AMD tries to spoil Nvidia's week by teasing high-end accelerators, Epyc chips with 3D L3 cache, and more

Because it's near impossible to buy AMD kit through the major OEM's or resellers at a competitive price.

Dell stock AMD boxes on their website, but only as Alienware gaming desktops, the cheapest of which is priced at £1100

The HP website stocks 2 Ryzen 3 boxes as "all in ones", which nobody wants and ryzen 5 & 7's in the sff factor only, and most businesses prefer towers.

Notably these are the same people whom Intel paid not to sell AMD hardware way back in the AMD64 days which was uncovered by the EU and Intel were given a billion dollar fine back in 2009, which notably Intel still hasn't paid the fine for.

It's not that these companies don't actually produce the hardware, it's just that they are deliberately unmarketed. Try and find a HP 295 MT G6 through the HP website. It's impossible; they simply aren't for sale.

Despite there being plenty of them available for sale elseware:-

I don't think it's completely unreasonable to consider the likely reason for that...
