Puget Systems Announces Upcoming Availability of New AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 5000 WX-Series for its Custom Workstations for Content Creation

Puget Systems Labs Releases Results of Extensive Testing and Review of the Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series Across Multiple Platforms; Tests for Peak Performance for Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Davinci Resolve, Unreal Engine and Many More Critical Applications

Puget Systems today announced it will begin shipping its new line of custom workstations for Content Creation based on the selectively-available AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 5000 WX-Series CPUs in July, 2022.

Announced in March, 2022 and with limited availability, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series workstation processors, led by the 64-core, 128-thread AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX builds on AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3000 WX processors. The Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors deliver full-spectrum performance increases across multiple workstation workloads due to its “Zen 3” core architecture and increased processor frequencies.

Puget Systems is also the first third party to have completed extensive benchmark testing of the Threadripper PRO 5000 series across  multiple categories of content creation, including Post Production, Virtual Production, Rendering, 3D Design and Animation, and Photo Editing. 

Details on Puget Systems Labs’ Testing

As part of its testing, and in order to evaluate how the new AMD Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors performed in real-world content creation applications, Puget Systems Labs included the 24, 32, and 64 core models compared to a spread of CPUs from the previous generation Threadripper PRO 3000 WX-Series, along with Intel’s current Xeon W-3300 series of processors.

As a result of its extensive benchmarking, Puget Systems Labs concluded that, overall, the new AMD Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series processors are excellent for a wide range of content creation applications. Across the board, they tested moderately to significantly faster than the previous generation Threadripper PRO 3000 WX-Series depending on the application, and handily beat their main competition from Intel: the Xeon W-3300 series. Additionally, unlike the Xeon W line, the 5000WX processors rarely needed to use the “High Performance” Windows power profile in order to get the best performance.
