AMD Radeon Pro W5500 and W5500M they are official: these are GPUs designed for the professional workstation market, therefore addressed to planners and designers – of course, as you can guess from the names, the first is for desktop systems, while the second is for laptops. They sit quite a bit below the already available W5700s – and the related Mac Pro specific variant.

The cards are based on the 7 nanometer RDNA architecture, it supports GDDR6 ram memory and the PCI Express 4.0 standard. In both cases the CU are 22, but the laptop version has a maximum consumption of 85 W against the 125 of the "smooth" W550 and half of the RAM – 4 GB against 8. The TeraFLOPS are therefore a little lower – 4, 79 (max) versus 5.35 (max). For reference, remember that the W5700 has 36 CUs, while the W5700X rises to 40, which translates to 8.89 and 9.5 TeraFLOPS respectively. The power of the W5500 is sufficient to handle 4 4K @ 60 Hz displays, or an 8K always at 60 Hz.

AMD Radeon Pro W5500 will be available for purchase in a few days; the list price for the USA is set at $ 399, roughly half of the W5700 (which, however, as we have seen, is not twice as powerful). There is still no precise information on the W5500M, but the wait will not be very long yet. The producer says it will hit the market this spring. We look forward to details for our market.

The new top of the range processor AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper 3990X begins to "turn" under the hands of the most famous overclockers who, needless to say, are not wasting time to scramble the latest jewel of the AMD house.

After the debut at CES 2020 in Las Vegas, many were curious to see the overclocking potential of this CPU, especially considering that we are facing a solution to 64 cores / 128 threads (288MB cache) and a TDP of well 280W with factory frequencies, that is 2.9 GHz of base and Boost up to 4.3 GHz.

Turning to the numbers, in the last hours the results loaded in the databases of the various reference benchmarks are different, among these certainly stands out the frequency record reached bySafedisk overclocker, capable of pushing the 3990X ThreadRipper up to 5,573.7 MHz. For the occasion, a motherboard was used ASUS Zenith II Extreme Alpha (we talked about it HERE) and obviously a good dose of liquid nitrogen, the only way to keep operating temperatures at bay with this type of setting.

Different speech when we talk about stable overclocking and related benchmarks. Peak frequency aside, Safedisk has failed to offer significant results in multi-thread benchmarks (with all cores active) giving way to another overclocker, Splave, capable instead of closing the Cinebench R20 test at a frequency of 5305.9 MHz and a score to say the least monstrous, 39518 points. Again the cooling was liquid nitrogen while the motherboard was an ASRock TRX40 Taichi.

This is obviously just the beginning, AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper 3990X is not yet available everywhere and we are sure that many other records will be broken in the next few days, remembering that this CPU costs $ 3,990 (more than 4,000 euros on the European market, it is said) , a figure that probably not everyone would risk to pursue a record, sponsored overlcockers aside.
