AMD launches Threadripper PRO to consumers Worldwide

AMD has released their Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors onto the consumer market, allowing PC builders and custom system manufacturers to create workstations based on AMD’s latest professional-grade processors. 

With up to 64 cores, eight memory channels and 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes, AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper PRO platform offers consumers unparalleled levels of memory bandwidth, PCIe connectivity and sheer CPU processing power. Now, Threadripper PRO CPUs are available to a wider range of consumers than ever before, allowing PC builders ti really put AMD’s cores and threads to work. 

Threadripper PRO utilises AMD’s WRX80 motherboard platform, premium workstation motherboards designed to make use of AMD’s Threadripper PRO platform’s capabilities. One of the first WRX80 motherboards to come to the consumer market is ASUS’ Threadripper PRO WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WiFi, which will cost £889.99 at Scan UK. 

Being a professional-grade product lineup, it is understandable that Threadripper PRO starts at core counts of sixteen and prices that are above £1,000. These CPUs deliver professional-grade features like AMD’s Memory Guar feature,  ECC memory support, AMD’s Secure Processor tech. These chips also support up to 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes and eight-channel DDR4 memory, justifying their high prices. 

Below are the specifications of AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper Pro processors and their current UK prices.

AMD launches Threadripper PRO to consumers WorldwideWhile Threadripper PRO may still be based on AMD’s Zen 2 architecture, it offers consumers capabilities that are not available elsewhere. Intel cannot offer consumers a CPU with this many cores within a single socket or a platform WRX80 that that offers 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes and 8-channel DDR4 memory. Intel has nothing that competes with this, and that is what makes Threadripper PRO truly groundbreaking.
