Does anyone want an Epyc CPU in a regular non server specific case?

For the low low price of just $14,699 (CPUs come pre-installed and validated, but coolers not included) you can have your very own dual-Epyc board for your E-ATX format case.

And if two CPUs is a bit much, you can get the single socket version for the super-low low price of just $5,399 (CPU also comes pre-installed and validated, but cooler also not included). This board is a standard ATX board, for more case compatibility.

What can these CPUs do? Well: a new Cinebench R20 world record was achieved using a dual Epyc 7742 CPUs, @ stock with air cooling. the R20 runs take less than 8 seconds to complete ...

EDIT

Here's a video talking about these two boards:

so you will buy an enormous server cpu just for fun? Because you know you can't use it normally on everyday stuff and gaming?

How else will i be able to run Minesweeper?

Jokes aside, i didn't know one could get an Epyc CPU to run in a standard (E-)ATX board, barring heavy modifications, like what der8auer did to be able to run an Epyc CPU in a TR board.

Besides, these are fully feature boards: take a close look @ their specs and you'll see.

I sure would like to see a company like Synology offer EPYC CPUs in their NAS boxes like they do Xeons...

Easy to use Docker containers & VMs by the dozen... :D

No i would never use an epyc cpu in any thing than server use.

Reason is first of all, all the epyc cpu's even the lowest core count are fairly low clocked on cores and that is bad for gaming performance that is my main use on my pc.

And even when i have use for more cores the ryzen 9 3950X with 16 cores and high core clock. Is a perfect cpu for my needs.

For those that need more than 16 cores and also high core clock. Threadripper is a better choise any way as i think threadripper will have higher core clock and still up to 64 cores.

Only reason i can see for why put epyc cpu in a every day pc is if there are a need for more than 64 cores or in a use where a powerful butt also power efficient cpu is needed. Else ryzen or threadripper is a way better choise in my opinion.

That is uncertain @ this time: it's possible the flagship TR CPU will have "just" 48 higher clocked cores (VS Epyc).

For those that use many (and i mean many) VMs or those that do certain typed of workloads that benefit from more cores rather than higher clocks, these boards are just perfect, except for price, ofc.

???

der8auer's video? works for me.

EDIT

I had the wrong news story in my previous post: that has been corrected with the video i wanted to link.

Also corrected the link in this post: it's the same video as my now corrected previous post.

I think 7401 is a much better deal. $3300 for dual 48-core kit, very similar clocks and reasonable TDP.
Just top it off with a couple of Noctua NH-U9 SP3 coolers and it's good to go.

As far as servers go, that's probably the best bang for the buck ATM. I only wish my apt. renovations to end, so I can get something like this for a closet VM server )))

That’s not working... LOL.
It's even funnier than you think.
ASUS might've f#$ed up a bit with their user-friendly and still obscure text descriptions, cause in AMI Aptio V for TR/Epyc that POST code 0xD0 means "CPU initialization error" (at least according to the datasheet).

Both are.

To my knowledge, it's rare to have server boards in regular non server format. The only other case i'm aware of is the one der8auer hacked an Epyc CPU + TR board and paired them together, which is why i mentioned it in the 1st place.

He never got it fully working, though.

When he was overclocking, it was done on a server board. Moreover, he was using the I2C bus to control things like VRM OCP, actual voltage and the frequency of the CPU as well.

You were referring to the board used by der8auer with his Epyc CPU: that was a Threadripper board and he did manage to get it working. In fact he simulated a 2990WX with the Epyc CPU (before 2990WX was launched), overclocking it to over 4GHz. I corrected the video link in my other replies: it shows the Epyc CPU working in a TR board.

Since you didn't quote what you were referring to, i thought you were talking about the two boards in the OP: both are, as i said, Epyc specific boards and come with the CPU pre-installed and validated.

Here's a video discussing the two boards:

Would be good for a small lab computing node. The the university HPC is getting really inconvenient for daily usage: cost, down time, regulation of software loaded and etc.

However I’d rather get a ThreadRipper for that nice 4GHz+ single core boost. After all most of the applications in genomics are still single threaded.

For such scenarios, these CPUs are really a bad match.

That wouldn't work well, EYPC is generally very poor in WCG and the same goes for TR, the perf/watt is only with ryzen.

I only see H11SLL-i in this vid, which is a single-socket SP3 board (not TR4). Since there was no follow-up since 2018 I can safely assume Roman did not manage to magically make it work with tape stickers and bent pins :nutkick:

To my knowledge, it's rare to have server boards in regular non server format.
There have always been server boards in ATX/uATX format. (I'm not going back before ATX)
That wouldn't work well, EYPC is generally very poor in WCG and the same goes for TR, the perf/watt is only with ryzen.
If you're going to run TR/EPYC for WCG, you MUST run Linux and limit the WU's that run on it.
Still a miss.
Are you guys looking for this

It would work. Optimal isn't the question. I would use it for wcg.

EDIT: We have already done the math. That is how crazy we are for WCG. It doesn't matter how poor the performance/watt is or the perf/$ is, we did the math, because we can dream alright. I STAND BY MY STATEMENT THAT I WOULD ENJOY USING ONE OF THESE EPYC CPU'S FOR WCG.

"The AMD EPYC 7742 is the Rome processor at the top of their stack with 64 cores / 128 threads, 2.25GHz base frequency, 3.4GHz boost frequency, and a 225 Watt TDP..., and will command a retail price around $6,950 USD." Credit: https://www.phoronix.com

That works out to $109 per core. The 3950X, at $750, costs $47 per core
Power consumption? His testing showed it peaked at 405 watts, for the 2P system! (CPU power only) (actually lower than TDP)

So, 8 Ryzen 3950X's or 2 EPYC 7742's for 128 CORES?



EDIT: EPYC system has built in VGA. Ryzen systems would need a video card for setup.
600w ran 24/7 at my national average of 12 cents a killowat equals $51.84 a month. 1360w would equal $117.504 a month.

Without accounting for inflation, rising energy costs, or carbon externalities it would take 8.5 years for the EPYC system to break even with the 8 ryzen systems.
