I didn't quite understand your question at the time. Sorry... :-)

I currently have a 4K display and can use that resolution on my Power system. Also if I run the command to check 3D acceleration enabled, it tells me that it is enabled on my board. I use an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT to get all of this.

It would be interesting if they could be used to make the RTX series for example from Nvdia work properly. In September, the new RTXs with AMPERE architecture will be released that promise to be really powerful, the problem is that we need someone who knows how to bring that code you are talking about, on Power ... Unfortunately Nvidia insists on not wanting to create an open source version of its drivers and this angered even the Linux creator ...!

We miss you all at the face to face conferences; those were excellent venues for more niche product lines like ours and we have yet to find a viable substitute.  Here's hoping 2021 will bring back the more decentralized physical events (i.e. supplant the Google/Amazon/Microsoft/Intel/AMD-dominated online events) and we'll get you see you in person with some of the technologies we're working on for 2021 / 2022!

I always hope to know more about Axon AIO, especially now that Power 10 is still far away ...! I hope you will soon give us some news of what these new Power 9s will look like and if we can use them to upgrade, obviously accompanied by the new RAM that AXON AIO requires ... We always stay connected ... :-)

Unfortunately up to version 5.7.9, the kernel does not work having mounted the Radeon 5700 Navi 10, I hope that at least with 5.8 they solve this situation ...

I too would like to understand, how Axon AIO will be implemented, because it is known that at the end of the year he will come out and not Power 10. I would like to understand if being always of the Power 9 line, we will be able to do the direct upgrade without a new motherboard, or else it will be anyway a new motherboard with a new Soc. From what I understood in the few articles published on Axon AIO, IBM wants to update all its servers with this processor and therefore inevitably it must have the same soc and consequently we should also be able to benefit . I know that only RAM needs to be changed because Axon AIO needs a different type of memory than the current one ... Can you tell us something more specific about this? Thank you

I think we are still a long way from having a dedicated section in Europe. Same thing I said about the sales pitch...

General Discussion / Re: The pride of being Power!

Hi Borley, I confirm that Raptor cards are built entirely in the United States of America, I believe that to date they are the only ones that can boast the construction of a motherboard for desktop computers, specifically in the West and America. Power 9 pure is produced in the United States but in New York, a Global Foundries factory that was owned by IBM micro elettronics and which left IBM's proprietary 14 nM production process as a dowry. One of the things I like most about our Power systems is this one, motherboard and processor, all made in the USA, against the rest of the world that is made in China and Taiwan ...! In fact, Raptor is proud of this and I agree with them perfectly!

No guys, the new 5.7.6 kernel doesn't work for me. I also tried to update the other spare Fedora 32 which has a mechanical Hardisk instead of an SSD, but the result does not change. The thing, however, that I understood thanks to the mechanical hardisk is that this time it just doesn't load the operating system. When I use the mechanic, obviously it takes a few seconds to load and you can also see it regularly charging Fedora 32. In this case instead, as soon as I try to start the one with version 5.7.6, as soon as it enters loading it stops almost immediately and ends , stay planted. I don't know if there is any conflict with something that I normally use and that annoys this Kernel, otherwise I won't explain it as up to now and until version 5.6.19, no problem ... I don't know whether to wait for the next version or write to the Fedora team for help ...

Then I will have had a display problem on the monitor ... I have to see and test better, thanks for the news MPC

Guys I just updated the Kernel to 5.7.6 but it seems that at least for the moment, it doesn't work on 10/14 Ships... I don't know if you've had a chance to try it too, maybe the MPC friend will have had a chance to get the same feedback...

Guys, I would avoid trying to emulate or run X86 software on Power in general. I think it doesn't make much sense, if you choose Power you're doing it to go against the trend and completely on the right side of the X86 world, so I don't think it's the best thing to do. Then in general emulators have never been a lightning bolt in my opinion, they are emulators but they will never give you the performance they can give you in their environment... Then they are my considerations attention, but in my opinion I repeat, if you marry the Power philosophy you do it just to go the opposite way to X86 and to have the performance and advantages offered by Power...

Welcome and congratulations on the many Power-based machines!

The problem is that through emulation you don't make good use of the hardware you have available and I also believe that there would be some difficulties being a very big game. The interesting thing in my opinion would be to be able to have the code available to make it a version for dedicated Power, at that point you could better exploit the features of Power in my opinion

I understand now, I believed that once you program on Linux, the code is provided given the open source nature of Linux. Of course it won't be easy at this point but let's see, maybe they will make it available, it would be nice considering the game really well done and technically incredible. It would also be a good test for video cards like the 5700 Navi 10 for example ... Hopefully good ...
