can't you just go buy one and do your own tests?

As one would expect, engineering samples have appeared on eBay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-DDR4-288-pin-Server-Ram-128GB-ES-Engineering-Sample-NMA1XBD128G2S-Rare-/173704239703?hash=item2871945a57%3Ag%3AkMMAAOSwZBRcHuk0&nma=true&si=uJeNPdZCiqjb2KGzHmZl3%252F0QftY%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

Of course it should currently be useless as the Optane DIMM support was disabled in Sky Lake-SP due to some last minute errata being discovered. I presume some semi-useful information could be gleamed like SPD information from the DIMM or just test how various boards handle the Optane DIMM is present (can it be seen as present in the UEFI even though it can't be used by Sky Lake-SP?).
