We ordered a system with an EPYC CPU and an A100 yesterday. It won't arrive until June so reviews will have to wait. I'm really looking forward to it.

Eye roll. Having so many cores means that you still have to have a master core that organises all the others and it ends up with massive overheads. They need to change the Core ISA to work natively with multicore and move back to a similar system to the Cell in the PS3...
I'd hate to think how much of a waste of money this is, and what useless tasks they are putting it through?!
