While I welcome the revival of Power, I lament the rise of NVLink. If I were a customer with clout (e.g. Google, Facebook, Alibaba, etc.), I'd push Nvidia and IBM to offer support for PCIe 4.0, as soon as feasible. I'm continually amazed at the degree of vendor lock-in that Nvidia's customers are willing to accept. Proprietary APIs and languages, proprietary bus standards... what's next?

Anyway, I'd love to hear about someone using these things for VR. Raytracing, just for starters...

BTW, I pretty much lost interest in ever owning a Mac, after they dropped PowerPC.
