It's a server chip. Results on Epyc have... not been great for that from what I've seen, but it's also not something most people try (I looked around a bit before deciding to go with the SoC version a few months back - still haven't picked it up). Rome tended to be extremely expensive for folks even on the enthusiast spectrum (and this is from a guy with both a 10980XE and 3960X), and the motherboards (again) are shit for what you want to do. Basic things like getting a good 3d card to work with games is hit-or-miss, same for audio cards or consumer USB devices a lot of the time (outside a keyboard or mouse). They're not tested or supported for any of that, so there's no effort to try (doubly so when most of the CPUs have either been somewhat flawed (first gen Epyc), or extremely expensive (Zen2 Epyc)). This is where TR Pro and TR are supposed to live - why buy epyc when you can get one of those?Have a source or just assuming?
Sure, for $2500Viable competitor?
72F3 boosts to 4.1 but is it overclockable? Has 256MB L3 Cache vs 32MB on the 5800X.
What socket is it, anyone know?
EPYC 73F3 with 16 cores 256MB L3 Cache also looks tasty.
Wow. Was way off. Didn’t think they were making competitors to the specialized xeons for amdSure, for $2500
That is a server part optimised for expensive per core licensed software. Same with the 16 core version for $3500.
