AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000 CPU Appears in UserBenchmark – 32 Zen 2 Cores at Up To 4.2 GHz, Up To 30% Faster in Multi-Threaded Workload
After multiple appearances in the Geekbench benchmark database, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series 32 core processor has also shown up in UserBenchmark. The latest performance for the processor reveals a huge jump compared to the existing Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX 32 core in multi-threaded workloads and also much better single-threaded performance.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000 32 Core, 4.2 GHz Processor Benchmarked - 30% Faster Than The Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series lineup is scheduled to be announced later this year as revealed by AMD's CEO, Lisa Su, herself. The new processor lineup would be featuring the Zen 2 core architecture which delivered a massive IPC uplift of 15% compared to Zen+ based CPUs. In addition to better IPC, the new HEDT / Workstation chips would offer better I/O such as PCIe Gen 4.0 and higher efficiency thanks to the 7nm process node.
The latest Ryzen Threadripper 32 core entry is an ES1 sample with the '2D2832E6UIVG5_42/36_N' which means that it is an ES1 sample which means it's still in the early state but the clocks have been listed at 3.6 GHz base and 4.2 GHz boost. The benchmark reports that the chip maintained an average 3.75 GHz clock through the tests. The clocks are a definite improvement from the 2990WX which had a base clock of 3.00 GHz and a boost clock of 4.20 GHz.
When it comes to performance, the chip scored 5649 points in the multi-threaded (64 core) test, 1069 points in 8-core, 538 points in 4-core, 269 points in 2-core and 135 in single-core tests. The Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX for comparison scored 4328 points in the multi-threaded (64 core) test, 885 points in 8-core, 454 points in 4-core, 236 points in 2-core and 118 points in single-core tests. The 64-core test accounts the 64 threads that both chips have to offer and the Threadripper 3000 seems to be at least 30% faster in this performance metric. This score is similar to the 35% uplift that we have previously seen on the Geekbench benchmark.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000 Series CPUs - Here's What To Expect In Terms of Price, Specs, and Performance
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series family is expected to debut in the second half of 2019. This family will be internally known as “Castle Peak” and is stated to bring dominant leadership in the HEDT market. The family will prove to be a new watermark in performance and overall efficiency while new platform features will be introduced on the TR4 socketed motherboards to take them to the next level.
Considering that AMD would want to remain in a dominant position with the Threadripper 3000 series, we will be looking at some spectacular amounts of multi-threaded performance numbers which will only get better with the added clock speeds thanks to the 7nm process node. The CPUs will also be getting major core bumps, but AMD would like to keep prices close to current levels.
AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su:
“You know. it’s very interesting, some of the things that circulate on the Internet—I don’t think we ever said that Threadripper was not going to continue—it somehow took on a life of its own on the Internet,” Su said, speaking to a small group of reporters following her keynote. “You will see more [Threadripper] from us; you will definitely see more.
If mainstream is moving up, then Threadripper will have to move up, up—and that’s what we’re working on.”
AMD's CEO, Lisa Su, also confirmed within a tweet that we can expect more information on the next-gen Ryzen Threadripper CPUs later this year so expect to hear something soon. Following is the tweet:
Good to see you in the crowd @IanCutress ? and yes we promise more on next-gen Threadripper later this year!

If we look at the trend with AMD's jump from Ryzen Threadripper 1000 to Ryzen Threadripper 2000, we saw that the new processors with core parity of the previous generation were priced around the same with a $200-$300 shaved off from their previous price tag. The 1950X became 2950X and cost $200 US less. The higher core count parts were at a different market tier entirely, costing north of $1200 US but at the same time, much cheaper than their Core-X competitors.
In terms of raw performance output, the new die layout remains to be tested, but since it is more refined over the previous two generations with a stronger interconnect between them, the cache and latency performance may end up giving a bigger boost to total system responsiveness. AMD's new TRX40, TRX80 and WRX80 chipsets for Ryzen Threadripper 3000 are also being prepared that would possibly offer 8-channel memory on enthusiast and workstation PCs. Once again, expect more details in the coming months.
