Remotely monitor and manage your server or PC with Pulseway at - try it for free.

AMD Epyc Processors fetch a high price tag for the consumer space but they're primarily used for more commercial or business uses. We take a look at the server that you would see them in, and poke around and see what it can do!

Check out AMD's new 3rd gen EPYC CPUs at

    "What do you use this for?" - The same as with 99% of all servers, to further consolidate more VMs/Containers into smaller space, power & cooling than the same amout of performance used to require. You don't litterally do one thing on it at a time and buy a new server for the next task.

    A true benchmark for something like this is to turn it into an hypervisor and just drop a hundred VMs on it. Or do something real insane and put Docker on it and see how many instances you can put on it.

    7:50 PTSD flashback to when i bricked my ABit BH6 by rom-hacking in a custom BIOS splash screen and borking the process... Yes this was a thing that was possible, and yes, i wasn't the only one who bricked my board. The splash screen was nice, though, i even think i got it working on the new BIOS chip *Insert final fantasy victory music here*
    I did fix that board after a while, by ordering a new BIOS ROM chip with a good BIOS on it, just because it was my precious.

      Also, my custom splash screen was about as elaborate as the one in this video =D Not bad for 1999/2000 though! Blue-green tealish "GeFeldz" on a black background, it did feel kind of awesome next to the "Dell" and "Packard Bell" splash screens when i booted up my rig at the LAN party!

    Almost 800 watts of theoretical power draw from the CPUs and the fans alone... Boy are those fans blowie-matron moniker deserving.
    Anyway, a 1000 watt PSU for that system seems like bare minimum! Populating all of the drive carriers with 2.5" 7200 rpm spinning rust? That would probably challenge the OCP in the PSU, unless there's staggered spin-up. Not that anyone would be so intergalactically stupid as to try something like that?! *Wink* * Nudge* *Please-for-the-memes?*

    We actually do high performance virtualization with systems like this. The high core counts mean you can run a much larger number of virtual machines and containers before seeing any kind of real contention or performance issues.
