General OpenPOWER Discussion / News?
« on: July 30, 2020, 06:14:32 pm »
I was wondering if there is any news about Raptor.  They don't seem to post any news here or on their web page.  Do they have any new products coming out?  How are they weathering the plague?  etc.?

The talospace blog seems to be the best source of power9 and/or Raptor news that I've seen...

Blackbird / Blackbird memory options...
« on: May 21, 2020, 04:15:19 pm »
So the manual for the Blackbird doesn't have much to say about the memory, besides:

DDR4 1600/1866/2133/2400/2666 ECC

The wiki says more:

must be registered (RDIMM); must NOT be LRDIMM.
The supported memory speeds are 1600, 1866, 2133, 2400, 2666 MHz.
Ram will be running at a potentially slower frequency (2666, 2400, or 2133) based on if there is 1, 2 or 4 DIMMs per channel

So as a noob to this stuff, what is a good approach to picking RAM for the Blackbird?  For example, would 2 8GB sticks be better than a single 16GB?  Or is it better to leave a slot open for a future upgrade?  How much does the speed matter?
