Sadly It's replacing a pretty old box, ddr3 etc. I've just been spending money on cloud workloads to do what I need instead but that is heaps expensive and needing hz and cores made Xeons batshit crazy expensive for the sort of spec I wanted. Like $30k for the machine. Couldn't get a ROI in time for these coming.
At least I do finally get a use for my warranty replacement seasonic 1000 Platinum that's sat shrink wrapped under a desk for a year though. It'll actually need it as I start adding v100s as well.
Now to go do my research that optane as a system/scratch disk works properly on AMD.
And where's the Epycs with these cores AMD, get on with it
This is where upgrading every year pays off I can sell my old stuff at practically the new price, so my upgrade to a bleeding edge system isn't that bad of a hit.
Oh, and a blown motherboard where I ended up replacing every piece, hoping it wasn't the motherboard nor CPU.
But I was looking over my old Newegg purchases. Managed to get an ASUS Rampage V Edition 10 + 128 GBs of RAM a couple years ago for $1000. Now I'm looking at RAM prices and the RAM alone would cost me more than that. What did I miss these past couple of years to see such a huge skyrocket in price?
