Many smaller workstation providers hurry to fill a very lucrative niche. Companies like Coreto, Scan, Velocity Micro, and Boston have few options before the computer giants (Lenovo, HP, and Dell) jump on AMD's EPYC bandwagon.
The EPYC 7702 is currently the best option out there if you are looking for the pinnacle of desktop performance – say it, you won't find anything from Intel that is anywhere near what the AMD Romeo CPU has to offer.
Rome has 64 cores and 128 threads, and you can couple two together to maintain the computing power found in supercomputers a few decades ago.
At $ 51
How can this be compared to a for example? ] a-X2 from Mediaworkstations with the EPYC 7702?
First of all, the a-X2 is a little more expensive at just over $ 53,000 (around £ 41,500 / AU $ 81,800). However, you get two 64-core processors, 2 TB of memory, a pair of Nvidia Quadro RTX 8000-GPU with 48 GB of GDDR6 memory and 8.68 TB of high-speed memory. A three-year warranty with on-site service on the next working day is also provided to reassure you.
While the case (adorned with two 200mm front intake fans) isn't as tempting as the aluminum case on the Mac Pro, you get so much more for your money.
While media workstations ship internationally, you may have to pay additional taxes depending on your location.
