  1. Just had a random idea. Imagine one of these:

    But with the following CPU options:

    The following choices of [PC4-19200 DDR4-2400 ECC registered RDIMM] RAM:

    • 8GB (either 4x2GB or 2x4GB)
    • 16GB (either 4x4GB or 2x8GB)
    • 32GB (either 4x8GB or 2x16GB)

    The following choices of SATA III SSD's:

    • 256GB, TLC or 3D-TLC, DRAM-cached, over-provisioned
    • 512GB, TLC or 3D-TLC, DRAM-cached, over-provisioned
    • 1024GB, TLC or 3D-TLC, DRAM-cached, over-provisioned

    The following choices of SATA III HDD's (where 1TB = 1024GB):

    • (1x, 2x, 3x) 1TB, 7200RPM or 10kRPM, 256MB cache, 2.5 inch form factor
    • (1x, 2x, 3x) 2TB, 7200RPM or 10kRPM, 256MB cache, 2.5 inch form factor
    • (1x, 2x, 3x) 4TB, 7200RPM or 10kRPM, 256MB cache, 2.5 inch form factor

    The following choices of GPUs, attached via a riser cable (low-profile build):

    • 1x AMD FirePro or Radeon Pro (Vega) AIB
    • 1x nVIDIA Quadro or Tesla (Volta) AIB

    in a slim, low-profile case of sorts. Perhaps Noctua fans could handle the cooling? The Xeon D lineup is meant to act as an in-between for Intel Atom and Xeon E3, and is okay for certain tasks and workloads. A low-profile/SFF render box or general work box sounds like a nice idea (ignoring costs). Imagine that screwed to the back of a VESA-compatible monitor with a shroud to cover it (and make it look like a 2-in-one). 

     

    A hacintosh using that would be pretty lit IMO - especially for use as a low-power workstation :D Or even Windows Server 2016...

      The $1800 is for that 16C you listed, mine is like $800 or so I think but I got the board for like $600 on sale. Not an economic platform.

      That's the base price charged to OEMs before their special deal prices they may or may not negotiate.

      @2FA Just found your mobo - it's way cheaper than what I originally listed:

      I wonder if I could use this for a mobile workstation 🤔
