As a workstation manufacturer, we have relationships with both Intel & AMD, we utilise Intel CPUs in our CAD, Media & Rendering workstations & AMD CPUs in our Ultimate range.
AMD vs. Intel: the ongoing processor debate. In recent years AMD has excelled in professional workload CPUs, the Threadripper range has transformed AMD, and right now is one of the most powerful CPUs on the planet.
We have been lucky to test AMD’s samples over the last few months and have created a Workstation that harnesses the power of the AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ and Threadripper™ PRO range.
The AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 3000WX Series Processors are nicknamed the ‘Productivity boosting engine’, and the statistics support this.
How is the CPU so powerful?
- Leading single-threaded and multithreaded performance.
- Unrivalled memory bandwidth.
- PCIe® 4.0 support for next-gen GPUs and storage. (Which means we can harness the power from Nvidia’s Quadro Range.)
AMD’s website shares performance stats which measure the performance across software used by industry professionals. https://www.amd.com/en/processors/ryzen-threadripper-pro
We asked our Chief Technologist James Lupton, Why use AMD CPUs in our Ultimate workstations?
AMD has been really killing it in the datacentre space in recent years, and their continued strive for generational performance gains and the push for high core counts has transformed high performance computing. Now, with the latest Threadripper™ PRO range, we are able to take datacentre performance and put it in a sleek workstation. Bringing 64 cores and 2TB of RAM capacity to the desktop, with full management capabilities and unrivalled PCIe capacity in a single socket (hello quad PCIe 4.0 x16 GPUs!). It was immediately obvious to us, we needed to bring these CPUs to the Proline Ultimate range.
