- [STH] ASRock Rack ROMED6U-2L2T Review AMD EPYC in mATX
This is perfect for home labs.ID: guqhuku
I’m currently using an x470d4u with a 3700x and 64GB ECC which I’d think is better for most home use. I wonder where price parity comes into play, RDIMM vs UDIMM and Ryazan vs Epyc. I’d guess the desktop CPUs are probably better at single threaded performance (at a reasonable price point), but I’m not sure how easy it is to compare. But single thread performance is probably more important for a home user.ID: guqrk0m
How is that board? I'll probably end up moving to it eventually when it's time to replace my Haswell Xeon and SuperMicro X10, I just haven't managed to justify it to myself yet.
Holy cow, that is an amazing amount of i/o for an mATX board!ID: gupxg87
Agreed. This board is bonkers.
I miss green pcb. Server mobos remind me of a time when everything didn't have to be ultra l33t gam3r with inefficient chunks of aluminum as heatsinks.ID: gupny7r
I agree. You can still get green PCBs if you buy workstation boards from people like Supermicro. I like the tastefulness of ASUS’s Threadripper Pro boards too.ID: gupof94
This. Though I feel more nostalgic for the motherboard colour schemes of the 2000s especially the Gigabyte AM2/AM2+ motherboards from that time.ID: guptnpr
Bring back Asus orange-brown and MSI red while we’re at it.ID: guqivo8
That motherboard design reminds me of the old school Pentium Pro days, I had a dual Pentium Pro with memory slots and VRM slots all over the place.ID: gurb8jb
Mmm... my first board was a Tyan Titan Pro ATX. What a great piece of kit that was. It had removable CPU VRM's if I recall.
I cannot wait to not have to fiddle with that giant ATX plug on my next mobo, 12v to rule all voltages!ID: gus5mgr
I have no idea what you're talking about, but I'm curious. Is the 24-pin ATX connector supposedly being replaced with something else?
ASRock seem to really slay everyone else when it comes to small form factor. It's possibly because none of the other larger players actually try, so ASRock cleans up with these crazy awesome boards.
