Xeon W-3375X 665W TDP processor, meet new reality!
  • image

    • 14nm
    • 56 cores, 112 thread
    • 5,1Ghz
    • TDP at 665W (real consumption can be more!)

    This will be common reality of workstation level processors in 2-3 years.

    64 core 7nm Threadripper real peak consumption will be also around 500-600 watts (despite 280 W TDP). 32 core model peaks at 450-470 watts already.

  • "32 core model peaks at 450-470 watts already" - did you measure that? or you just disorient all the readers

    Lot of people measured this (see Threadripper topic). Your consumption stays around TDP due to setting in BIOS limiting power stage maximum power.

  • dear Vitaliy_Kiselev Ryzen 3000 has some TDP and limit PPT is higher (similarly intel´s PL1=TDP and PL2 is always higher), that is true - and thats why CPU with some TDP has bigger power consumption in full load than TDP says

    BUT !!! TR3 3960X/3970X has TDP 280W which is also PPT limit, so you can load 32C64T totally full (also using all-core boost), and its real power consumption is only 285 W !!! checked with watt-meter plugged into the power socket

    yes, the situation can be different with TR3 3990X 64C128T ultra-brutal beast, because 280W real power consumption for this monster is "too good to be true", but there are several factors that needs to be considered: the frequencies can be lower, so the real power consumption wont be so big - and if so, probably it will not be 600W like you predict and lets say "only" 400W ... and even if so ... the performacne is 30% better that 56C112T intel´s dual CPU desperate peace of hardware
