    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.

                                                            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.

They did it with last gen TR, but really who buys this CPU for gaming??
