All,

I am looking for some assitance verifying a photo I saw in a company's marketing materials is indeed a 3+ year old STH photo.

I was checking out the Cavium ARMv8 development platforms and I saw a photo I recognized. From STH's Dell PowerEdge C6100 XS23-TY3 Cloud Serve – 2U 4 Node 8 Sockets Published February 11, 2013.

I was doing some research on Cavium's site when I clicked on the links here for the ThunderX 2K ThunderX Customer Reference Platforms:

You are taken to a PDF here.

Does that photo look at all like the STH photo published in the February 11, 2013 piece?

Yea, they look the same to me. Same scuffs on the air shrouds and same small mark on the fin of the black heatsink in node 3.

Yes they are the same if you resize them to match (and look the identical even w/o bothering to go that far).
I imagine this is why so many of the tech sites switched over to watermarking the images they put up, but it is a shame they have to do that.
