If you look into what the power9 can do and compare it to comparable x86 64 hardware you will see it really isn't pricey. For a workstation it is depending on what you need it for. I don't know how much a brand new Apple dual socket workstation runs but the Raptor beat the snot out of it pound for pound. It is really in the league of something like an old silicon graphics workstation compared to an intel workstation of that day. I'm really excited about this because the Power 8 didn't make it very far out of the datacenter. The Raptor board also has direct cpu to pcie 4.0 bus architecture with no hub/switch. Kind of reminded me of the 68000 when I heard that. If you were to use it with something like Nvidia GPU co-processor cards or FPGA cards etc you would have bandwidth that simply cannot be had in Intel architecture. I wish I had had this option on a project I worked on several years ago. We had horrid issues with bottlenecking and cashe thrashing because of Intel's IOH architecture. We were feeding datasets in excess of 10TB that look very much like whitenoise through dual socket multi core servers with either 4 or 8 Nvidia GPU co-processor cards per node doing 'advanced mathematics' and then of course sending the results back to NAS storage appliances. The machines were clustered with both dual bonded gigabit Ethernet and a separate network of FDR Infiniband. At this time it was hard just to find a motherboard that would run 8 GPU cards in production without melting. If you are going to run windows there is simply no reason to have a machine like this. Besides, Windows has so many designed in back doors that it is completely useless for privacy. You may be able to run a windows virtual machine. Not sure. Would probably require more involved hardware emulation or perhaps run a phi card? Idk. I'm sure that someone creative enough could make it work. If I did work for a military agency defending our infrastructure, which I don't, the Raptor is exactly what I would want for a workstation to duke it out with the chinks and the power9 would be my choice in a datacenter platform after this breach. I would also demand MADE IN USA.
