    Base level one of these in a new HP Microserver would be nice..

    It always annoys me that the Xeon E line is referred to as server processors. They're just as much used for entry-level workstations, if not more. They're basically Core i processors with a few features less fused off.

    Before I upgraded to a Ryzen processor I might've been all over these. Luckily, AMD doesn't artifically segment their processors quite as much as Intel.

    Yeah I moved to AMD when I dropped from mATX to iTX for my home server, from an i7-3770s to a Ryzen 3400G, x570 will give me a better upgrade path as well..

    I was initially interested but these CPUs have only 20 user-accessible PCIe v4 lanes when 32 are needed - 16 for GPU, 8 for second card, and 2x 4 for two NVME drives for 32 in total.

    The low total RAM capacity is troubling.

    Amount of lanes seem low on both sides of the fence though, also in most consumer platforms, unless you really spit in.

    I'm sure they will turn up, but beyond graphics cards I haven't seen any PCIe4 cards around. My work machine has a dual 25GbE card (x8) and an SDI video interface (x4) but despite being expensive bandwidth monsters they are only PCIe gen 3 and gen 2
