Testing the 32/64 core AMD Threadripper 7970X / 7980X processor: impressive 3D rendering performance

Gamingdeputy news on November 21,AMD released the Threadripper 7000 series processors in October this year, which will be officially launched on November 21st.This series of processors needs to be used with the new WRX90 or TRX 50 motherboard, and the memory must use R-DIMM models.

Threadripper 7000 series processors are based on Zen 4 architecture, with up to 96 cores and 192 threads, and there are 6 models in total.


The Threadripper 7000 PRO processor is designed for workstation systems, with options ranging from 12-core 7945WX to 96-core 7995WX, with a frequency of up to 5.3GHz and a TDP of 350W. This series of processors has 128 PCIe 5.0 lanes, an L3 cache of 384MB, and supports 8-channel DDR5-5200 memory.

The Threadripper 7000 processor is designed for high-performance desktop systems, with options from 24-core 7960X to 64-core 7980X, with a frequency of up to 5.3GHz and a TDP of 350W. This series of processors has 48 PCIe 5.0 lanes, an L3 cache of 256MB, and supports 4-channel DDR5-5200 memory.

Media reviews of the Threadripper 7000 series processors have been lifted today. Gamingdeputy has summarized reviews from multiple media outlets including ComputerBase and AnandTech as follows:

The current unblocked media reviews are mainly about the Threadripper 7000 processor for high-performance desktop systems. AnandTech and ComputerBase released the 32-core and 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 7970X and 7980X respectively.


AMD chips perform best in 3D rendering, performing well in Cinebench, V-Ray, Blender and other tests. When it comes to video encoding, the chips’ performance was mixed, losing out to archrival the 56-core Intel Xeon W9-3945X, as well as regular Ryzen 7000 and 14th Gen Intel Core desktop processors.


There are also mixed results in scientific computing and modeling. But in the task of working with AI, AMD processors lose to Intel’s aforementioned rivals.

ComputerBase also tested the new Threadripper’s gaming performance and found it to be at the level of Ryzen 7000, Core i5-12600K and even Core i7-12700K.

And in game mode, when only 16 cores are active and the rest are turned off, the new product can even come close to the Core i7-12900K due to the higher frequency.

In terms of power consumption, the Ryzen Threadripper 7970X and 7980X can consume 83 and 95W respectively even when idle. The maximum load provided in the Prime95 test resulted in the chip’s power consumption increasing to 484W and 493W in the ComputerBase test.
