AMD outs new 64-core Threadripper PRO chips for workstations

More processing performance for your workstation!

AMD has officially unveiled its new Threadripper PRO chips, aimed at workstations demanding for more processing performance.

The line also is a first in the industry, as AMD was able to pack in 64 cores in a single chip. The chips uniquely offer full spectrum compute capabilities with unmatched core counts for multi-threaded workloads plus high frequency single core performance for lightly threaded workloads. This combination makes AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO Processors the best choice for artists, architects, engineers and data scientists.

AMD claims that the new line of chips are better in terms of performance compared to Intel’s Xeon chips, especially in intensive creative applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, and Chaos Group V-Ray.
