For those who have not noticed, the STH team has been on varying vacations over the past two weeks or so. We have had seven folks out for various periods since August 1. I am getting to the end of being in Austin only 6 of 38 days. As a result, we have had a few videos, and accompanying pieces get delayed. One was the video review accompanying the AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX review we published a week ago.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX the Video
You can find the video that accompanies that review here:
As always, we suggest opening these videos in their own tab, browser, or app for the best viewing experience. We have a lot of 4K (after YouTube processes the video) product views of not just the processor but also of the Gigabyte MC62-G40 and Supermicro AS-5015A-TT workstations. Video, as a format, gives us a bit more leeway to show different angles of these platforms.
I also took a few minutes at the end, in my “key lessons learned” section, to talk about my expectations for Genoa’s impact on the high-core count workstation market later in 2022 (or really 2023) and also some of the exclusivity agreements that AMD has with certain manufacturers.
While a lot of it is the same as the AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX review piece, there are some new bits. Just before the main site review went live I recorded this while Eric was helping with the piece. Alex, our video editor, was out so the video was delayed in the meantime.
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX is the top CPU in the workstation market right now. It is around $6500, so it is not inexpensive, but it is less expensive than a lot of the software in the professional workstation market. The TR Pro 3995WX “WEPYC” I was so impressed with that you saw it in the Building the Ultimate x86 and Arm Cluster-in-a-Box, as well as I ended up building a workstation around the part.
Again, apologies that this video was a bit tardy. The team should mostly be back in force later this week as we gear up for Hot Chips next week. Expect the pace to pick up later this week as several of these video plus web review pieces that are 30-60% complete get finished off and published.
