AMD’s Unannounced 96-Core Powerhouse Sets New World Record, Outperforming Intel’s Best CPU

The upcoming Ryzen ThreadRipper PRO 7995WX “Zen 4” processor’s test results have been revealed on the Geekbench benchmark, showcasing its impressive performance. Here are the key details:

  • Performance: The processor achieved a Geekbench 5 score of 2095 for single-core performance and a remarkable 81,408 for multi-core performance. While not a linear progression, the multi-core score easily surpasses the previous single-core champion, an overclocked Asus system with a 56-core Xeon w9-3495X CPU.
  • Core and Thread Count: The Ryzen ThreadRipper PRO 7995WX is reported to have 96 cores and 192 threads, along with 96MB L2 cache and 384MB L3 cache.
  • Memory: The system supports half a terabyte of memory.
  • Base Frequency: While there’s some doubt about the accuracy of the data, the base frequency is recorded as 7.97GHz, which is unlikely to be true.
  • Platform and Workstations: The processor was tested on an HP Z6 G5 workstation, marking a significant development as HP’s flagship workstation range was previously Intel Xeon-only. This move indicates AMD’s growing influence in the professional workstation market.
  • Performance Dominance: The Ryzen ThreadRipper PRO 7995WX is expected to solidify AMD’s performance dominance at the top end of the processor market.
  • Competition: The processor’s competition may come from both entry-level Ryzen processors and top-tier single/dual socket EPYC processors.
  • TDP: The processor is reported to have a 350W TDP, which is higher than the previous generation ThreadRipper Pro 5995WX and similar to the EPYC 9654.
  • Clock Speeds: Expect the 7995WX to have higher clock speeds across the range compared to previous models.

The Ryzen ThreadRipper PRO 7995WX appears to be a powerful addition to AMD’s lineup, likely to make a strong impact in various benchmark tests and performance-intensive applications.
