i purchased X11DPi-NT rev. 2.01A with Gold 5218 QQZ3.
QQZ3 is B0 50656, PRD microcode.
similar to QRA9,QRGE(QS) but no display. HWinfo does not know the QQZ3.
the QQZx are shipped by Intel in Confidential Evaluation Servers.
QQxx is ES. QRxx is QS.. In general for that generation.
most QQxx are ES2 but PRD stepping.
But:
QQRB = 8280M QS A0
QQRC = 8280L QS A0
QQCA = 8253 QS A0
you have include the third char, if this is one of '0123456789' its a ES2
QQ8A,QQ8M,QQ8B,QQ87,QQ89,QQ8Q,QQ9E

What Board and version does not accept QS CPUs any more? Are those Pre-QS or final stepping?
HP newer BIOS lacks stepping A0 50655 microcode, because A0 is not supported by Intel anymore(latest is 12.04.2019)
other problems i noticed are not validated, can be caused by other reasons.
