    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

                                              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.
