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:

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:

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!
