The POWER9 S922 server supports two processor sockets, offering 10-core/20-core, 8-core/16-core, or 4-core POWER9 configurations in a 19-inch rack-mount, 2U (EIA units) drawer configuration. The POWER9 S922 server supports a maximum of 32 DDR4 DIMM slots. Memory features supported are 8GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB, and run at different speeds of 2133, 2400, and 2666 Mbps, offering a maximum system memory of 4096 GB.
IBM Power S922 and IBM i
IBM i support is provided at a price-attractive P10 software tier even though the S922 has two sockets. However, there are limitations to the maximum size of the partition, and all I/O must be virtualized through VIOS. Up to four cores (real or virtual) per IBM i partition are supported. Multiple IBM i partitions can be created and run concurrently, and each individual partition can have up to four cores
IBM i QPRCRFEAT values are the same numeric value as the processor feature code. IBM i does not support the 4-core processor feature EP16
The 8-core processor (#EP18, QPRCRFEAT EP18) is IBM i SW tier P10.
The 10-core processor (#EP19, QPRCRFEAT EP19) is IBM i SW tier P10.
