Hi all,


Just for your interest, there's a new POWER9-based mainboard from
Raptor called "Blackbird", with a much lower price point than the
TalosII which seems to be more desktop class than server oriented:

There's also a 4-core and an 8-core bundle:
https://secure.raptorcs.com/content/BK1B01/purchase.html
https://secure.raptorcs.com/content/BK1B02/purchase.html

This could make for a nice coreboot target, since so much documentation
is open, and since it shares the open source spirit with coreboot...

Documentation is available on the wiki:
https://wiki.raptorcs.com/wiki/Main_Page


Cheers, Merlin

PS: I know this isn't fully on-topic, so I hope nobody minds me
sharing it here.

PPS: There's a special pricing going on until monday midnight!

Quick follow-up: We'd love to see coreboot on these platforms. Could
even swing some free development hardware for people that are willing to
collaborate on it.

We have a page on our Wiki here that is attempting to track what is
needed and get a port off the ground:
