Absolutely. I'd love to get my hands on one of these. It's actually reached the point where RAM has become the limiting factor - with 128 threads, 256GB is simply not enough. Even if I turned off SMT, 4GB/core is just not enough for what I do now. Short of some (extremely expensive) server kit, the only real option now is RAID0'ing four NVMe drives together and using them for swap, which is obviously a far from perfect solution - although even if they wore out and needed replacing inside a year (unlikely) it would still cost a lot less than a server crammed full of 2-4TB of RAM.
