    That's a little exaggerated, I'd say ;-)
    Btw, I have to correct my assumption that Hexin's HX-C2000 is POWER9. It's still essentially POWER8 like the HX-C1000, but with PCIe upgraded from v3 to v5, memory upgraded from DDR4 (via Centaur) to DDR5 (directly connected) and other upgrades/changes to the core and "uncore":

    So in essence, it's a modified/improved POWER8 (but still no POWER9 or higher) combined with Power10-level on-chip controllers.
