    Future Scalability from Single Socket to Dual Socket

    jesse_amd

      Is it possible to purchase a dual socket EPYC motherboard and only populate one socket?

          Yes.  It is up to the individual server manufacturer on what they will support, but if you purchase a dual socket capable server platform and put in a dual socket capable processor initially, you can then add a second equivalent processor into the 2nd socket down the line.

           

          There are single socket only EPYC processors that will operate in the first socket of a dual socket platform, but a second processor will never function with it.
