    Comes with dual 3200W power supplies.....

    Ouch that's awful performance per watt

    Any reason you should go for anything other than Epyc based hardware?

    If you need low core count, single thread performance. Intel has that particular crown. For now, anyway.

    Also AVX-512. Again, only until AMD throws that into the mix.

    It is a big deal to see Gigabyte push into the 4-socket server space. One will notice another small nugget in that these systems are not using the Intel C620A PCH’s for their Intel 700 series 10GbE. Instead, Gigabyte is using a new Intel X710-AT2 NIC for onboard 10GbE connectivity. Jonathan from https://redbytesite.com/

    It's not that bad, the chips are only 250 W each. For a server like this RAM starts taking a significant fraction of the power, and then there's whatever they user puts in the expansion slots

    More PCIe lanes, even if they are only gen 3, and ludicrous RAM capacity - up to 6 TB of DDR4 total (epyc boxes top out at 4) and that's without optane. There's no 4 socket epyc options, so if you can't fit the workload on a two socket machine then intel is your only option
