    AMD Shows of Epyc Datacenter CPU
    AMD just got finished off showing off some of the basics about its EPYC datacenter processor. It is based on the Zen architecture goodness, and is in a nutshull, four Ryzen CPUs on a single package for server. So you get 32 Cores under one integrated heat spreader with support for 4TB of memory and 128 native PCIe lanes.

    smart move making it a soc like a xeon d on major steroids. That allows more margin on the cpu in a competitive total system price.

    Need price , need availability ... sounds like a nice crunching box.

    Maybe $1800 -$2400 ??

    VIRTUALIZATION. Who's going to run this thing bare metal, save for maybe some SQL DB or SAN which can use all the threads and IO.

    Dies are probably flawed, used for demonsrtation purposes. Looks like a chip on the bottom right die. A monster to say the least. Exciting times in semis.
