Calling IBM, Come in IBM!

Some folks here would like to know about Power9 power consumption, competitive benchmarks and whether the eDRAM still uses deep trench.

Calling IBM!

Couple of things :

1. Power9 power consumption is not a sellable point. ( I heard IBM couldn't bring down num of watts )
2. Benchmarking analysis is not mentioned w.r.t its competitors.
3. Over all only performance boost is highlighted. ( Not sure what is the trade-off here )

Plus point :

Finally, IBM realized to open up to catch up the market. Though it is too late but you never know what is in the basket ( a real hot chips )

Are the 120 Mbyte embedded DRAM in shared L3 cache with this 14nm FINFET technology still a deep trench technology ?
