Official AMD Threadripper Pro Pricing: $5,489 for 64 Cores, $2,749 for 32 Cores (Updated)​

By Paul Alcorn 5 days ago

Update 1/26/21 4:40pm PT: AMD reached out to share the official pricing for the Threadripper Pro series chips, which falls at slightly lower pricing than the Compusource listings we discovered. Here's the official recommended pricing:

Cores / ThreadsSEP (Suggested Pricing)
Threadripper Pro 3995WX64 / 128$5,489
Threadripper Pro 3975WX32 / 64$2,749
Threadripper Pro 3955WX16 / 32$1,149

Original Article, slightly amended for clarity:

AMD recently announced that it's Threadripper Pro processors will come to retail outlets, but the company hasn't listed the official pricing yet. Seeing these chips come to retail outlets is a nice addition after they debuted for the first six months in uber-expensive pre-validated systems, like the Lenovo ThinkStation P620 that we recently tested with the flagship Threadripper Pro 3995WX. Thanks to a listing of the Threadripper Pro part numbers (via @momomo_us), we've now tracked down retail price listings at Compusource.

At Compusource, you'll have to cough up $6,086 for the 64-core 128-thread Threadripper Pro 3995WX, $3,043 for the 32-core 3975WX, and $1,253 for the 16-core 3955WX. The increased pricing from Compusource represents the retailer's premium.

While Threadripper Pro pricing is eye-watering, you'll get plenty of expanded functionality for your hard-earned dollars. AMD's powerful Threadripper Pro processors represent the ultimate in workstation power, easily beating the standard consumer-geared Threadripper chips in workloads that prize memory throughput. The chips rock up to 64 cores, 128 threads, and support up to 2TB of memory spread out among eight memory channels, not to mention 128 lanes of PCIe 4.0 connectivity.

Threadripper Pro retail pricing is much friendlier than what we see with OEM systems, too – for instance, it costs $7,000 just to upgrade from the 12-core 3945WX in a Lenovo system to the 64-core 3995WX.

At $5,489, the Threadripper Pro 3995WX commands a $1,499 premium over its consumer counterpart, the 3990X, but is less expensive than pricing for AMD's EPYC 7442 data center chip that comes with similar accommodations. Frankly, we expected higher suggested Threadripper Pro pricing to prevent cheaper workstation chips from cannibalizing AMD's data center EPYC models.
The 32-core 3975WX lands at $2,749, a $750 upcharge over the consumer Threadripper 3970X. Curiously, AMD left a 24-core Threadripper Pro model out of the new lineup.

The 16-core 3995WX lands at $1,149. The Threadripper Pro 3995WX doesn't have a 16-core Threadripper counterpart, instead, it competes with the $799 Ryzen 9 5950X that slots into mainstream motherboards. For $350 more, the 3995WX offers up four times more memory channels and 108 more lanes of PCIe 4.0 connectivity, but you'll have to pay handsomely for a workstation-class motherboard to house the chip and populate eight memory channels, which is a pricey proposition all by itself. And you'll miss out on Ryzen 5000's stunning single-threaded performance.

You’ll need a WRX80 motherboard to unlock the best of Threadripper Pro, but never fear, ASUS has listed the Pro WS Sage SE on its website and we should learn pricing and availability soon. This motherboard represents the ultimate in PCIe - it comes with seven PCIe 4.0 x16 slots and eight memory slots. The board also comes with a 16-phase power delivery substem, supports RDIMMs, and has a BMC chip for remote management.

Gigabyte also has its WRX80-SU8 waiting in the wings, but the details are slight. We know the massive board (most likely E-ATX) also has seven PCIe slots and BMC features, two 10 GbE ports, two GbE ports, and a 7.1-channel audio system.

If you want to see how these chips compare to standard Threadripper chips in a ton of benchmarks, including gaming, head to our recent review.


Anyone going to purchase one of these? What is the benefit of having so many cores and what can one use it for thats going to increase their productivity? It also says that it can support up to 2 TB of memory. Whats the benefit of having all that extra memory? Scalpers going to make a run on this?

Who actually thinks a $5000 dollar processor is a consumer product?

If you have this, it’s because you want to run the bespokiest of bespoke software.

Would be funny to see the Rivatuner list though. You’d need a vertical monitor to display them all

64 cores? Who the fuck needs 60 cores. Even rendering and AI doesn't benefit from 64 slow cores over 8 faster ones. Unless the die on this thing is huge.
They're not that slow. These things are pretty much the fastest single socket chip you can get for CPU based rendering.

Imagine just how quickly I could render my Linkin Park AMVs with 64 cores

Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away

I'm interested in gaming benches, but from the intel/gaming optomized variant that is sure to release. 2000 isn't much for a high end cpu considering high end CPU's have cost that much. These
CPU's are used for simulating/rendering/graphics/design and intense multitasking applications. Also, AI training/Transformer Model's may benefit from a 64core single CPU solution scaled up to server levels.
