AMD's not-yet-released (or even announced) Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX processor continues to make unofficial appearances on the web. Last week the chip found its way to a distributing computing project's database (MilkyWay@home), and now it is flashing its pro-tuned heavy metal in a handful of benchmark runs. The Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series is not out yet, but it eventually will be released. It is based on AMD's Zen 3 architecture and carries the codename Chagall. According to past leaks, the workstation models will be offered in 12-core/24-thread, 16-core/32-thread, 32-core/64-thread, and 64-core/128-thread configurations. It's the latter that the Threadripper Pro 5995WX falls into, wielding... Read more...
Perhaps the final frontier for Zen 3 is AMD's eventual Threadripper lineup of high end desktop (HEDT) chips. It just depends on which come out first, next-gen Threadripper chips, or refreshed Zen 3 processors in the mainstream segment with stacked 3D v-cache. While we are waiting to find out, a couple of Threadripper Pro chips have been spotted in the Milky Way. As in, the MilkyWay@home distributed computing project. These types of projects tap into the computing resources of anyone who opts to participate, usually only taking advantage of idle CPU or GPU cycles. It is a strength in numbers kind of thing. You may have heard of Folding@home, which is a DC project aimed at running simulations of... Read more...
