Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX benchmark shows strong single-core performance

Tech Highlights:

  • The Zen 3 microarchitecture has done wonders for AMD’s CPUs, and the Threadripper family will undoubtedly benefit from it as well. There have been no fresh reports about when AMD plans to release these Zen 3-powered beasts. Intel doesn’t have anything to compete in that market right now, so it’s not like the chipmaker is in a rush.

  • The AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX has made its maiden appearance on the hardware landscape (via Benchleaks). AMD’s forthcoming Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 range for professional users and producers includes the 32-core beast.

The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX is a 32-core, 64-thread processor that finds itself just a notch down from the flagship Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX. You don’t need to be a genius to see that the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX is the successor to Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX. The core count remains the same, but the transition over to the Zen 3 cores is enough to give the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX a healthy increase in performance over its predecessor.

The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX resided on a reference platform called “Cloudripper-CGL”, where the CGL probably means Chagall (the codename for the Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series). The testbed also had 128GB of DDR4 memory and was using Linux as its operating system. There are plenty of Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX submissions with Linux in Geekbench 5, but the software doesn’t give us an average of the scores. Therefore, we took 10 random scores and calculate the average single-and multi-core scores. It’s not fair to compare average scores to a single submission, but that’s what’s available for the moment.

We don’t know the state in which the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 series is in, but we can only assume that the chip from the Geekbench 5 submission is an engineering sample. The 32-core chip reportedly features a 3.6 GHz base clock, and it was constantly performing a little over 4.5 GHz during the benchmark run. Comparatively, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX has a 3.5 GHz base clock and 4.2 GHz boost clock.

The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX ended up with 30.5% higher single-core performance than the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX. We had to disregard the multi-core score because it’s impossible that both 32-core chips would perform similary, taking into consideration the significant difference in the single-core tests. The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX run may be bugged.

According to Geekbench 5, the average single-and multi-core scores for the Ryzen Threadripper 3970X are 1,285 points and 22,366 points, respectively. We saw a similar single-core margin as with the Pro variant. In this case, however, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX delivered up to 23.4% higher multi-core performance.
