somehow I've ended up the official Talos II defender on Phoronix.
@doctorlinguist sure, "somehow" :-)
@doctorlinguist I'm not in the know about this computer. It uses a POWER9 CPU.. is that a successor of the PowerPC?
@bayprogrammer more like a branch. PowerPC is a derivative of POWER, and modern POWER CPUs implement it as well.
@doctorlinguist Ah, I see. Sounds great though to have access to a new line of POWER-based workstations. Do you have a Talos II?
@bayprogrammer I'm typing this to you on one :) I have a two CPU, four core (SMT-4, 32 threads) system with 32GB of RAM, 1.5TB NVMe and a WX7100 video card running Fedora.
@doctorlinguist Woah, nice!
@bayprogrammer it's a very nice system. do note that it cost me about $7300. if that gives you sticker shock, wait for the Blackbird. they're trying to get that under $1k.
@doctorlinguist yah, I couldn't afford that right now, but I will be keeping an eye out for the Blackbird. Thanks for the heads on it, didn't know they were working on another.
