    32c/64t Epyc 7551P $376

    7371 is a little out of budget unfortunately. Almost triple the price of the 7551p over here.

    32c/64t Epyc 7551P $376

    That's about a 50USD premium still though. Are these platforms accessible to international users?

    32c/64t Epyc 7551P $376

    Not seeing any $500 7601s. Unless you mean the Dell locked ones. Was thinking of upgrading my dual E5-2670 proxmox host so it's even before Hardwell. Figured the core count and speed is roughly similar. PCIe pass through is a must, is it an issue? For a deep learning system it wouldn't be a...

    32c/64t Epyc 7551P $376

    Is it sufficient to see the CPU model in bios/system information or can that be faked?

    32c/64t Epyc 7551P $376

    I picked up a ROMED8-2T from Amazon warehouse on prime day for 300. Been looking for a CPU for some time.How would I test for abnormalities? I read somewhere these could be bin rejects as well

    LS-26 to C14 PSU cable

    Yea the direct conversion cables are either out of stock or have been quoted at absurd prices. More than ordering replacement PSUs with the standard C13s actually. Would rather order fresh PSUs than pay that much for the cables that won't be used at all after this batch of PSUs fail. Obviously a...

    LS-26 to C14 PSU cable

    Hello, I have had the misfortune of purchasing Dell PSUs with the absolutely stupid LS-26 connector I've been scouring places for LS-26 cables to splice into the standard C14 but I haven't been able to find any that has been in stock. Anyone knows where I can find something I can use? I...

    i9-7980XE $426USD

    I looked at these when they were $300+. I gave them a pass. #1 reason being, lack of ECC. Also, the X299 motherboards were pretty expensive for their limited capabilities. I also considered the X570 WS + 5900X. The mobo was going for $200+ on prime day used. I passed as well as the Ryzens are...

    EPYC vs 2xTR?

    Workload is GPU rental for Deep Learning. Usually jobs are 1-4x GPU slices so workload definitely can be split.

    EPYC vs 2xTR?

    Oh I don't mean 2x TR on the same system. I was comparing the overheads between two separate TR systems vs 1x EPYC.

    EPYC vs 2xTR?

    Hello, Looking to rent 4x3090s and 3x3080Tis on vast.ai. Would an EPYC setup make more sense than 2x ThreadRipper setups? Thanks
