How Does the New Threadripper 5000 Pro Series Perform?

After delays, AMD launched the Threadripper 5000 Pro series in early March. There is no development about the regular Threadripper series yet, but now the Pro series has started to take its place in the market.

Puget Systems recently tested AMD’s new Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 WX processors in several professional applications and concluded that performance was significantly better on most workloads compared to the older Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series. Several Intel chips were also tested, including the Xeon W 3000 series and the i9-12900K. Threadripper 5000 has completely excelled in multi-core heavy workloads.

AMD’s new 5000 WX Series models come with higher clock speeds of up to 4.5 GHz, Zen 3 microarchitecture, eight channels of DDR4 memory and 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes. Chips developed for workstations range from 12 cores to 64 cores and 128 threads Threadripper Pro 5995WX.

The new Threadripper series brings a slightly modified EPYC Milan design to workstations and serves as a refresh for the Zen 2-powered Threadripper Pro 3000 series that has dominated the workstation segment since mid-2020. In fact, AMD claims to have captured 60% of the North American workstation market (IDC). The new chips carry all of the same Pro features as their predecessors, such as AMD’s Pro Security, Manageability and Business Ready packages (18 months software stability, 2 years chip availability), an area where Intel’s competing chips are lacking.

The tests covered the 64-core 5995WX, 32-core 5975WX, 24-core 5965WX, 64-core 3995WX, 32-core 3975WX and 16-core 3955WX. As for Intel-signed chips, the Xeon W-series (W-3365, W-3345, W-3335) and Core i9-12900K were used to test heavy single-core workloads.

The Threadriper 5995WX, 5975WX, and 5965WX CPUs all have a clear edge over their Zen 2 counterparts in Adobe Premiere Pro, as well as Intel’s W-3345 and W-3335 processors. The top-performing Core i9-12900K beat the Zen 3 chips by just a few points. This shows us that Premiere Pro is predominantly a single-threaded application. But AMD’s Zen 3 chips are powerful enough to keep up with Intel’s Alder Lake family.

The Threadripper Pro 5000 series comfortably outperforms all of Intel’s processors and past-generation AMD’s Threadripper 3000 series in Adobe After Effects tests. Davinci Resolve behaves similarly to After Effects and all chips are much closer together in performance. Again, AMD’s Threadripper 5000 chips were ahead in the tests.

Intel’s Core i9-12900K outperforms all CPUs in Adobe Photoshop jobs, including the Threadripper 5000. On the other hand, AMD’s Zen 3 chips take second place, surpassing the Xeon W series and AMD’s Zen 2 predecessors. As you can see from the scores, Photoshop is purely single-core software. That’s why Intel’s superior IPC in Alder Lake has outstripped AMD’s Zen 3 chips.

Adobe Lightroom Classic results are a bit odd. The 24-core 5965WX and 32-core 5975WX top the benchmarks. But the 64-core flagship 5995WX performs worse than the previous-generation 32-core 3975WX and the Core i9-12900K. Probably Lightroom’s core management has some issues that don’t affect low core CPUs.

Unreal Engine and Blender tests are also available. Overall, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 offers a 15% performance increase over the previous generation. If we make a comparison with Intel, the 32-core W-3365 lags even behind AMD’s 24-core 5965WX processor. All results and details can be found on Puget Systems’ website.
