There were some concerns about power draw by accelerators, but seems like it's not an issue (although I'm not sure about if invocation logic cuts it automatically).WoW: only 55 watts IDLE package power, the lowest value i have ever seen at SPR.
the physical redesign of the DIE tiles indeed was worth it.
in my experience existence of the accelerators do NOT increase IDLE package power.There were some concerns about power draw by accelerators,
you used latest HWinfo verision, the reporting is correct within the tolerances.There's another potential flaw - these programs might not be adopted for SR and new PCH/drivers, therefore reporting could be wrong.
Probably there are some options to push it even lower (BIOS or Operating System power configuration).WoW: only 55 watts IDLE package power, the lowest value i have ever seen at SPR.

Not sure if it's question of configuration (I'm not an expert on Power Sleep States) , default state on X13DEI looks like this (without any configuration of BIOS or in Windows, only fresh install with drivers):Is there a motherboard which supports dual 84xx QS samples and also S3 sleep?
no effect.Probably there are some options to push it even lower (BIOS or Operating System power configuration).
DDR5 RDIMM is powered with +12V. your PSU has to stay ON. the hardware EFI driver must be up to date because the EFI BIOS does not init.from scratch up if wakeup,Is there a motherboard which supports dual 84xx QS samples and also S3 sleep?
afaik only ES1 are affected. note the mem.channels vanish and never come back.How about Icelake-SP ES (Stepping 5，QVxx), especially when working with supermicro single slot motherboards with 1.0bios, will there be malfunctions (such as memory channel drop, BSOD) in specific situations? Or are they completely unable to be used as production tools at all?
you want to live with a buggy BIOS ? on any problems you can't ask supermicro because they force you to upgrade to latest BIOS first.when working with supermicro single slot motherboards with 1.0bios
But I have already buy a x12spl with 1.0bios and have a Qvm7. You mentioned that there are defects in the 1.0 version of the bios, are they serious? This will make me decide whether to return this supermicro motherboard.Alternatively buy QWAx (step 6) and upgrade biosyou want to live with a buggy BIOS ? on any problems you can't ask supermicro because they force you to upgrade to latest BIOS first.
if you want to run non PRD stepping ES stay away from supermicro.
i have sold my X13SEI and moved to ASUS because i can mod the BIOS there, gigabyte is fine too.
tyan and asrock-rack removed non PRD stepping ES support.
there are bugs in any older BIOS, for that reason they provide updates.You mentioned that there are defects in the 1.0 version of the bios, are they serious?

on LGA4189 platform recently ASRock Rack and Gigabyte removed non PRD stepping ES support.This will make me decide whether to return this supermicro motherboard.Alternatively buy QWAx (step 6) and upgrade bios
I tested x12spl+qvm7 and they didn't work well. When opening hwinfo and cpu-z sometimes blue screen (memory management). And c-state must be turned off otherwise the system will be very slow. This should be a problem caused by the early BIOS and CPU, because the c-state bug disappeared after replacing qwas (D0) but hwinfo blue screen still exists, I think icx step5 is unusable.on LGA4189 platform recently ASRock Rack and Gigabyte removed non PRD stepping ES support.
but there are BIOS you can go back to or someone can mod. BIOS.
note: supermicro's BIOS is signed and protected by RootOfTrust. no way for modding.
Did you also encounter hwinfo blue screen on the SPR-SP platform?The c-state bug is acceptable, but hwinfo frustrates me so much that even though the cpu has passed all the performance tests and stress tests, I still returned the x12spl, maybe I should have kept them, they are probably the best production tool you can buy at this price.must be X12SPL issue, i have X12SPM and QVM7 with no issues like that.
yes with some HWinfo versions and with unbalanced DIMM population(i.e. only one DIMM)Did you also encounter hwinfo blue screen on the SPR-SP platform?
1..18 cores can do 3600 on QVM7, displaying ths core clocks is still to slow to get that.Performance tests are still normal, but all cores display at 3600mhz(Scheduling bugs?)
LOL. same on SPR. maybe latest Win drivers solve that issue.and significantly slow response at empty load (requires 3s to open task manager)
x12 and ES step 4 or 5 is bad solution. you stuck on buggy BIOS forever.I still returned the x12spl, maybe I should have kept them, they are probably the best production tool you can buy at this price.
