    Thanks for sharing @Andreas_Wolf!

    Good to hear news from Solid Silicon S1! This will be the CPU powering Raptors upcoming Blackbird II & Talos III series (klick).

    PCIe 5.0, DDR5 RAM, SMT-4, Bi-Endian, 32/64bit does not sound shabby either. Also looks like Power ISA 3.1C does not deprecate any features over the POWER9 so it should run G4/G5/POWER9 built code just fine.

    Yes, see comment #240 :-)

    I'm not sure if S1 will implement 3.1C or an older/newer specification. What we know at least is that Power11 will necessarily implement the same ISA spec as Power10 (see comment #248), which should be 3.1B.
