When AMD unveiled its Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3000WX-series processors and WRX80 chipset in July, the company said that the platform will be available only from select workstation suppliers and there were no plans to bring it to do-it-yourself (DIY) enthusiasts. Officially, AMD’s stance has not changed and Threadripper Pro are CPUs for professional workstations, but Gigabyte has developed a branded motherboard for Threadripper Pro processors that will likely have broad availability. A promotional picture of Gigabyte’s WRX80-SU8 motherboard was published by VideoCardz website, which may indicate that the product is either about to be launched or is in final stages of its development.

Gigabyte’s platform is called the WRX80 SU8 IPMI Server Motherboard and it  features a server form-factor (most likely EATX) and carries a baseboard management controller (BMC). Meanwhile, the platform supports all AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3000WX-series processors in sWRX8 form-factor up to the 64-core Pro 3995WX. The platform has eight memory slots to use Threadripper Pro’s main feature: eight-channel memory support.

The motherboard has eight PCIe 4.0 x16 slots (not all of them support 16 lanes at all times though), at least two M.2-2280 slots for SSDs and SAS/SATA ports. Gigabyte’s WRX80 SU8 also carries two 10GbE connectors, two GbE ports for management, several USB Type-A connectors, at least one display output (for BMC), and a 7.1-channel audio subsystem, an indicator that this platform is intended both for servers and for workstations.
