1 "buy, sell and enjoy high-quality digital artwork”

There is something delightful about the abuse of the word "digital" as an analogue for "created on a computer", espetially re artwork.  I mean, fingerpainting is still a thing, right?

2 So, if one wanted to play around with AVX-512 at home, is there an inexpensive cpu/mobo out there?
Is Intel’s bios disabling just a thing for their own boards, or do other manufacturer’s incorporate it as well?

3 EdH, if you can get an Alder Lake that hasn't had the access disabled, and a motherboard with an older bios (and then make sure the bios and microcode don't get updated) you might be able to do it.  I have an i5-12600K with an Asus motherboard I bought in February; CPU-Z doesn't show AVX-512 support, so I don't know if I got a chip with it disabled or if a later update killed it.
Looks like the Rocket Lake Xeon E 2300 series supports it, but the cheapest CPU I found with a quick search was the 2324G, a quad-core part, for $277, on eBay, and then you have to get a computer built around  that.

4 Also, apparently, the Xeon W-1300 series.  I found on Newegg an HPE ProLiant E-2314 system (quad core) for $1200, with 16GB of RAM.  Alternatively, a W-1350 6-core CPU for $280 or so, and the cheapest motherboard with the appropriate chipset (W480) was about $350.

5 Oh, Zen 4 is supposed to support AVX-512, although I guess it's implemented as a pair of AVX-256 modules, if that matters any.

6 Well, I went and looked at the Wp page on Alder Lake, probably should have done that first. Not sure it is worth the effort, looks like you’d need a first chip run from late 2021, before they physically fused things, AND a compatible Bios (msi maybe). I already have more projects and hobbies than time…

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
