Puget Systems has announced a new line of custom-built Windows-based workstations centered around AMD’s next-generation Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WX and 7000 series processors.
The systems are custom-designed for higher-end content creation using video clips that are 4K and above, video game development, engineering, and scientific computing.
Now in its 20th year, Puget Systems has made a solid name for itself with content creators for building higher-end workstations that can handle high bandwidth video and visual effects workflows.
With an emphasis on customization based on the intimate needs of their clients, Puget is able to craft a workstation that is designed with a focus on the workflow needs of a given project and centered on the budget and needs of those who will use them.
The Threadripper 7000
The new AMD Threadripper 7000 workstations maintain Puget’s goal by offering an overclockable desktop that pushes clock speeds to the upper end of the processor’s power envelope.
With AMD’s 5nm process and Zen 4 architecture, the AMD Threadripper Pro 7000 WX processor offers up to 96 cores and 192 threads with up to 348MB of L3 cache and up to eight channels of DDR5 memory for high memory capacity and bandwidth.
Conversely, the more budget-friendly AMD Threadripper 7000 series processor provides up to 64 cores and 128 threads, coupled with 48 PCIe Gen 5 lanes and four-channel DDR 5 memory for twice the performance of typical dual-channel designs.
“Overall, the new AMD Threadripper 7000 processors offer a significant performance increase over the previous generation and at a significantly lower cost,” writes Puget Hardware Guru Evan Lagergren.
“The exact gen-over-gen performance gain varies based on the workload, but ranges from a decent ~10% increase in Premiere Pro to a larger 20–30% in DaVinci Resolve and After Effects.”
According to AMD, the new Threadripper 7000 series processors will save Creative Professionals with demanding workflows up to 27 minutes for every hour of productivity.
Coupled with Puget Systems’ custom-built designs, those savings are sure to increase due to their laser-like focus on high-performance productivity.
Pricing and availability
Due to the customized nature of Puget Systems’ computer configurations, there is a wide range of pricing based on the individual customer’s budget.
However, AMD lists the price of the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 starting at $1499 with an upper limit of just under $5,000 for the processor alone.
The Threadripper 7000 workstations are available to build starting immediately, with the Threadripper Pro 7000 WX workstations scheduled to come online in December 2023.
Users are encouraged to contact Puget Systems to schedule a time with a consultant to begin designing their next-generation workstations.
