Where to buy an EPYC 7551P?

Jump to solution

Have a relative that says they're open to make a significant contribution to either IBM's World Community Grid.
As the Grid is CPU bound they would need plenty of CPU cores, some RAM, and just about no other server-grade features.

From the slideshows I've seen, epycs that fit in dual sockets will cost twice as much (or are they simply including the cost of two epycs?)

So the (relatively) cheapest motherboard with a single Epyc socket will do?

I told them I'd check to see what that would cost, but uh, I can't see the processor sold by itself anywhere.
The AMD store is still selling old Opterons, and the partner companies don't have prices.

Do I have any options other than just waiting?

Thanks in advance!

I'm asking about the line of chips for server boards.

a 7281 (2P) will be cheaper than a 1P. But you get a slower MHz for bargain price. I think it a question of yield.  Asking a 2P chip to talk to another at high speed is one more test to fail in the factory.

I've been there, to each of the channel partners, ETC.  Everything is either marked as 'coming soon' or is a package deal/rack with a bunch of extras and still no price listed.

AMD sells server chips on their website, but it's all old stuff and hasn't been updated with the new supply.  Unless there's breathtaking OEM demand or serious supply issues, I'm not sure why it's so much tougher to pick up an EPYC than, for example, Intel's E5 V4 series, which is available to anybody from Amazon and SuperBiz and Newegg and B&H and Ebay.
