    In light of Intel including ECC RDIMM support with the W-2200 series, 4 channel @ 2933 MHz, any idea as to how the similarly priced Intel Xeon W-2255 stacks up against the AMD Epyc 7302P for workstation use, such as photo/video editing in the $800-$850 price range?

    $798 Intel W-2255 (3.7 / 4.5GHz) (4.7GHz 4-core TB3) (10C/20T) (19.25MB) (165W) (FCLGA2066)
    $825 Epyc 7302P (3.0 / 3.3GHz) (16C/32T) (128MB) (155/180W) (SP3)

    Regarding motherboards, it looks like the Supermicro X11SRL-F might be a viable option if Supermicro updates the bios, similar to what they are planning to do with the X11SPA series.

    Looking at the mess that is the upgrade path from Naples to Rome (or lack thereof), I would not count on the second part of your statement.

    Teething issues are part of every new platform, it's a catch-22 at this point I guess: a broken as **** platform or Swiss Cheese CPUs.

    I’m still waiting on some viable Epyc 7002 motherboard options that contain PCI-E 4.0. At this point, with Epyc 7003 launch in Q3 2020, I’m wondering if I should just scrap the whole Epyc 7002 build plan and pick up a nice 14 core E5-2600 v3 to hold me over for a year or two?
