    AMD Naplies 32 cpu cores and 64 cpu threads with 8 channel DDR4 memory !

    And vendors ability to offer 4 nodes in 2U rackspace, assuming each node is dual cpu means up to 256 cpu cores and 512 cpu threads in a 2U rackspace :)

    I like the idea of those 256 cores per 2u.
    No idea about prices, right?
    How would a duallie compare to a 3770 cheap intel stuff that does a great job btw

    Like e312xx vx?
    If so then I hope they have much better performance since I only execute a client (can't make any tweaks) and if I can get an affordable cpu that can process bigger quantity of data then it's what I've been expecting for years :)

    question is how much they'll end up asking for the dual socket board.
    Also IIRC it makes use of DDR4.
    Not sure it's going to be something cheap in the short term, maybe it may have it's prices dropped quicky ala AMD :)
    Intel on the other side does not drop the pricings of their cpus so drastically.. maybe because of their monopoly.

    Possibility of AMD X390 and X399 AM44 socket boards for AMD Zen/Ryzen 16 cpu core processors https://wccftech.com/rumor-chipset-...-motherboards-leak-hint-existence-lga-socket/
    Dam server cpu race is going to be interesting to watch. Thanks AMD !

    Hope they end up with some crazy quad socket setups with low tdp cpus :)

    Yeah .. more interested in AMD Zen and LGA socket. If anyone remembers old AMD s939 sockets and 'bent pin' or 'broken pin' issue, you'd know why I prefer LGA socket design :)

    I had a hunch here apparently.
    Would kill for a dual twin setup(Naples)

    Yeah server side ain't cheap, but hope it will be relative to Intel's server side cpus. Then let the price wars begin :D

    One Dual 2x AMD Zen 2 48 cpu/96 thread server would have 96 cpu cores and 192 cpu threads and clocked high, would be equivalent to 24x quad core Intel Xeon E3 servers with Hyperthreading !

    I will make sure to play with those 192 threads when available ( at a good price)
