This is one nice looking and quiet home-build PC system option. http://fabiensanglard.net/the_beautiful_machine/index.html
FYI: I'm thinking of doing an AMD Ryzen build with as many cores as I can cram on a motherboard. (And afford, of course.)
Of course I could just drop $15 grand on a dual EPYC Rome motherboard with 128 cores. https://www.newegg.com/supermicro-mbd-h11dsi-n702-ma015-o-dual-amd-epyc-7000-series/p/N82E16813183691?Description=epyc%20motherboard&cm_re=epyc_motherboard-_-13-183-691-_-Product
Imagine a 128 core machine running a hypervisor.
On four cores you have Linux set up as a dedicated I/O processor–it's the only process that has peripherals. On four cores you have Linux set up as a memory pipe processor and container manager.
On the remaining 120 cores you have containers with either one or two cores. In the containers you are running discrete services compiled with Unikernels and only communicating via memory pipes set up as either pure serial streams or as network sockets.
OK, now image a hundred of the above networked together to support truly gargantuan simulations with hundreds of millions of actors.
