We Have AMD’s Top-Secret “Stardust” System | Tear-Down & Hands-On

Sponsor: Lexar Hades 32GB DDR4 RGB RAM https://geni.us/iDtEzA4 on Amazon
We stumbled across mysterious AMD Load Testing hardware online, codenamed “Stardust,” so we bought it to study and open up internally. This device has a ton of interesting history for Threadripper and Epyc CPU simulation and load testing, it’s also extremely rare outside of AMD test labs around the world.
