@Patrick Sure! That sounds great!
I created a thread here:
I'll try and get both the Broadcom and the Bluefield-2 in the same box to do some benchmark.
Starting a thread for info, resources, docs, files required for using the Broadcom "Stingray" line of SmartNICs.
Recently found some cheap PS225 Broadcom SmartNICs on eBay and picked one up.
As I quickly found out it seems Broadcom has quietly killed off all their SmartNICs and as such...
And here it is, as described in the listing, they are brand new, sealed. Pictured here below a dual port 25Gbe Bluefield-II for reference :)
Came with both brackets as pictured too. Box says 3-15-21, not that old at all!
I'd love to know who else grabbed some cards to collaborate on tinkering...
Your looking for these guys I think...
This seller took an offer of 10, 20, 10 respectively on these:
Though I bought 4+ of each and made the offer all at the same time.
Not sure on the life left on them, haven't decided if I am going to order some yet or not.
Decent write endurance though so hopefully for moderate...
I was thinking something similar, at-least in terms of having it run in a root complex mode... But unfortunately it seems this is locked to the 100Gb model from Broadcom... I see no mention that the lower end models support root complex :(
I see no reason why it couldn't though since it seems...
Apologies, yes I meant to say that the model number does seem to match the doc! This person seems to sell random stuff, a few things new in the box like this. So I have no reason to believe that would be wrong.
Hey everyone, first post here on the forums, hope posting here first is OK!
Found these guys while trolling eBay... Have been very thankful for the forums here and others who have shared deals and their experiences with said hardware. So I figured I would give back.
This seller will take $200 a...
