    It's 8+1 chiplet EPYCs... there's no space left at all on that substrate, and the I/O die is used in full.

    But with 128 PCI-e 4.0 lanes per CPU, why would you care about iGPU? The board can have 8 !!! full bandwidth high-performance GPUs, if needed.

    We enthusiasts tend to think we are the s*** and act entitled at times, but THIS is THE purpose of the technology - to help further our understanding of nature and universe.

    I know that it is merely a tool, but I can't help but get excited whenever scientists get access to harder, better, faster, stronger tools :).

    It's a shame, hopefully people in my country see sense and stay in and continue to work together on projects like this instead of arguing over falsehoods and lies.

    As the science community is basically international anyway I'd say, I guess there will be enough cooperation down the road. These people are smart enough to work together :)

    I kinda wish the old skool designs were still in situ for CRAY, I always thought they were designed by sci-fi artists fresh from a 1970's B movie...

    Now? Now they look like soda-pop despensers

    Next year we are getting a new supercomputer here with peak performance estimated at ~ 200+ PFLOP/s - maybe that's enough for a Crysis party....Might need some cooling...
