asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i expect ~99.99... of ye olde golden age opterons have been melted down by nao, just like bolix etc
asciilifeform let it go on 2 diff opterons and 2 intels
asciilifeform: also so happens also that the most recent piece of iron in the torture room , excluding FG, is from '09. ( the opterons in the box i'm sitting on nao. )
asciilifeform: (if its for opterons, fughet it, hard enuff to get ~here~)
mircea_popescu: pretty sure gb nic works on ye olde opterons just as fine. raids are iffy, depend on all sorta bs ; but definitely exist such thing as proper raid controller in 2005.
asciilifeform: (inside cabinet with multiple red-hot opterons etc)
asciilifeform: the 'here is what we have' of http://btcbase.org/log/2018-02-02#1779933 is fulfilled by what mircea_popescu termed 'the random garbage in the log' (in fact a complete actionable description of asciilifeform's inventory.) the 'what we will EVER want to get' , and asciilifeform is multiply on record re subj, is more of exactly same , 63xx/61xx opterons , from same surplus contacts where asciilifeform previously obtained the 3. ☝︎
asciilifeform: btw laplinker , recent ( 2013? 14? and after..? ) amd opterons suffer from similar problem : http://btcbase.org/log/2016-10-04#1552690 ☝︎
asciilifeform: in other noose, turned up that the pilot opterons in asciilifeform's torture room have a disappointing onboard raid that supports only sata2 (3Gb/s). upgrading'em with sata3 raidtrons (6Gb/s)
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-17#1740119 << similar here, with opterons. but they have the drawbacks already discussed. ( power hungry, run hot, not obtainable in arbitrary qty given as no longer made ) ☝︎
asciilifeform: you also running opterons, BingoBoingo ?
ben_vulpes: what do your opterons peak out at?
asciilifeform: y'know them opterons dun actually ~pull~ those 700w here on my desk, mircea_popescu
asciilifeform: opterons!
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: opterons too
asciilifeform: this is like the opterons thread all over again.
asciilifeform: a number of other opterons also.
asciilifeform: now i've thought about having a mobo for ~classic~ opterons made. but this would easily go 10,000 $ a piece in small qty. and needs docs that i dun have.
asciilifeform: incidentally, if it turns out that mircea_popescu had in fact buried 10,001 opterons somewhere in the desert, now'd be the time to dig'em up. and profit margin will be very respectable.
mircea_popescu: "oh, i'm too fucking good to send some opterons to be racked and btw we begged for less cock. or more. or something, anyway FOR LITERALLY YEARS!!11"
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-03-18#1628916 << my opterons don't have a throttled clock, physically ☝︎
asciilifeform: ('these' being my opterons or mircea_popescu's phenoms)
a111: Logged on 2016-09-24 03:23 trinque: trolling places like craigslist and ebay for vintage opterons, probably also not a bad idea
trinque: trolling places like craigslist and ebay for vintage opterons, probably also not a bad idea ☟︎
asciilifeform: briefly returning to the opterons, unfortunately they are quite useless alone, they must be stockpiled with ~period mb~
asciilifeform: in mostly unrelated news, i finally got a new pair of opterons.
ascii_butugychag: in other nyooz, turns out that golden-age opterons (just the chip) can be had for their weight in mere gold on 'ebay'
assbot: Logged on 31-01-2016 05:13:11; BingoBoingo: Dual opteron, apparently only text mode works but who needs graphics when you have two opterons?

asciilifeform: also opterons run hot.
ascii_field: opterons.
gabriel_laddel: asciilifeform: what is wrong with stockpiling AMD opterons?
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski: not all opterons are created equal
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: inb4 amd opterons are going for $1k a pop
pete_dushenski: if this doesn't have you hunting the local classifieds for amd opterons and fxes, i dunno what will
BingoBoingo: To be fair odd idea people find their way here and he wants a Lispy Unix. You tried to break Opterons into Lisp-Machiners.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the very expensive opterons nobody buys
asciilifeform: $maxint opterons
thestringpuller: ascii_field: and his love of Opterons
ascii_field: pete_dushenski: amd opterons, 'tyan' board circa '07
decimation: more interesting are all of the server motherboards, but it seems like support is limited to old opterons
gabriel_laddel: as for the fight in our realm, I'd like to buy 10ks of AMD opterons K8 chips and reverse engineer them. Give designs to China.
BingoBoingo: Breaking Opterons do do things they were never intended for
Diablo-D3: and I believe I also said that opterons with htx bridges are numa
