AMD is announcing their workstation-class Threadripper Pro as part of their CES 2021 announcements. The part will be available starting March 2021.
The Threadripper Pro is a full implementation of the Rome chip using the entire 64-core, 8-channel and 128 PCIe Gen4 lanes vs. the Ryzen Threadripper 3000’s quad-channel memory and 72 PCIe gen4 lanes. The Threadripper Pro features a couple of SKUs for launch with the 64-core 3995WX. It is a 64-core,128-thread CPU with a boost clock speed of 4.2Ghz. AMD will also release scaled down CPU core count SKUs, see below for more details:
- Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3995WX – 64-core/128-thread, 4.2Ghz
- Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX – 32-core/64-thread, 4.2Ghz
- Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3955WX – 16-core/32-thread, 4.3Ghz
- Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3945WX – 12-core/24-thread, 4.3Ghz
All of the CPUs are rated with a 280W TDP. No pricing has been announced.

As noted, all of the CPUs will feature 8-channel memory support and 128 PCIe Gen4 lanes. Another thing to note is that these CPUs will require the sWRX8 socket and WRX80 chipset. From what I can tell, right now these CPUs don’t seem compatible with sTRX40.
