Have you tried another PSU?
You followed this guide already?

Blackbird / Need help with troubleshooting failed to boot issue
« Last post by tle on November 06, 2023, 09:49:54 pm »
I posted a video outlining the issue I have with my blackbird at https://youtu.be/8r1HVoI3_8g?si=NhNTnHAdR-HJLJit

TL;DR; 2 days ago my old PSU died. So I replaced it with a new PSU
and now my motherboard refuse to power up.

Any help is greatly appreciated

supports call of pripyat and clear sky right now. it's based off X-ray 1.6, and chernobyl uses x-ray 1.0

Sorry I didn't get back to you on this, I realized later than I should have that openXray apparently doesn't support the original STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl yet... so even if it compiled successfully it probably wouldn't run for me at this point. What a weird release.

yeah i dont know what they did but the merge is broken for ppc64le somehow. Either way me and the other guy gave up and theres another project called IX-ray that should have better support down the line.

Yes friends, we agree, I know well that this new soc is a Power 10 and I also know perfectly well that at the time Motorola produced the various series of Power processors in the home version, i.e. PowerPC, together with IBM. Except that at the time it was very different, Motorola we all know that it was another great microprocessor manufacturer and it was the only one that was able to produce excellent versions of this family of CPUs. But let's remember that in any case it is still a slightly revised series for home and not Power processors for servers like we now have and let's always remember that Motorola was Motorola! Now the Power CPU, the real Power CPU is only IBM, even if another company takes the license and produces it, don't forget that the main thing that other companies' products have in common are the instructions. But the manufacturer then makes the CPU, the performance of an IBM product is not that of another manufacturer and vice versa. we know this because we have several examples on other architectures of how performance changes from manufacturer to manufacturer and yet they are always with the same ARM or they are proprietary processes and rest assured that Samsung's 7 nm is not IBM's 7 just as GF's 14 was not IBM's which in fact made its owner use 14... For all these things I say that in any case, it is very difficult for third-party companies to be able to come close to IBM quality also for reasons of investments as well as of technology possessed. For all this I reiterate that for me only IBM in my home and therefore I really hope that with Power 11 they can return like 8 and 9 or totally open so that we can go back to mounting IBM and have their power again in our home like now with P9!

To be honest, the MPC74xx was not bad. The only problem was the manufacturing facilities of Motorola/Freescale.

And the MPC86xx was better than the PPC970. It just came a bit too late, unfortunately.
But in the end, Apple got exactly what they paid for.

It's also historically important to remember that Motorola/Freescale and AMCC, at least for awhile, were at least as important chip fabricators as IBM during the days of O.G. PowerPC. No one batted an eye at buying a G4e 20 years ago, but IBM didn't make those (they made the G3, the 7400, and later the G5). It's not a bad thing to get back to that again even if it turns out this is an IBM design.

If anything I'm most interested in is IBM returning to its core open source design, so that it has a Power 11 processor that's exactly as open as a Power 8 or Power 9, I'm not going to buy Power CPUs. that they are not IBM because their technology is the best ever for their processors and I don't think that any other company, no matter how good, can reach their level and therefore I don't intend to change companies for these microprocessors. IBM creates it and IBM must produce it or have it produced by one of its direct partners to be the best, this at least is my humble opinion and then obviously it is debatable by anyone.

I mean, if it makes you feel better it's all but certain that the Solid Silicon S1 is a Power10 with open components replacing the previous closed-source bits. There's not another explanation that makes sense within the timeline of their operation.
