1 "This one is PCIe 3.0 only"
Intel shills assure me that's not a problem because even the fastest video card can barely saturate a 3.0 x16 link.
It doesn't seem to occur to them that using a 4.0 x8 link instead means you have 8 more lanes.

2 Full cloud:  I wonder if that's in any way related to the story not too long ago about the way Azure counts memory leading it to say you can't have any more even though there's lots more.

3 On PCIe - yep.  It means AMD now has 48 lanes worth of bandwidth on their standard desktop chips, like Intel's workstation parts.  But Epyc has so much bandwidth anyway that it doesn't matter as much.
