Apart from the POWER8 "Turismo" and accompanying Centaur chip from IBM, according to http://www.tyan.com/manuals/SP010_QIG_v1%200.pdf the major on-board peripheral controllers are these:
- SATA3: Marvell 88SE9235
- USB3: TI TUSB7340
- GbE: Broadcom BCM5718
Given that Ubuntu Linux is the recommended OS for this board/system, there should be open source drivers.
