A brand new writer in the fields, Fatima has been taken under my electric spark's RGB- rich and ensures she doesn't engage in excessive snark on the website. It's unclear what command and Conquer are; however, she can talk for hours about the odd rhythm games, hardware, product reviews, and MMOs that were popular in the 2000s. Fatima has been creating various announcements, previews, and other content while here, but particularly enjoys writing regarding Products' latest news in the market she's currently addicted to. She is likely talking to an additional blogger with her current obsession right now.

AMD shared its official pricing with us for its Threadripper Pro 5000 WX-series processors, at the same time effectively marking the end of what we would consider the company’s traditional HEDT lineup. AMD originally announced the Threadripper Pro chips back in March, and as usual for this series of chips, it came exclusively in Lenovo‘s OEM ThinkStation systems. As such, AMD didn’t release chip pricing. Last week AMD announced the Pro chips would come to other OEMs later this year and that it would come to retail as a standalone chip to also serve the DIY/enthusiast crowd — and there will be no more non-Pro versions of Threadripper. 

  • AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX SEP is $6,499
  • AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5975WX SEP is $3,299 
  • AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5965WX SEP is $2,399

Here’s the official Threadripper Pro pricing that AMD shared with us today, and it’s clear that these chips are priced far above what we would expect for the traditional definition of the HEDT segment.
