The AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors were announced in 2018 at Computex. While a few vendors have announced support and models, we are just now starting to see them roll out. We just finished up a review on the first one in our lab, and we’re happy to see another one in the form of the Supermicro AS-5014A-TT. This new workstation leverages the AMD CPUs which can provide up to 64 cores and 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes. The workstation can be outfitted with up to 2TB of ECC DDR4 3200MHz memory. The AS-5014A-TT has 10GbE onboard and six PCIe expansion slots. The workstation supports four 2.5″ or 3.5″ storage bays with SATA interface internal, two 2.5″ SATA drive bays externally, and four M.2 bays.

The Supermicro AS-5014A-TT is aimed at pro users with the goal of boosting their productivity. Use cases include media content creation, scientific research, visualization, deep learning (DL) and artificial intelligence (AI), virtual or augmented reality (VR/AR), and 3-D modeling with real-time simulation.
