At the beginning of March this year, AMD released the last product line of the 7nm Zen3 family - thread ripper PRO, this time focusing on the OEM market rather than the consumer market, after all, the Ryzen, which has a maximum of 64 cores and 32 threads, is of little use to ordinary people.
Thread Ripper PRO 5000WX series can be seen as a simplified version of the Xiaolong 7003 series, the same 7nm process, Zen3 architecture, memory supports eight channels DDR4-3200 ECC UDIMM, RDIMM, LRDIMM, extended connection with a complete 128 PCIe 4.0, compared to the previous generation of Zen2 architecture Thread Ripper PRO 3000WX series more than eight, but it is not clear whether it comes from the processor itself or the chipset.
There are five specific models, namely 5995WX with 64 cores and 128 threads, 5975WX with 32 cores and 64 threads, 5965WX with 24 cores and 48 threads, 5955WX with 16 cores and 32 threads, and 5945WX with 12 cores and 24 threads, which is one more 24-core version than the previous generation.
However, a month after the release, the Ryzen Thread Ripper PRO series still has an important problem not solved, that is, out of stock, a survey from the British media theragist said that there are 6 PC manufacturers and 1 channel distributor in the United States told them that the supply of thread rippers is at an all-time low level in the past few months.
At present, these OEMs can't get the thread ripper processor, only Lenovo has the goods, and other manufacturers have to wait for the second half of the year to get supplies.
Even if Lenovo is an exclusive partner, only the previous generation of Ryzen™ Thread Ripper 3000 series is sold on Lenovo's official website, not the latest 5000 series, and Lenovo spokesperson also said that CPU supply is not Lenovo's problem.
AMD's supply has not kept up with the OEMs who have to seek other possibilities, and Intel has won this wave because their Xeon W series processors have regained orders, bearing in mind that the processor series of processors that have dominated workstations in the past two years has actually been too competitive for thread rippers to have any substantial updates.
