I think AMD is wise not to talk too much about Epyc right now. In the end (HPC) users need computers and not processors. And I'm not convinced that there will be a huge Epyc based product line-up from the large manufacturers very soon. They are busy with the new Skylake server platform. That's why (afaik) today the CL3150 of HPE is the only concrete Epyc based server that has been announced. And this is a machine for the Cloud. So, I think the whole Epyc business will need some more time. And I prefer that AMD take their time now. The Ryzen CPUs were launched in a hurry and that caused AMD, the computer manufacturers and the customers some trouble (i.e. “endless” firmware updates). We don't want this to happen again with the servers and workstations needed for serious work.

Agreed, the noise will come soon enough, once momentum builds organically, and ecosystem is truly ready.That said, HPE is not the only game in town coming out with EPYC servers.http://tyan.com/campaign/amd/amd_epyc_platforms
