Workstation vendor Velocity Micro introduces the ProMagix HD150, a deskside workstation equipped with the new, critically praised AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO. Velocity Micro says this new AMD CPU is the “ultimate processor for professional workstations.”
At the heart of this new workstation is AMD’s most ambitious CPU ever, the Threadripper PRO 3995 WX. It comes equipped with up to 64 physical cores, 128 processing threads, 128 PCIe Gen 4 lanes, and up to 2TB RAM. This CPU is built using 7nm fabrication technology, and is designed to be used as the brain of a single-socket desktop workstation.
Velocity Micro says this new workstation is ideal for compute-intensive applications common in design industries. The company says it only matches the Threadripper with ECC memory, which features an extra chip module to detect and correct errors and data corruption.
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO comes in three models, all available in the ProMagix HD150. The 3955WX has 16 cores, 32 threads running at 3.9GHz; the 3975WX has 32 cores, 64 threads running at 3.5GHz; and the 3995WX has 64 cores, 128 threads running at 2.7GHz with a Boost to 4.2GHz available.
Velocity Micro says it assembles workstations only in the USA, and builds each unit to the customer’s exact specifications. Other components and options:
- Case: standard or extended depth with advanced airflow design
- Power Supply: choice of EVGA SuperNova Power Supply at 850W, 1000W or 1600W
- Motherboard: The Asus Pro WS WRX80E-SAGE SE Wi-fi, designed for use with Threadripper CPUs
- Cooling: Velocity Micro LiquiCool for AMD
- Memory: DDR4 RAM at various choices between 32GB and 1TB
The ProMagix HD150 works with a variety of AMD and Nvidia GPUs, and most workstation-class monitors and storage units. Velocity Micro says each unit is individually tested before shipment. The Velocity Micro Lifetime Upgrade Plan allows the customer to return the system for maintenance, upgrades and tuning.
The Velocity Micro ProMagix HD150 workstation with the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO is now shipping. More information is available here.
