Awww... that's hardly fair when you look at Xeon pricing.

I was expecting jokes more along the lines that "demand for Radeon Instinct accelerators is so low they have to give them away!"

** crickets chirping **

Anyway, good for AMD. I hope it helps.
Hahaha. I love the EPYC of course. It's amazing what they did.

So is this them sending out hardware or them offering cloud computing time?
It's not really made clear by the wording.
My read is that AMD is offering to give away $15M worth of equipment, either directly or through the COVID-19 HPC Consortium. I don't really get the point of having two avenues, but whatever.

Also, if AMD hosts any sort of cloud computing service, that'd be news to me. Nvidia does, however.
