ASRock Rack ROME2D16-2T – Phoronix

The ASRock Rack ROME2D16-2T is available from retail Internet channels like NewEgg currently for a price of $719 USD, which is on the more cost effective side for an AMD EPYC 2P motherboard in today’s economic conditions. Supermicro EPYC 2P motherboards at NewEgg meanwhile are $800~1080 with similar feature-sets. There isn’t a whole lot of different retail motherboards currently available for EPYC Milan 2P so if looking to assemble a cost effective EPYC Milan server, the ROME2D16-2T will likely be among the more affordable options.

GIGABYTE MZ72-HB0 – AnandTech

As with many server-focused motherboards, even in more ‘standard’ form factors, the GIGABYTE MZ72-HB0 focuses mainly on functionality and substance over style. GIGABYTE has opted for its typical blue-colored PCB, with the same theme stretching to the sixteen memory slots on the board. Looking at memory support, the MZ72-HB0 supports up to 2 TB per socket, in eight-channel memory mode, focusing on memory up to DDR4-3200 RDIMM, LRDIMM, and 3DS varieties all supported. As this is a dual-socket EPYC motherboard, there are two SP3 sockets with four horizontally mounted memory slots on either side, and each socket can house processors up to 280 W TDP.

ASRock Launches Deep Mini-ITX EPYC Board

The ASRock ROMED4ID-2T features a socket SP3 and supports AMD’s EPYC 7002-series processors in the LGA4094 packaging. The manufacturer does not disclose how much power the motherboard can deliver to the CPU or the list of processors compatible with the unit. But it is unlikely that this particular platform is designed for the highest-end EPYC chips.

ASRock Rack ROMED8-2T

Our ASRock Rack ROMED8-2T review is one we have been excited about for some time. A key feature with the AMD EPYC 7002 Series codenamed “Rome” is that it exposes a large number of PCIe lanes even in a single-socket configuration. There are some practical constraints to putting a full AMD EPYC 7002 single-socket platform on an ATX form factor motherboard so many examples we have seen to date make major trade-offs.

ASRock Rack EPYCD8-2T

The ASRock Rack EPYCD8-2T is an ATX sized single LGA 4094 socket option designed for AMD’s EPYC processors. The board has an all-green PCB and has a transposed CPU socket designed for more efficient airflow when installed into a 1U or related chassis type. Memory support stretches across eight slots with support for RDIMMS up to 32 GB, and LRDIMMs up to 128 GB per slot.

Despite the GIGABYTE MZ31-AR0 being a server motherboard, it uses the regular E-ATX form factor, with with a single SP3 socket that, depending on the revision of the board, supports Naples (rev 1.x) or both Naples and EPYC (rev 2.x). This ranges from base 8 cores 16 thread model (EPYC 7251), all the way to a 64 core and 128 thread variant (EPYC 7742).

Supermicro H11SSL-NC Rev 2

It is not often at STH that we test a specific revision of a motherboard. Our Supermicro H11SSL-NC Rev 2 is one of those rare occasions. The “Rev 2” indicates that it is an updated platform capable of taking the AMD EPYC 7002 Series “Rome” processors. All of the H11SSL-NC motherboards being produced today should say Rev 2.00 as our review unit does.

The Gigabyte MZ01-CE1 this is one of the only GPU optimized, single socket AMD EPYC, ATX motherboards on the market. While AMD EPYC truly shines in motherboards that tightly integrate with chassis, the ATX “channel” market is essential since that often trailblazes new use cases. That is where the Gigabyte MZ01-CE1 targets.

The Gigabyte MZ01-CE0 motherboard is one of the second salvos of AMD EPYC motherboards. When AMD EPYC first launched, the first motherboards offered had some reasonably specific use cases in mind. In this second salvo we are seeing from vendors, motherboards are coming out that are more general purpose in nature.

AMD has really been taking the fight to Intel over the last year. Ryzen has made AMD a viable CPU option for gamers and enthusiasts while Threadripper is outstanding for workstations. But arguably the big money – and the most important battle – is at the highest end of the market. This is where EPYC comes in, and industrial-strength motherboards like the Gigabyte MZ01-CE0 (rev. 1.0) on test here.
