A few tech sites have gotten their grubby mits on the new EPYC Rome CPUs, with some dual-CPU configurations tested resulting in an insane 128C/256T of total CPU power. Phoronix, AnandTech, and Hexus all have reviews posted on the new EPYC Rome CPUs, some links for your nerd-out reading pleasure:

Final Thoughts

I'm not a server CPU reviewer, but rather a technology-obsessed enthusiast. From my perspective, AMD has a total game-changer on its hands (something I've believed from the very day EPYC and Zen architecture were announced).

It wasn't just a road to recovery for AMD, but rather a total rebirth from the inside out. It has one of the largest tech companies in the world (Intel, in case you didn't work it out) shaking in their boots. It has seen Dr. Lisa Su turned into a celebrity (and rightfully so), and another ass-kicking against Intel with its new Ryzen 3000 series desktop CPUs dominating sales and winning gamers hearts over.

The next 12-24 months are going to be very interesting for AMD, as we will see EPYC Rome continue to win contracts in more and more servers and designs. The server CPU market share will continue to expand for AMD which sits at around 3% right now, and another tripling to 10% is expected. Just 12 months ago AMD didn't even have 1% of the server market, so to be at 3% at the eve of second-gen EPYC is... well... EPYC.
