TechEnablement spoke with Brad McCredie (Vice President and IBM Fellow) today about the Power 9 announcement and the accessibility of an OpenPower system with NVlink.
The good news is that interested groups can submit proposals now to get access to OpenPower systems and to get access – according to McCredie – to an OpenPower using NVlink in the third quarter of this year.
Proposal submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Power 9 processor also looks very interesting. Following is the slide that McCredie put up on this new processor:
More information will be forthcoming as the slides are made available.
