Where I can download BIOS 1.0 for X12SPL ?
unfortunaly 1.0 is unofficial BIOS, and can not be flashed by normal way (IPMI / SUM)
we have to swap the BIOS chip. i replaced the chip with SMT socket.
PM you.

There are some Sapphire Rapids ES floating on Taobao and ebay, does anybody tested them?
yes,
give me QDF and i can check.
if you want to buy one, take QYnn, better higher second letter than X, after Z comes '0'
QVnn, QWnn, QXnn are to old and need to work Test/Debug BIOS.
if you want to buy motherboard for test, avoid supermicro, X13 uses RoT mechanism, no BIOS modd.
gigabyte is best. Tyan/ASRock C741 boards lack microcode D0.
SPR-WS need W790 chipset(DMI4x8)
SPR-SP need C741 chipset(DMI3x8)
edit:
SPR-SP ES D0 run on ASUS W790 boards.
ASRock W790 WS BIOS includes D0 microcode too, but not tested.

Does anyone know the boost frequency steps for a Platinum 8272cl?
All I could find out is 2C 37X and all Core 34X non AVX.

no but forget ES C0, C1, C2). the microcode is not included even in oldest official BIOS.

How bad is SPR D0? My understanding is there were *a lot* of SPR steppings because the pre-final ones were...kind of broken, but perhaps the broken parts were just the accelerators and the CPU features work fine?

D0 is good, mostly ES2. if you find a board with BIOS still included microcode for stepping D0.
Tyan BIOS only includes Ex stepping microcodes. Gigabyte still includes stepping D0.
i don't found any (official) BIOS with support of the B0,C0,C1,C2 steppings.
i expect many DDR5,PCIe 5 issues with early SPR ES.
QYFQ ( yes, i have currently only one working RDIMM Kingston KF556R36RB-16 @4800)

Dear Experts,

would the following Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 ES QQ87 28C 2,7 GHz 3,3/4,0 GHz 38,5 MB 205W LGA3647 DDR4 work on a Supermicro X11DPI-N mobo?

kind regards,

J

ice lakes ES2 become cheap, even from ebay us.
you need asrock or gigabyte motherboard, or supermicro but:
works only on supermicro single socket with BIOS 1.0(hardly to find) and X12DPi with BIOS up to 1.1c
on the first picture it looks like the QVM7(8360y ES2) can go x36 all cores, but it is only an illusion(greetings from windows task scheduler)

but if we disable 18 cores QVM7 can do x36 all cores.

Thanks for the reply RolloZ170. I can verify that the QVM7 only does 36x on up to 18 cores, as I've ran one of these with HWiNFO64 myself on an AsRock Rack SPC621D8 board. I would post a picture, but the site is being picky on image file size.
