I mean it doesn't matter for AMDs success or for the fact that they are currently making better processors than Intel. Or do you think that without their unofficial support for ECC Ryzens would be selling less?

It wasn't hard at all. I bought mine (about a month ago) from a small family business. Other small retailer also had ECC DIMMs available, but the first one was selling the sort of Ethernet cables I needed so I chose them instead. Only hard part was that I accidentally ordered buffered DIMMs instead of unbuffered first.

I think unofficial support is problematic for two reasons:

1) Hard to market by retailers, because they can't really say that Ryzen supports ECC memory[1].

2) It's obviously cutting some corners, because otherwise it would be official, and AMD isn't telling what that means in practice.

[1] Maybe it doesn't matter and retailers wouldn't use ECC for marketing even if the support was official.

AMD has Pro series available, but it's OEM only, has less models than standard (especially missing equivalent top model), and every model is slower than equivalent standard model. So worse in every way except ECC.

Frankly, I was hoping for more when the first Ryzens with unofficial support came out. The fact that it's still unofficial after three generations makes me less confident in it than I was back then.

I'm old enough to remember :D .
