AMD Epyc server running Veeam

As part of our redesign of our Veeam backup infrastructure, I'm seriously looking into replacing our aging physical server with one running the new EPYC server cpu (for ex. the newly announced HPE DL385 Gen 10) rather than an Intel based one. The advantage (besides price) should be the better memory bandwidth and only needing one CPU (for ex the EPYC 7401P with 24 cores) in order to access all the PCIe ports of the server (we would probably use several for 10Gb Ethernet, 16Gb fibrechannel, SAS hba and a SAS RAID controller for the external storage drive array) - as well as using the onboard M2 slots to add some SSD acceleration to FLR / instant restore or Surebackup (as these are all transitory data, so maybe no need to have any RAID protection for them)

Does anyone have any experience yet with these CPU's, are there any gotcha's for using them with Veeam?

Basically, Veeam B&R is hardware agnostic, so there shouldn't be any issues.
