    Nice! Does this support ECC? Is it socketed? So many questions! :D

    ECC - yes.
    Socketed - no (embedded chip.)

    When can I buy one and how much will it cost? Hopefully significantly less than an 8 core Xeon-D.....

    An Epyc 3000 chip?! :O

    Tell us more! Especially "where can I buy the motherboard from" and "how many harvested kidneys will I need"?

    I know... Easier to find Santa's workshop than an EPYC 3000 series board.

    Rumor has it system will be available next month.

    We tend to get these types of products efore they are launched.

    Trying to figure out if this is going live tomorrow or Monday (against VMworld day 1), or wait until Wednesday of next week.

    TLDR usually loses to EPYC 7251 by a bit. Blows the D-1541 away.

    Well, let's hope that they are not as expensive as those freaking D1541s, or that they are as power-sipping. Waited for almost 3 years for the prices to come down or for a more viable competitor to emerge. I think my wallet is ready for the damages.

    It will be interesting to see if they just spec it like the Ryzen in an embedded form or if the extra GMI Serial Transceivers normally used for Infinity Fabric can be used for PCIe. From Epyc, we know the PCIe can be used for IF. That could allow for 16x more lanes of PCIe than Ryzen. 32x PCIe3 would be a good match for the Atom D-15xx.

    Edit: Actually, NVM, EPYC Embedded - AMD - WikiChip That says 32PCIe.

    Finally! It's been too long period with Intel having virtually no competition for their Xeon D-series! Looking forward to see the solutions offered by vendors, more specifically Supermicro.

    Well given that the usual server vendors haven't been in a rush to make any Epyc 3000 boards I'm guessing that whatever's in Patrick's hands is likely a specialised network appliance rather than something you or I might use in lieu of a Xeon-D mobo... but I live in hope! Although Supermicro don't seem interested at all for whatever reason.

    I hope this gets released soon. I just couldn't justify Xeon D for homelab usage (much too expensive). Hopefully AMD gets to releasing an entry level Zen server platform also.

    Socket AM4 being subdimensioned for 24 PCIe Lanes instead of Zen full 32 is one of the reasons why I find the embedded single die EPYC far more interesing. I lost track of how many times I ranted about that! Same with official ECC support. Is also more than probable that Motherboards for these have a BMC.
    I hope that there are viable Motherboards with embedded EPYC 3000 for rebellious prosumers. I simply can't stand mainstream consumer Motherboards any longer.

    I told a few folks this morning. I actually pulled the review and slotted the Lenovo piece today. ETA is now next week. I was looking over some data and am re-testing. Also, we may get a bit more data next week. Today would have had to have been a preview rather than a formal benchmarking piece.

    However, since I did promise something, here is a bit more data for folks.
