AMD THREADRIPPER PRO 3995WX

Post by dhirota »

For those that might be interested in purchasing an AMD Threadripper Pro 3995WX and associated MB, They are available for purchase at Newegg as I post this thread, since I just purchased a 3995WX and an ASUS MB 30 minutes ago. It should arrive in HNL on May 8, 2021. I have all the other pieces, since I built a Threadripper 3990 version last year. I have a source of 128GB or 256GB DDR4 Registered ECC RAM sticks, so I will figure that out tomorrow.

Good stuff Dennis, I look forward to hearing how it compares to the 3990. Seems to be quite a bit faster than the EPYC on Windows though not Linux.

The only comment I woild make about this though, is your computer is only as fast as your weakest component, so before buying a CPU this powerful make sure you study the rest of your rig first

We have 5 Nvidia RTX2080Ti GPUs in the office that take up 3 slots. I will steal the one on our 18Core i9-9980XE until I figure out how to best use the 7 PCIe-Gen-4 slots with 128 lanes on the 3995WX and which GPUs make the most sense after the Bit-coin guys go broke.

Good thing you've already got some spares. Trying to get anything is madness right now. I've been trying to source additional cards to expand our compute farm and it's rediculuous. Three generation old 1080s are selling for more than they did when new.

Looking forward to read about your conclusions on this.
With the price hikes on some of the software packages I use, all of the sudden having a 4000 USD processor might be a cost saving measure...

All the major pieces showed up today as shown in the box containing the ASUS PRO WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WiFi motherboard. I have not taken it out of box yet to weigh it, but someone said it is over 11lbs.

20210305_152935.jpg
The picture shows: Top to bottom
ASUS Silver Hyper M.2X16 Gen 4 Card - I have another one, but this one was included in the ASUS MB box, for FREE (or included in the US$1,000 price).

ASUS PRO WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WiFi motherboard
AMD ThreadRipper Pro 3995WX CPU
Samsung 980 PRO M.2 1TB PCie NMVe Gen4 to boot W10
Samsung 980 PRO M.2 2TB PCie NMVe Gen4 to boot Ubuntu
4 each 128GB DDR4-2933 ECC RDIMM
Estimated cost US$10,500

Not included in the picture
EVGA SuperNova 1300W G2 80+Gold Power Supply- impossible to get at any price, but I had a spare
Full size case with space for 9each 3.5 inch HDD
AVAGO 9361-8i SAS raid controller - I have 2 more spares
NVIDIA RTX 2080Ti GPU - stealing it from another workstation until availability on GPUs improves.
Wireless mouse and KB from office spare collection.
Cooling-- may use another spare two fan H100i

The next picture is a terrible reflection on AMD packaging with the 3990X on the left in a fully insulated package for US$4,000 purchase price. The packaging on the right packed with bubble wrap with a broken external CPU cap (I will need to see it works) and a piece of cellophane window for a purchase price of US$5,500.

I have been in this computer building business for over 20 years and I have never touched anything as small and expensive as the 3995WX and the 4 each 128GB DDR4 RDIMM RAM sticks and I guess including the ASUS MB.

I have rebuilt our other ThreadRipper 3990X several times in the last year, the last time to improve the case size and case fans and to include raid 6 SAS storage and transfer speed for Ubuntu large file movement. The ASUS MB has dual Intel 10GbE built in, which saves a few $$.
