AMD released the new Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors and partnered with Lenovo for the world’s first 64-core professional workstation; ThinkStation P620. And it is more than just a “Mac Pro killer”.
AMD launched the Threadripper processors back in 2017 and they became quite popular among creators due to their high core counts and relatively affordable pricing strategy. The company introduced a new PRO line-up of the Threadripper with four new processors ranging from 12-core to 64-core models. However, unlike other Threadripper CPUs, the new PRO processors will be exclusive to Lenovo for a while. So, with creators and performance demanding users in mind, Lenovo introduced the new ThinkStation P620 workstation that outperforms its rivals on specs.
The ThinkStation P620 is the first workstation that provides the highest multi-core performance in a single CPU with PCIe Gen4 support. With 128 PCIe lanes in total, the workstation can be configured with multiple graphics cards, and NVMe drives in high bandwidths without losing any performance. On the graphics side, the P620 can be equipped with up to four Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000, or two RTX 8000 graphics cards.
Unlike other consumer-grade desktop PCs, the P620 supports ECC (Error-correcting code) memory in 8-channel, and it can be upgraded up to 2TB RAM in total.
AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 3945WX (12 Cores, up to 4.3GHZ)
AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 3955WX (16 Cores, up to 4.3 GHZ)
AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 3975WX (32 Cores, up to 4.2 GHZ)
AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 3995WX (64 Cores, up to 4.2 GHZ)
ThinkStation P620 will be available this fall, and the pricing will be revealed later.
