Hello everyone,

Does anyone know if the AMD EPYC 7742 64-Core 100-000000053-04 is compatible with Enterprise Dell/HPe servers?

Please note this is the -04 version, not retail.

Thanks!

I've seen a -04 boot in a Lenovo but can't confirm HPe/Dell, but there is no reason they shouldn't work - they share microcodes with the retail samples. Do note that once you put the chip in a Dell server it is locked to Dell forever, which rather severely affects its resale value.

thats unclear !
the seller (taobao) of my 100-000000054-04 sayd the QS variants are unlocked and not Vendor Lockable.
i have never seen a -04 chip which is sold as "runs on Dell only" i.e.
