I write application-level software, and I'll be needing to replace my main
dev machine presently.
Are there any AM4 motherboards that are aimed at people doing engineering
rather than playing games? Stable, reliable motherboards?
All the AM4 boards I can find from the usual suspects appear to be aimed at status-conscious
gamers and overclockers who are willing to keep splashing out for boards made of run-of-the-fab
parts that produce high failure rates out of the box and short lifespans--as long as those
motherboards have attractive color schemes and the latest bells and whistles.
If there are boards being made for people who just want a stable system that will stay good
until the technology is superseded, I've not found them. Supermicro are bringing out that
single-socket Epyc board, but it's anyone's guess when it will ship.
