neo, Re: AMD has the perfect architecture these days with chiplets to make custom server CPUs>

IMO the best reason for chiplets is to get heat out of the area of the CPU.

On those pictures from a week or so ago did you notice the reflection of the photographers face on one CPU? In another picture there was a reflection of a hand with middle finger extended.

I'd guess that kind of milling and polishing to get the fit of the cooler across the CPU and the auxiliary chips does not come cheap. It looked like mirror finish to me.

Mirrors and window glass are "Finished" by floating on liquid Tin. That won't work for stuff with solder which melts at lots lower temperatures.

It'll get figured out, but I doubt mirror finishes and thick coatings of silver in grease will be a long time solution.

MCMs just move the heat problem around. (as far as I can fathom, else MOBOs could do the job. ) The next real problem(IMO) is Multi chip real coolers.

Still in for around 6K shares, down from 10,
