You can flash forwards and backwards on the 8505 unit. I started with a stock unit, flashed the non-HWP BIOS @fta provided, flashed back to the stock BIOS, flashed the HWP BIOS, reflashed the stock BIOS, then reflashed the HWP BIOS, then the stock BIOS, then the HWP BIOS again. The latest stock BIOS is available on http://pan.changwang.com:8888I'm considering to order 8505 board. The information of this thread was useful.
I have few questions/requests.
1. Can somebody made objective recap of improvements achieved by updating the BIOS. e.g.
- power IDLE
- power single/multy thread load
- CPU score
2. What are the consequences of flashing unofficial BIOS - can you upgrade /downgrade later on or is just one way route?
For me, the simplest workaround was to just install Proxmox 7.1-2 first, then upgrade both proxmox and the kernel to 6.2.Sorry for the possibly dumb question. Is there a workaround for installing proxmox 7.4 if I don't have a type-c video cable/connector?
Ahhh yes, I read through the thread quickly and saw comments about QAT which I misread as talking about quick sync.We might be confusing the terminology of QuickSync (video encoding) with Quick Assist Technology (QAT) (cryptographic processing).
Currently, it does not appear that QAT is enabled/working on these boxes, which would have been of benefit to lower CPU loads when running VPN.
FYI, I asked CWWK and one of the Topton stores.I'm thinking in buying one but not sure which cpu, i5 or i7.
Would anyone know if Intel AMT remote control works on the i7 version?
Looks like the cpu supports AMT because is vPro enterprise, but also the motherboard and bios must support it.
So, I think for my use case, proxmox+opnsense+nas+plex+other vms or containers, the i5 would be more than enough.Hello, I found out that the CPU supports AMT, but the 226 network card does not support it. You need to use the 219 network card to achieve AMT. Sorry, we don’t have it yet.
