So just wasn't sure if there was a lot of EPYC + consumer card usage as well as how well ROCm works these days when multiple cards are not the same model?

    'ken is done:

    ZghOT0eRm4U9s/q2-q4!

    took 4+ days on an AMD Radeon Vega64 running hashcat at about 930MH/s
    during that time (those familiar know the hash-rate fluctuates and
    slows down towards the end).'

    I am waiting for a 2p board to support Rome before moving on from my 4x6378 opteron system. These seem to be taking a long time to be available from most manufacturers.

    But I think with both mobos you have to ensure to get the second revision with 32 MB BIOS/UEFI flash.
    Unfortunately the ASUS board doesn't support Rome. The Supermicro does support Rome only as a "Rev 2" model, similar to ASRock Rack. Unfortunately the ones at $399 USD at least from US retailers appears to be Rev 1 still.

    (I had been searching for several weeks to figure out the best value Rome motherboard, so far it still is the ASRock Rack EPYCD8 AFAIK.)

    Cheaping out on the BIOS chip on these high-cost boards seems to be a really bad mistake of the motherboard makers. And if I were a customer of such a board, I'd be upset about it as it undermines the upgradeability promise AMD made and influences the TCO negatively. I wonder to whom they are marketing these 32Mbit/PCIE 3.0 boards as most new customers should be better served to go straight to the PCIE 4.0 capable boards. And I doubt that customers of the old revision will swap out these boards with the newer revision.
