    We FINALLY got our hands on AMD’s new EPYC Rome processor – Let’s see what 64 Zen 2 cores can do, shall we?

    Buy a Supermicro H11SSL-NC with 64-core EPYC pre-installed:
    On Newegg: lmg.gg/8KVPJ

    Or buy a Threadripper instead:
    On Amazon: geni.us/RqprkC
    On Newegg: lmg.gg/8KVPL

    Or maybe settle for a consumer Zen 2 CPU:
    On Amazon: geni.us/0i5Hu
    On Newegg: lmg.gg/8KVPB

      Why is Epyc pronounced like epic, but Ryzen is pronounced rye-zen? The latter doesn't exactly say anything, while epic is pretty clear. If Ryzen was pronounced risen, would that not deliver a message? Like AMD has risen again from being far behind Intel to making truly competitive CPUs again? Oh, whatever.

        I have a way of accelerating ordinary PCs up to 3000 times for general computational tasks such as Photoshop. ++385 35 481 341, mobile ++385-91-390-3479 (Tvrtko Rajcevic, Croatia, EU) I would like to sell my invention to Intel or whoever offers the most cash. The price is €1BN+30% of future profits or what is being offered at the table. 13.11.2019.

                                                    Funny thing is it’s actually worse to have a lot of cores for gaming, since they’re more reliant on higher clock speeds. Things like video rendering are what these cpus are best at.
