain if that is the HEDT or WS. The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 lineup is about to function each HEDT and WS or Workstation SKUs with the previous providing 4-channel DDR5 / 64 PCIe Gen 5 lanes and the latter providing 8-channel DDR5 / 128 PCIe Gen 5 lanes. The HEDT chips are stated to be suitable with LGA 4096 (SP6) motherboards whereas the WS chips are anticipated to be suitable with the SP5 socket (LGA 6096). Following is how the lineups will stack up within the HEDT section:

  • AMD HEDT: Threadripper 7000 (5nm Zen 4) / 4-Channel DDR5 / 64 PCIe Gen 5 / 4096 SP6 Socket
  • Intel HEDT: Xeon W-2400 (10nm Golden Cove / 4-Channel DDR5 / 64 PCIe Gen 5 / LGA 4677 Socket

For the workstation section, we’ve got:

  • AMD WS: Threadripper 7000 (5nm Zen 4) / 8-Channel DDR5 / 128 PCIe Gen 5 / 6096 SP5 Socket
  • Intel WS: Xeon W-3400 (10nm Golden Cove / 8-Channel DDR5 / 112 PCIe Gen 5 / LGA 4677 Socket

Contemplating that it is a Professional chip featured alongside an 8-channel DDR5 reminiscence resolution, it’s seemingly that we might be wanting on the WS platform. The usual HEDT chips will seemingly not function the “Professional” branding. A number of SKUs have been additionally leaked out final month and are stated to launch in Q3 2023 though that may change since nothing is about in stone but.
